Tonight we had steak (strip loin for me, rib eye for husband) and potato salad. Really hit the spot.

We had a leftover steak from yesterday, so husband made steak sandwiches on the bread that I baked last night. We had them with leftover potato salad.

Really, really tasty - husband normally makes really good steak sandwiches but the fresh bread just added an extra layer of deliciousness.

I made Mac and cheese for dinner tonight. No real recipe, just kind of made it up as I went along with ingredients that we happened to have on hand.

First I cooked some diced bacon and onions until crispy. Pulled those out, then made hot sauce breadcrumbs in the same pan: cubed some stale bread, toasted it in the pan, then poured over some hot sauce mixed with a bit of milk. Dumped those out of the pan, then added a bit of pasta cooking water just to deglaze the pan, and a can of condensed cream of broccoli soup. Added milk until the consistency looked right, tossed in a bit of dry mustard powder and black pepper, then added in the cheese and stirred until it melted. Added the cooked macaroni, bacon-onion mixture, and some frozen green peas, just because a vegetable seemed like a good idea.

Poured the whole thing into a casserole dish, topped it with the hot sauce breadcrumbs, and then let it bake for a bit.

It came out perfect! I love recipes like that, where you can just kinda play with it and see what happens. Husband said it was his favourite Mac and cheese ever.

Husband went grocery shopping today and bought another 2 weeks worth of food - we’re trying to limit shopping trips to once every couple of weeks, since there’s been a spike in cases here.

So now that I have ingredients, tonight I made ginger-honey chicken thighs, served over rice with steamed carrots and a slice of fresh-out-of-the-oven sourdough bread.

^^^ That's very nice, and I like that plate, too! I also made bread yesterday, a buttermilk-sorghum loaf.
