Well, I most certainly wasn’t planning on making a nice dinner tonight. Recovering from what was a completely sugar-consumed weekend in Toronto (seriously, yesterday all I ate was funnel cake, oreos, chips and McDonalds…), I was thinking of taking it easy and making the standard toast, peanut butter and applesauce. Then it hit me – tonight was the finale of Hell’s Kitchen (GO HOLLI!). As an informal rule, whenever I watch some sort of culinary show, I am obligated to make something worthy to eat while watching it.
Adding to that rule was the fact that I haven’t had any sort of real protein in my diet for so long (besides chicken, but that only half counts), so I decided to go all out and eat the best of the best: steak! For the first time, I didn’t even buy the discounted will-go-bad-in-a-day steak, and bought my first meat purchase over $4. I’m moving up in the world!
Thisrecipe was from my Canadian Living Everyday Favourites cookbook, and involved some delicious teriyaki-dijon mustard marinated steak and red onions sautéed in pesto. Also, if I were to rank this sandwich on a messiness scale of one to 10, I would have to declare this one a solid 24. It’s a good thing that I firmly believe that the messier something is, the better it tastes. Bringing leftovers for lunch – the co-workers will be disgusted by my inability to eat cleanly. Will try my hardest.
