Rainy Lunch

Today is such a rainy yucky day.  I was out and about with my dad and was going to just swing by our favorite Mexician place to grab lunch, but decided to just go home.  I think that was a good choice because none of us wanted to get wet again. What fun is that? 

Sometimes it's really hard to find motivation to cook every meal every day, am I right? But I came home because I knew I took some meat out the other day and could cook that quickly. 

I decided to cut it up and make steak tips.  I took some broccoli out of the freezer and roasted it in the oven. Then, I made some instant pot macaroni.  Man, I can't tell you how easy it is to cook that mac! I was and am still a bit intimidated by my instant pot.  I got it to make yogurt.  I was so excited when I saw that thing online, I told my husband that I wanted it because we eat so much yogurt over here. I just knew I'd be making yogurt ALL the dang time.  Have I made it? No. ha!  Fooled him! Just kidding. Sort of. 

I still plan on making that yogurt one day. 

Super soon. ;o)

So I made our steak tips in a pan with a little olive oil and butter. Salt and pepper to our liking and cooked to our preference. 

What is your preference in how your meat is cooked? Do you like it well done? rare? medium? 

Back in the day I liked it well done. I did not want to see pink in my meat! Now.... I like it medium, medium rare.  So funny how your taste buds change over time! 

I am glad I got the motivation to come home and cook, this ended up being an easy lunch to whip up and the kids made happy plates.  Can't ask for much more than that!
