Sunday supper this week was a marinated, London broil that we grilled out. Sides included: boiled, Red Bliss potatoes with butter and no salt, garlic-herb seasoning
Steamed cauliflower with no salt, all purpose seasoning
Cabbage, multi colored peppers and onions fried in reserved bacon fat, seasoned with black pepper, parsley. Other than a bit of steak, there were no leftovers, including the dessert I made below. DS#1 and GF joined us.
Here are the bulk of ingredients used to try a new recipe: Caramel apple coffee cake The inspiration was the dregs of a container of sour cream that needed to be used up (not pictured) and the lurking jar of caramel dessert sauce.
The finished cake. I liked that I was able to bake it off in my counter top, convection oven. Nice and moist, will definately make this again. One adaptation I made was to add some Penzey's baking spice to the streusel topping; I found it strange that the recipe didn't call for any spices there. I also substituted solid shortening (trying to use it up) in place of butter for the actual cake batter. Butter was used for the streusel topping.
