I’ve been drained today. I slept fine–At least I thought I did. It might very well be the weather. It’s been gloomy and windy as all get-out today, and I was kind of hoping for some comfort food this evening. Specifically, I wanted to make a beef and tomato stroganoff dish that’s in the latest Everyday Food. I gave the bambino the option between that, and a flank steak with arugula and potato salad. He opted for the steak and potatoes. Which was okay. A coworker gave me a bunch of fresh herbs from her garden, including some rosemary:
Which I needed along with some finely minced garlic and olive oil, to put on the steak. I couldn’t find arugula by itself at the store, so I substituted a bag of mixed baby herbs instead. All the potatoes came from our garden. The salad was dressed in balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil, which I actually liked. I usually don’t care for balsamic vinegar. Overall I think it turned out pretty well:
Although I would’ve liked the steak just a little more cooked. There were a few pieces that were rarer than I would’ve liked, but I let Jay eat those. I’ll be having a bunch of leftover salad with the potatoes that the bambino didn’t eat and a few slices of steak for lunch tomorrow.
When we were at the store, I decided we needed some dessert.

Damn you Peanut Butter Fudge Chip. I’ve had 4 of them. Good thing I’m going to bed soon, or I might be inclined to eat the whole box!
