You all are probably starting to think that I should change my blog name to Dine and Whine instead of Dine and Dish, aren't you? Have I been crabby the past couple of posts or what? Sorry to bring you all down, but thank you for pulling me back up. The comments on my last post about the restlessness I am feeling really put things into perspective for me. The post struck a chord with many of you and your personal accounts and advice are so appreciated.
I do not have a lot to say today (first time for everything, isn't there?) but I have been holding on to this recipe for so long and keep forgetting to post it. This is a Recipezaar recipe... and was a spur of the moment try for me. We always have a lot of minute steak in our house and finding creative things to do with that type of steak can be difficult. This recipe for The Ultimate Steak Sandwich has to be the best use of minute steak that I have found. If you try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
