    Do you ever make egg salad? For some reason I'm craving a nice rich egg salad with onions on wheat toast.

    ^ Egg salad is a frequent lunch time meal in this house Egg or tuna, or sometimes both.

    I like it with sour cream instead of mayo, a bit of horseradish mustard, soy sauce, garlic, lime, and dill relish.

    Today's menu: Filet Mingnon with lo-mein stir-fry and shrimp.

    Marinade the filets, and meanwhile put the oven up to 500F with a dry, clean cast iron skillet inside of it. Turn the stove top onto high heat as well when you plan to remove the skillet. Place hot skillet on the high heat, and then sear the steaks for a minute on each side, turning with tongs, and then put the skillet back into the oven for 3-5 minutes depending on how well done you want them.

    Remove the steaks, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Coat each side with a mixture of panko, seasonings you like, lime juice, and salt.

    Meanwhile, stir-fry up some noodles and veggies you like. Cook shrimp until shrimp is well done, add to the stirfry and coat with soy sauce and seasonings you like, set to the side. Too easy.

    Category: Dessert.

    Chocolate Fudge Bars
    Calories: Probably a shit-load, but smart swaps in the recipe can drop it
    Source: The back of a package

    Total time: 1 hour including prep time

    - Baking/Cooking Spray lining a baking dish
    - 2 cups packed brown sugar (there are different types of brown sugar, which I think are a biiiit better for you)
    - 1 cup butter, softened
    - 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    - 1 large egg
    - 2 packages of Chocolate chip muffin mix (different packages give different calorie counts so finding a lower count one would be a good swap)
    - 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats (same with this get-up here)
    - 1 can sweetened condensed milk (fat-free condensed milk would be a good swap)
    - 1 pack semi-sweet chocolate chips (dark chocolate would be a good swap)

    Heat over to 350 degrees. Beat brown sugar and butter until fluffy, then beat in vanilla and egg. Stirr in muffin mix and oats. Remove one cup of the mixture, and pour the rest into the lined pan.

    Meanwhile, combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a double broiler, and melt chocolate down until smooth. (you can add nuts here if you want but ew..) pour this mixture over the previous one in the dish. Then take a laddle and trickle the rest of the mix over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden-brown, let cook completely before serving.

    Cooked stir-fry tonight. :3 I like to use Fajita meat for stir-fry instead of raw unseasoned chicken. I think it comes out better and without a lot of extra sauces and spices.

    that looks super awesome!! so good.

    what do you mean by "fajita meat"?
    my wife and i (especially me, haha) make lots of fajitas, but we always just use chicken??
    or is 'fajita meat' just chicken with the lime and cilantro and cumin and stuff already added to it?

    ^ Precisely. A lot of shops around here sell pre-marinaded fajita meat, and it's honestly the same price as raw meat, so we usually end up buying pre-seasoned stuff. There's a couple stores that I particularly like the blends..

    yeah, very cool!
    i used to buy meat from a place years ago in Philly, they had some kind of incredible seasoning...
    i never figured out what it was they used. i asked EVERY SINGLE TIME i picked up meat, but the guys would never tell me, haha. it became a real joke between us, i always asked what their secrets were and they NEVER told me.
    sons of bitches!
