Ahhh Jillian, now I remember why I love thee so 🙂 in 24 short minutes you make me feel the burn and sweat like there’s no tomorrow! Thank u level 3 shred – you rock my world.
- Ribeye steak in Chop House marinade
- Sweet potato, pineapple & marshmallow ‘casserole’
- Salad w/ blue cheese
First to start up was the sweet taters, which I popped into a 375F oven for about 50 minutes while I worked out – easy peasy (don’t forget to poke some fork holes!) and done when I was!
I was planning on stuffing the taters, however they were cooked so tender that the skin just fell apart so it was time to makeshift! Hey, I’m flexible 😉
I first drained the pineapple and saved the juice.
Then removed the peel from the sweet potatoes and mashed them up, adding a few tablespoons of the reserved pineapple juice for moisture.
Then I spooned half the mixture into a small ramekin and topped with a layer of pineapple (made 2 of these: his and hers)
Then added the remaining sweet potato mash for a top layer
And popped back in the oven for about 10 minutes at 375F to warm through. At that point it was time for the marshmallow! My grandma used large marshies, however we had fluff on hand so that’s how it went down…. note that although it may not be as beautiful it is still as tasty!
Back in the oven at 400F for about 10 minutes til brown on top and voila!
Ya’ll I know it doesn’t look that purty, but please trust me when I tell you this stuff is AMAZING. Grandma’s always know best, and this one never disappoints 🙂
This is probably one of the dishes that remind me of my nanny the most – it holds a truly special place in my ❤ 🙂
Alongside of the sweet potato “casserole” I made this guy – which even though I have never made before, I couldn’t pass up at Kroger the other day (I’m trying to experiment more with meats since The Man really likes them)
I brought out my BFF (ya’ll know what I’m talkin’ bout!) and sizzled this up
Can I please tell you for the 800th time how much I LOVE this cast iron grill, I mean seriously, look at this
Beautiful. Not to mention insanely delicious 😉
Rounded out the meal with a salad, here were the players
- blue cheese
- black pepper
Served up in my nanny’s bowls only seemed fitting (my mom just gave this dish set to us, I love it 🙂 )
The blue cheese was the perfect compliment to the steak, yum!
All together now!
This dinner rocked my socks off 😉 I loved all the flavors and when paired together they were amazing, ahhhh great way to end a Monday if you ask me!
Alright friends, gotta get to some things before Gossip Girl starts! I hope each of you has a wonderful evening 🙂
