January 13th – Beef Dip

I can’t believe we have made it almost mid-month and last night was our first meal of beef dip.   It is one of my favourites, so we have it relatively frequently.

Dan has been under the weather for a couple of days, so he wasn’t up for too much.  Supper was basic, but totally delicious and the protein seems to have done him some good as he is looking a little better today.

Shaved roast sirloin with onions and horseradish on Villagio buns, served with air fried sliced potatoes, gravy, and au jus.

The only thing I go rogue on is the au jus. We buy Club House Mix but I only use half a package mixed with two cups of salt-less Campbell’s beef broth instead of water. It tastes just as good but is considerably less salty.

After supper, we finished off our individual cartons of Haagen Daz ice cream. Am I the only one who has an overwhelming urge to snack while watching ‘My 600 Pound Life’ ? I love that show, root for each week’s guest star, and am totally happy and inspired by each success story. But every week it is the same thing – I am straight to the ice cream, popcorn, or potato chips. 🤦

The obvious solution would be to quit watching ‘My 600 Pound Life’ but good television is hard to find – especially on Wednesday nights.

I still haven’t found a new winter project. I am torn between cleaning out closets or searching out seed catalogues. Decisions, decisions! Retirement is such a taxing time in one’s life. 🙂

That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day!

  1. Supper looks delicious Anne Marie. I’ve been sifting through closets and basement shelves lately because I have this compelling urge to downsize and de-clutter. It gives me such a feeling of accomplishment. Can’t offer any advice about buying seeds as I only manage to keep alive a few houseplants around here…

  2. Thank you, Geoff. They taste fine to me but they are pretty basic. I am not into gourmet sauces and fruit showing up in wierd places. Actually I am not into fruit showing up anywhere except the occasional pie.

  3. I definitely want to get rid of any number of things stuffed away in boxes and plastic bins. I go through my closets on a semi annual basis so they don’t get too cluttered. I think local nursery catalogues would probably be advisable. I never know what area we live in for plants.

  4. Your food looks and sounds delicious as always, Anne. My closets could sure us a good cleaning, but I have to be in the mood, no decisions on that for me. You will decide when you are ready on what you want to do next. Kat looks adorable and comfy. Stay well and enjoy all you do. Hope Dan is feeling better.
