What I Made for Dinner: May 27 & 28, 2009

Steak salad; steak tacos.

Back on Sunday when we grilled beef kabobs, we made way too much steak. The reason is that in the fall we bought one-fourth of a cow, which has worked out terrific except that the processor didn't weight-label the packages. And the meat is packed in these compact little freezer bags, maybe vacuum-sealed but I'm not sure, but at any rate the packages are much smaller than ordinary supermarket meat packages. So it is really hard to judge how much exactly is in a pack of kabob cuts, and it looks kind of small, so we decided to defrost two packages. And as it turned out, two packages is a freaking lot of beef kabobs.

Faced with a huge pile of defrosted pieces of steak, we grilled it all and hoped for the best. "The best" being creative and timely use of leftovers.

So last night was steak salad, always a tasty standby, with sweet onions and goat cheese and asparagus. Tonight was steak tacos, standard fixings (I simmered the leftovers in water with taco seasoning). I think we're done now.

In other food news, Eli had his first peanut butter and jelly sandwich today. He loved it (after he finished throwing a humongous temper tantrum at the outrage of my requiring him to eat lunch AT THE ZOO). No allergic reaction. Cool!
