Geez, is it Tuesday already?
This morning, it was the usual hustle and bustle to get the kiddos fed, washed, and packed up for school. Luckily, I had a box of leftovers to scarf down for breakfast.
(Helpful tip #1: Save every last scrap of leftovers no matter how small. I repurposed “old” meat and veggies for breakfast and lunch today.)
For lunch, I made myself a quick stir-fry with leftover duck confit, shallots, trumpet mushrooms, and tatsoi greens.
(Helpful hint #2: Stir-fry will save you every time you’re in a quandary about what to eat. We Chinese peeps invented everything that’s awesome. And we’re so modest, too.)
We returned to our house in the late afternoon because I can’t stand cooking at the Inn. I put on a pot of cheater pressure cooker oxtails for tomorrow night’s dinner…
… and seasoned a small tri-tip steak (that I butchered myself!).
Once the steak was at room temperature, I seared it in a pan before finishing the beef off in the oven.
While the steak was resting…
…I broiled a tray of asparagus…
…and smashed up a bowl of guacamole.
Once the veggies were finished, I sliced up the steak…
…and plated my supper.
Before I turn in tonight (which, incidentally, will be the last time I hit the sheets at nighttime this week), I just wanted to let you in on a little secret: I’m having another giveaway tomorrow morning!
