Steak dinner with my momma


I had a lovely Sunday - aside from the yoga that made me angry haha (will post about it this week). I slept in a bit, got 2 loads of laundry done, prepped lunches for Mon - Wed, went grocery shopping, and had a lovely steak dinner with my mom.

We prefer to make our own dinner for many reasons: it's less expensive, you have the comfort of your home, and you know what you're eating. I can make meals just as good if not better than a lot of places (if you're not going out to spend $50 per person) for a fraction of the cost.

Tonight we bought T-bone steaks and grilled on them on the 'cue with no sauce, just a rub. While my mom was grilling I sauteed onions and shitake mushrooms to top the steaks with and I prepared a Greek salad. I chopped up red onion, garden tomatoes, and cucumbers, and added some sundried black olives. For dressing I used 1T each of olive oil and white vinegar with some oregano and basil. I ate mine as is but my mom opted for red leaf lettuce with her's. It was a perfect dinner. We had some frozen yogurt for dessert - she likes buying the Chapman's frozen yogurt and it's just over 100 calories per 1/2 cup. I usually only take 1/4 or 1/3 of a cup but I took a bit more tonight. :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend and I'll post tomorrow about my yoga experience and what I bought for groceries. I'm also pretty excited about what I have packed for food tomorrow.
