I made my favorite steak sandwiches for dinner tonight. They’re ridiculously easy to make, and so delicious. I start with an onion, thinly sliced, and sauté it in a bit of olive oil until the onion is translucent. Then I add in thinly sliced ribeye and a few slices of bacon chopped into bits, and cook until the steak is medium-done. Some ground black pepper finishes off the steak-onion mixture. For the rolls, this time I tried Cobblestone Mill’s whole wheat sub rolls, which worked well. I spread them with a mix of mayonnaise and crushed garlic, then place slices of provolone cheese on top of the mayo. Then, I spoon the steak mixture on top of the cheese and bake at 400° for about 5-8 minutes. The bread ends up toasty, the cheese melty, and they seem to taste better every time I make them.
In other news, we’re waiting to find out what Sandy is going to do to us. I expect we’ll lose power, but I hope it doesn’t stay out too long. Luckily, we live on the third floor of a condo building, so we’re not at risk for flooding.
I haven’t written much in the last week, but I am now 5 for 5 on my elliptical plan. Only 18 more days! I’ve been doing a lot of intensive cleaning this week, and I’m really enjoying my steam mop.
I have a few social plans this week, but we’ll see if Sandy interferes with them. I also turn 39 this Thursday – I can’t believe I’ll be 40 next year! Domingos will turn 40 when we’re in India – I think we will be riding an elephant in Jaipur on his birthday.
