BLT Steak Salad

I missed out the cheese that would've made it look just that little bit better.

So it’s common knowledge I love beef. I also love having myself a good BLT sandwich.

My parents are currently away in Malaysia, and will only be back later in week. With my Dad not around to make dinner, the responsibility naturally fell on my shoulders to “tank”. I blame my ovaries — wait, before you freak out at my preposterously crude remark, do understand it’s because I have two brothers and being the only daughter… You get my drift.

Now this is really a challenge. Settling my meal is easy; I’m O.K. with quick salads or sandwiches. My brothers? Hm, not so much.

Check out my attempt at striking a balance: give and take, with a little compromise.

Potato Gumbo

Never eaten this before in my life... Not 'til about a couple of weeks ago.

So I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve found I actually have other things to do with my life, ha.

Anyway, as promised, I’m back with the potato gumbo recipe.

I hope all of you have been looking forward to this post. (Well, even if you haven’t, I’ve got one fan for sure — K has been bugging me to get this recipe up because when we had it over dinner he just loved it so much!)

And, if I hadn’t previously already mentioned, K is quite the foodie. So… You’ve definitely got the free hand deciding whether or not to trust his judgment; but if you love food too that shouldn’t be too hard a decision to make. I mean, just saying 😉

Stay-Home Saturday Dinners

I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like, and it truly bothers me 😦

So tonight, despite yet another long tiring day at work, I decided to expend this little extra bit of energy to get a post up — albeit probably a shorter one.

My rants on work and the experience there won’t take center stage today; rather, I’ll share about Saturday home(cooked) dinners I look forward to almost every week 🙂

Food is just such an essential part of life (yea, this could be an understatement on its own!) that I can’t help but feel all fired up just thinking and talking about it!
