What I’m Cooking This Week

So sad to that my long weekend is over but at least it’s a short work week!  On Friday we went out to a steakhouse by our old apartment that we had yet to try and were sad we waited so long to go!  Pretty sure Jeremy is still having dreams about his filet and béarnaise sauce.  The rest of the weekend was spent inside as we had a tiny snow ‘storm’ if you can even call it that and then temps dropped like crazy so we spent many many hours on the couch.  I’m pretty sure the impression of my body is still there.  Now, after a long weekend of indulging, two of our favorites are on the menu for this week!


1. Steak Fajitas

First up is steak fajitas which I think may be Jeremys favorite meal that I cook.  My mom actually gifted us a small cast iron fajita pan with wooden trivet and it’s the MVP of this meal.


skirt steak

3 peppers (I usually use a mix of red and orange)

1 white onion

fajita seasoning (I throw a ton of spices together and never measure it out but here is a recipe that includes all the spices I always use)

Corn or flour tortillas

Optional toppings: avocado, sour cream, salsa


Slice steak in 1/4 inch pieces

Slice all peppers & the white onion

Heat 1 tbsp oil in cast iron pan over medium heat

Coat each piece of sliced skirt steak in fajita seasoning and add to the pan

Cook about 6-7 minutes until all steak is fully cooked

Add in pepper and onion and stir until they are tender

Serve mixture in warm tortillas and add any toppings of your choice!

Pretty much the easiest dinner and always delicious.  We actually make these into ‘fajita bowls’ and skip the tortillas but serve it over brown rice- more like a fajita-less fajita.


2.  Lemon & Dill Chicken

Another really simple recipe!  I’ve tried this with dried dill weed and I must say the the fresh dill really makes a difference!  I’ll typically make this with a side of cous cous and a vegetable- usually some roasted brussel sprouts or broccoli.


Another soup might be in order for next week if the temperatures stay this low! Let me know if you have any favorite soup recipes!
