Steak Prostitute

I am a “Steak Prostitute”.

Let me explain…There is something I really really want to do and I kinda need Ben to agree with it before I do it so I needed to persuade him. I had it – a genius idea! Steak! Now, I know I am a hypocrite because I don’t eat meat*, but these are desperate times people. (*I do eat fish.)DSCN1222

When Ben came home and saw that I made him steak he was so happy he agreed to my crazy scheme and now we are both happy. Everybody wins (except the cow, but I’m trying to put that out of my head). Don’t judge me, I’m from Pico.DSCN1216

> In all seriousness, I don’t eat meat for a couple of reasons. But, I do not judge anyone who does. What I put in my mouth is my choice and what other’s eat is their choice. I married a guy who describes himself as “meat and potatoes”. Since I do most of the cooking he does not actually eat a lot ofย  meat. Every so often I will make him a meat dish. Really, he compromises a lot more than I do in the food department. I hope you’re not offended by this off-color joke.

Back to eats: I swear by rice and soy sauce (with protein and veggies) for carb loading. I didn’t eat this the night before my last long run and I’m hoping that’s why I had such a bad run ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Tonight I’m making brown rice to go with some random leftovers I have. If this doesn’t work I don’t know what to do!DSCN1219

Lunch was a deviled egg sandwich and kiwi. I was totally craving deviled egg recently and finally got around to making it. I use light mayo – not yogurt or some other “healthy” substitute, I figure once in a while you should have a real deviled egg sammie!DSCN1209

The huge iced coffee kind of upset my stomach this morning and I wasn’t hungry until after 12:30 today – this is weird because I’m normally starved by 11!

In the afternoon I had some dark chocolate covered pretzels and finished off the bag when I got home – oops!DSCN1210

I also had some of these in the afternoon:



Now I am making chocolate chip cookies and relaxing with trash TV. I have a major craving for chocolate chip cookies after watching that Martha Stewart show where her daughter makes comments with her friend. Random.

I used this recipe, until I realized that it said to process the oats! I just put them in whole. Oh well. DSCN1228Let’s just say I had more than 2 but less than 4 I just had another one, make that 4 total…DSCN1229

I need to be responsible this weekend and do adult things like cleaning, food shopping and paying bills. I am actually really looking forward to getting these tasks off my mind! Isn’t it a relief to cross things off your to-do list?

Have a great Friday night/Saturday morning ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. The cookies look amazing!

    I`ve never been much of a steak fan until my most recent ex-boyfriend. He loved it and was a pro at cooking it. But now, I`m pretty much cut down on all meats except seafood. Not really by a conscious choice, just because I`m trying to eat healthier (and cheaper).

  2. what’s the crazy scheme?!

  3. yummy cookies! and crossing things off my to-do list is a highlight of ANY day ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Lol I don’t think anyone would be/could be offended by that joke. I got a kick out of it, and I think it’s great how you and your husband work through a difference like that.

  5. Evan – thanks. I was afraid people would be pissed, but I’m full of jokes is all.

  6. Have a good long run!

  7. That’s so exciting you are running Disney too! We will definitely have to have a big blogger meet up ๐Ÿ˜€


  8. AIn’t nothin wrong with a little steak bribery –works great if you ask me ;)You always have the best looking snackies on here! Love the cookies and the (flat??) chocolate covered pretzel–those are my fave!

  9. Where did you find dark chocolate covered pretzels?! They look fantastic!

  10. I’ve totally been craving that sammie ever since you posted it last time. I need to get on that, but I’m totally out of eggs AND mayo. I think it’s time to go shopping! Haven’t been to MOM’s in a while! =)

  11. Oh, and as far as the steak business…Rick is a meat and potatoes guy too…we do what we gotta do for our men. I don’t cook much meat for him either, but when I do, it’s sensational (and I’m probably bribing him).

  12. lol – thats a cute pic of ben ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Ha! That is so funny. I would have done the same thing. My bf is a steak and potatoes guy but I don’t cook much meat. Steak is definitely a treat in this house!

    Have a good long run!

  14. I do that all the time! I will totally bribe my husband with food and I have no shame about it! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s pretty hard to offend me, so no worries. And even if someone did get offended, Pffftttt to them! They’ll get over themselves. ๐Ÿ˜€
