I didn't want to go to my sister's house for Easter dinner and stayed home with a ham steak and had a delicious sandwich of it. (my sister and her husband came over for a visit around 10:30 am on Easter morning for a holiday visit!) she emailed me late Easter night saying she forgot to ask me if I like filet mignon as she bought three, two for her and her husband and one for me (my nephew won't eat anything that he describes as having had a face at one time. in other words vegetarian .before he realized meat was alive he just didn't like the taste of meat' I have not had a steak of any kind since mommy died five years ago on April 13 th of this year so my sister brought me my first filet mignon in those five years. my sister said she will get me one and make it for me the next time she buys them! , my sister cooks her differently than mommy( mommy and i had them once a month for a treat) she did it at her house but she cooks it differently than mommy. she told me she fried it on the stovetop five minutes on each side. then puts them in the oven for 8 minutes on both sides. she kept them in longer as one was so thick it was too rare to eat .. mommy fried hers but I don't know how long. Probably longer than five minutes as she didn't put in the oven but i am sure she cooked it longer as she was petrified of not cooking whatver meat she was cooking enough as she didn't give us food poisoning. mine was divine! i ate the whole thing in one sitting! I could not eat the slice of cheesecake that i bought at the grocery store before dinner! I am having chicken fingers tonight that my sister brought me too! i don't think she made them. i don't know where she got them as they were both in the same type of plastic container. she says i can keep both of the containers! which thrilled me as I love things like that for the kitchen! what did you have for dinner last night?

I almost went to taco bell for the rest of the week yesterday as my doctor's office has a Taco Bell in the parking lot that is new! we watched them build it for years! I asked the receptionists what took them so long while they were building it and at one time they lost the contract and stopped building mid-way. it opened last December! i bought too many groceries so didn't think I would have room in the refrigerator for tacos! i have just enough room for groceries!

@DocAndersen my fridge is always full as I have a bad habit of buying one of everything when I grocery shop! how often do you shop? i was going to Walmart and having it delivered once every two weeks but decided since the weather is improving I will take uber grocery shopping

Mmm I'm so glad you enjoyed the Filet Mignon. I had Arby's last night for dinner and today it will be the chicken on pita, no pita, very very soft chips (my cheat), ranch and tzaziki.

@Marty1 we get the coupons in the mail too. We usually have arby's twice a week. I wish my family would let me cook more, but they don't want me to cook more. They like getting fast food. Yes, it is salad dressing, but it's thin and made in the restaurant. It's delicious and I use it to dip my chips in them.

@Marty1 All that sounds yummy. I only eat chips from this restaurant. We've been ordering from them twice a week now, and it's the only cheat I allow myself.

@ScribbledAdNauseum with how well you do with eating keto, you are allowed to have cheats! it may not actually be considered cheats as they aren't all you eat that day is it?

ooh cheeseburgers! I don't make cheeseburgers as they wait until they hit the pan to fall apart I don't really cook like that. I only make boxed macaroni and cheese, scrambled eggs and hot dogs, and chicken casserole with chicken I buy cooked. I only cook the noodles for the chicken casserole and heat it in portions in the microwave instead of heating in the oven every other thing I eat comes cooked from the grocery store cooked and ready to heat in the microwave
