Hubby has a 3 day weekend and he's the cook tonight. He's making up those giant grilled hamburger steaks stuffed with onions he loves so much, baked potatoes and corn. My job is brown gravy and TX toast.
Haven't grilled a good steak at home in ages (due mostly to my red meat reduction program), but I've got some new St. Elmos Steak Seasoning and Izzy's sauce to try out, so tonight's the night! If you like HOT, St. Elmos has you covered, so it should be interesting. 🥵
Steamed broccoli and baked potato on the side, along with a nice Malbec. Will wash down my burning mouth with a nicely Stone Street Cold Brew Dark coffee with milk + brown coconut sugar and a bid slice of tiramisu.
I personally don't deserve this fine meal, so I'm at least going to have a tough home workout first, and maybe organize the garage a bit to earn it.
For breakfast we had egg baked portobellos, biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, and mimosas. Dinner will be a spiral ham, colcannon and gravy, green bean almondine, and dinner rolls. Easter candy for dessert.
Tonight's dinner is tacos el pastor with all the trimmings. Chips, salsa and guac on the side with Orange Creamsicle pie for dessert. We found out a few hours ago, it's our fav neighbors BD and we told her to expect a plate around 7, beer included.

Not sure about tonight. Wife made a couple cherry pies and an apple pie on Saturday, also boiled up 4 dozen eggs. yesterday we both made a batch of deviled eggs (we make them very different) and got out the stuff for a good relish tray with garlic stuffed green olives, marinated mushrooms, pickled baby corn and onions, other stuff too lots of variety. Then we headed up to my parents for Easter dinner. My brother lived way out of state for a long time so it was the first time we all got together at the same time in 11 years.
Mom went simple with venison roast with taters and gravy and carrots, and dinner rolls. It was a simple but very good holiday dinner.
Yesterday (Easter) I made an early dinner (2:30 PM) Dijon coated ham, baked garnet yams, baked beans, vegetable mix and a sweet mustard lemon and butter sauce for the ham. I guess there was a salad of some sort, but I didn't have any.
Tonight is rib eye steak, baked potatoes, vegetable beef soup, and a arugula, strawberry and goad cheese salad with a balsamic vinegar dressing.
From a high of 77 yesterday to a high of 54 with expected lows in the 20's...The wife is sneaking in a 15 bean soup with leftover ham. It always seems to me to be a little more satisfying when it is chilly outside. Samuel Adams Golden Ale as a precursor.
