I’m not going to lie, Tuesday and Wednesday weren’t the best days of my pregnant life. Week 24 seems to have brought a weird stomachache along with some heartburn and a lack the desire to really eat anything. Me not wanting to eat is REALLY weird – I always like food – happy, sad, stressed…I eat. Basically I just don’t feel like myself and while I want to complain and play the pregnancy card, I’ve tried to rally and be thankful for how healthy I have felt the entire time. I’m hoping that this is a short phase and that I’ll be back to “normal” in no time.
But you’re here for food…so here’s a peak at dinner this past Monday. It was a good one.
A meat and potatoes dinner that isn’t a steak and roasted potatoes. Instead, the famous cheesesteak sandwich is turned into a stuffed baked potato for a nutritious, filling and delicious feeling that your whole family will love.
You can either cook your potatoes in the microwave or in the oven (I prefer the oven if I have the time, I think the skin is so much better). Thinly sliced steak is seared after being seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder. The steak needs less than two minutes to cook – so watch it. Remove the beef and add in your peppers, onions and mushrooms and sauté until softened. Season with salt and pepper.
Cut the potatoes in half and top with the veggies plus the beef and then a generous amount of cheeeeeeese. Broil until the cheese is melted and then dig in.
I loved this spin on a classic and found that while it was meaty and cheesy, it wasn’t heavy.
Oh, and our garden is still producing lots of bell peppers which is one benefit of still having warm weather.
