I wanted to share the lunch I made yesterday because it turned out pretty good. I know, I really need to start taking pictures, so you can see it too.
I used lightlife steak strips for this dish, they are low in calories, but as all premade foods – a little high in sodium. I’m trying to reduce the amount of salt I eat, but sometimes convenience trumps that.
Serves 2 (but can easily be multiplied)
- 1 package steak strips
- 1/2 pepper of any (or assorted) colors in strips
- 1/2 onion in strips
- 2 Tbl vegetarian worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup (or s) Whole Foods 365 Ginger Soy Sauce (if you don’t have a whole foods or feel like making it from scratch I found a recipe here that I want to try.)
Heat a non-stick pan (or a spray or 2 of oil, or in a pinch a little water), once hot add onion strips. Once they start to be translucent, add the peppers and steak strips. Through out this entire process you’ll need to keep stirring so the food doesn’t stick. Once the peppers are about as done as you like them, add the sauces.
Serve over steamed brown rice, or add cooked whole wheat spaghetti to make a lo mein. During the summer I think I’ll try it as a steak salad with raw peppers instead of cooked, and serve it over super crunchy lettuce.

I have the top ribbing done (again), and tonight I will begin the leg – again. But I’m not nearly as bummed out as yesterday. I think my yarn order coming in from eat.sleep.knit certainly put me back in the sock mood.
I was lucky enough to catch the valentine sale at Eat.Sleep.Knit and got 20% off most pink/red/burgundy yarns, plus the 10% ravelry discount (RAVROX). I got Smooshy, Lornas Laces, Supersock and Noelles Noodles. They tucked away a couple of surprises in my package – a cute purple ruler with their logo and a couple of mini tootise pops. I though it was very sweet and the turn around time was super fast. I’ll try to post a picture of my yarn, if I can stop petting it long enough.
Now all I can do is think about trying a new sock pattern with each one of my new beautiful yarns. I have enough sock yarn in my stash to last me all summer. And if I frog every sock as much as the one I’m working on, it may just last me the rest of my life!

Last night I had the whole leg of the sock down and was starting to work on the heel, when I realized I didn’t repeat row one of the leg pattern before I began. I tried to rip it to that point and, of course, messed it up even worse. So I frogged the whole thing – all because I stopped paying attention. Ugh!
It is my and C’s 2 year anniversary, so that makes the day a bit better. I’m taking her out to a surprise dinner at the Melting Pot. They have a vegetarian entree with tofu, artichoke, and portabella. I’m very interested in trying it out, and between cheese and chocolate fondue it must be good. We’re going at 6:30, so I have some sock knitting time before we leave.
Wish me luck on the sock. Third time’s a charm, right?
