Sweet kids, sunglasses and steak.

My girls were feeling very princessey today, they got their dresses on and were playing all kinds of princess make believe.

Jericho featured in many stories, as all kinds of different characters....this one was some sort of little troll I think LOL.

Ah come on Haddie, don't look so pouty.
That is more like it :)

Making tonights dinner dinner got comical. Jason heard somewhere that is you wear eye protection when you cut up an onion it helps. So far he is not buying it...maybe he needs to try it with glasses in his size?
Dinner was so good, one of Jason's faves so far...figures, it features steak. Another skinny hit! Quick skillet steak with veggies.

1/2 lb thin cut beef round sandwich steaks
1/2 large onion, sliced into rings
1/2 tsp olive oil
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 sliced red bell pepper
4 seconds cooking spray
garlic powder to taste
salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Have all your veggies sliced and ready, this goes fast.
Slice beef into thin strips. Season with salt, garlic powder and fresh pepper to taste.
Heat a large skillet over high heat. When the skillet is very hot, spray with cooking spray and add half of the beef. Cook one minute, then turn steak and cook an additional 30 seconds.
Set aside in a large dish. Spray the skillet again and when it gets hot add the remaining steak, cooking one minute, then turning and cooking 30 seconds more. Add remaining steak to the dish.
Return skillet to heat and spray once again with cooking spray; add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook one minute, then turn and cook onions an additional 30 seconds or until onions are golden. Lower heat to medium and add 1/2 tsp olive oil to the skillet, add mushrooms, bell peppers, salt and pepper and lightly spray the top of the mushrooms with cooking spray.
Cook 1 1/2 minutes, then turn mushrooms and cook another minute and a half. Add to dish with steak and onions and stir to combine. Serve over rice.
We added a dollup of fat free refried beans and fat free sour cream...Mmmm!
These would make great fajita's or a steak and cheese sandwich too.
1/4th of the dish of steak and veggies is 95 calories and 4 grams of fat (beans, sour cream, cheese anything else you add is extra.)
