Weekend eats and treats

Saturday night I used the UIM, which turned out to be chuck steak, to make steak in gravy. I served it with green beans and brussels sprouts and it was very good!

Sunday night I had something similar but I added 1/2 a block of cream cheese, cut into small chunks, to the slow cooker and that gave the dish a little extra zing. It was served over baked potato and I had more green beans and brussels sprouts. What can I say...I like those two vegetables. A lot.

I'd bought (gasp, yes I bought!) some green onion dip and snacked on that last night with just a few Fritos corn chips. I do love green onion dip but haven't bought any in years. One of my favorite things to do with it is to smear it on a slice of turkey ham, top with a slice of cheese (mozzarella or sharp cheddar, preferably) and roll it up and eat. Yum!

Hey! Good to see your blog back active.

I like plain food too and went through a month or so this fall when I was buying and eating french onion on Fritos as well.
