Rib Eye Sandwiches

I have noticed lately that I really cook so much differently than I did when our kids were all living at home.  Back then it was hot dishes and lots of them.  Now days we rarely eat a hot dish.  I think our tastes have changed and now that there are just two of us, we have more money and aren’t stretching the food to feed everyone.  Regardless…I love the now style of cooking.

About a month ago I went and grabbed a pack of meat out of the freezer thinking it was steak.  I read the top of the package, it said, “Ribeye Steak” I didn’t think anything of it until I opened the package.  There were very thinly cut slices of steak inside.  UGH.  I looked at the wrapper again and it had “Sandwich” stamped on it too.  Well I wrapped the pack back up and made something else for supper and tried to think of what I would do the following night for supper to use up those “sandwich steaks”.

To some you might be thinking why don’t I know what the meat in my own freezer is…well…Hubby’s boss gives us a lot of meat.  I don’t question it at all.  We are so thankful for what we get and are very happy to get it…we don’t care what cut of meat we are getting we’re just thankful to get it.

Well after thinking I saw we had buns that needed to get used up too so I decided a Philly steak sandwich of sorts would have to do…..

WOW-sa…it was wonderful!!

I warmed some cream cheese in the microwave while steaks, onions and peppers were on the griddle cooking.  I put the buns on the griddle to warm too.  Once the buns were toasted I pulled them off and slathered them in cream cheese…then the steak, onions and peppers went on with cheese…

Oh my…Hubby said do that again!  We both loved them and if there is another package of this cut of meat in the freezer we’ll be having them again for sure.   If there isn’t…I am going to have Hubby ask his boss to have some cut this way again. We loved it!  Honestly of all the hot sandwiches I have had, this one is right on top of the list!!

How do I love thee…let me count the ways!!

On Friday night my son Karl surprised me with a visit.  He was on a road trip with a college friend that took him across the border into Wisconsin, over to one of the best burger places ever in Gunder, Iowa, over to Elkader to the bakery and then to my house.

The part of his trip that I was most interested in was the trip to Elkader.  Any child of mine know a drive through Elkader means a trip to the bakery and a trip to the bakery means a gingerbread cookie for their momma.  I ADORE the gingerbread boy cookies that they make at the bakery there.

Some women love jewelry…some trips….some clothes…Not me.  I’m like my Hubby…I like food.

I like truffles from the Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg…burgers from the bar in town and gingerbread boys from the bakery in Elkader.

I would love to have their recipe.  The cookies are SO-SO thin-less then 1/4″ thick and they are so chewy.  The amount of spice is perfect too.

Does anyone have a recipe for some like this??  Will you share it with me?  I would really love to make some.

So how do I love my son Karl….let me count the ways….1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ,7 gingerbread boy cookies worth!!  What a sweetie I had one to remind me of him for seven days….yep, you guessed right.  I hid them from Hubby and didn’t share.  I also had to be really careful about eating not to many carbs so I could sneak in a cookie.

Thanks Karl…and seriously readers…does anyone have a recipe???
