The Excellent Adventures of Kim and Kev

Good Eats

This is Kev...

Sometimes he likes to steal hats from the birthday boy.  Especially, when he discovers the hat is something that he has wanted his whole entire life.

Sometimes he likes to hoard things in the attic that he tells me I'm not allowed to throw out.
( We will see about that)

Sometimes he likes to come up with a meal idea without me even asking. 

And those are the best times - because they involve food ( obviously), they require hardly any thought from me, and they ALWAYS turn out amazing!

Last week, I had steak on the menu.  Boring ole steak and sweet potato.

I almost just fell asleep from typing that last sentence.

I had kept it simple because I was working - knew it would be a long day - and didn't have much time that evening to prepare.

And that is when Kev stepped in.  He suggested grilled steak sandwiches.  With peppers and onions and mushrooms and cheese.

I stopped by the store and picked up some hoagie buns from the bakery.

And Kev took over from there.

Oh my goodness... the BEST sandwich I've had in a LONG time.  In fact, we haven't stopped talking about it - and keep coming up with ways to improve it.

Like with avocado or spicy mayo or jalapeno peppers.

We are counting the days until we eat it again...

The other good thing that we had recently was Roasted Veggie Enchiladas by Two Peas & Their Pod.

They were hard to photograph but I'm telling you that they were incredible!!  And filling.  And easy to make.  I decided to use the Ezekiel tortillas instead of the corn because that was what I had on hand.  It made it a little harder to "layer" as the tortillas are huge... but I still felt that I got the overall effect.

And if you are worried that they are meatless and you will miss it - TRUST ME!  You WON'T!

We ate on them for a couple of days and were definitely sad to see them go.
Other than that, we have been super busy and haven't really "created" any thing new.  I've just been making the same ole thing to keep it simple. 

However, starting with this weekend, the next couple of weeks have some pretty good looking meals on the agenda.

Ending with my cousin Carrie's wedding ON THE BEACH!!!

I can't even tell you how excited I am about this wedding!!  It is going to be awesome!

The other thing that is going to be awesome ( but not fun or exciting!) is the reorganization project that I started today in our attic.  It seems that things have gotten a little out of hand over the past 20 years.  And it is time to get it under control.

There is no telling what I'm going to find.

Because so far I have come across a brand new Yoga VHS tape for pregnant women , a large container of Billy Cosby-esque bulky sweaters ( can't believe Kev wore them and won't allow for them to be worn again), and a disco ball.

It's going to be quite the project.
