Another quick one

It's another LONG and busy week/month/year here in Thathouse. Which means I am SO skimping out on elaborate dinners. Instead we're back to late dinners that can be made super quickly and with very little pots/pans. Although Thatboy totally stepped up tonight and took over the dishes so I could get in a couple more hours of work in. Good times.

This is my ridiculously beyond easy steak that can just as easily be transformed into a ridiculously beyond easy chicken/fish/pork dish. Okay. Everyone pay REALLY good attention:

Italian Steak
1) Wake up in the morning and pour Italian dressing all over steak and quarter bell peppers. Put in fridge.
2) Go to work for a million hours.
3) Come home. Call your husband from the parking lot and ask if he could pretty please carry you from your car to the apartment. When he hangs up, laughing hysterically, think about how much fun putting ice under the covers tomorrow morning is going to be.
4) Take steak out of the fridge and let come to room temperature as you heat your handy dandy grill pan over high heat.
5) Lower heat to medium and toss the steak and peppers on the grill pan. Grill until cooked to desired doneness.
6) Serve with whatever you like. I did some pasta tossed with zucchini.

Any questions?


  1. Hahaha! LOVE this recipe! :)

  2. See, you make it sound so easy . . . but when I actually try it, it'll take me 3 hours and it'll taste crappy.

    Please just come to my place and cook for me. Thanks.

  3. Yum! Quick, easy and favorite combination!

  4. Hey, when the guys do the dishes (for whatever reason), I'm impressed :)

  5. the BEST dinners end with the hub washing dishes.

  6. Ridiculously easy good quick recipes are great to have to mind for those busy days/late nights.

    Good on That Boy for doing dishes... I'm still working on getting my boy to do some!

  7. Ice under the covers... I was seriously laughing out loud! :)

  8. lol you totally crack me up. i wish all recipes were written like that.

  9. I am also in need of some simple recipes lately. I haven't had any time to be in the kitchen. I love how simple and tasty this looks.

  10. I love it. How did Thatboy like the ice the next morning though?
