Steak Salad


  • Thinly sliced steak
  • Romaine lettuce
  • French fries
  • Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • Ranch dressing

Marinate your steak (your choice of marinade) for a few hours. Cook fries according to the directions. Broil or grill your steak and then slice into thin fajita sized strips. On a plate or wide bowl place lettuce, steak, fries, and top with shredded cheese. Serve with ranch dressing. I will try to get a picture up after dinner tonight.

Crock pot Sloppy Joes


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, and onion. Drain off the fat. In a crock pot add beef mixture, garlic, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar and mix. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serves 8 w/ leftovers.
