When Ryan and I were still a relatively new couple, I wanted to surprise him with his favorite home cooked meal one evening. When I asked him about his favorite childhood dinner, he rattled off the following foods:
- Ham steak
- Ramen noodles (with the broth drained, tossed in butter <— He was very specific about this!)
- Fresh strawberries
Easy to please!
Ryan still raves about ham steak and threw one in our cart at the grocery store earlier this week. Last night I cooked it in a skillet with a super-simple glaze of Dijon mustard and brown sugar.
We enjoyed the ham with with roasted cauliflower and broccoli and a sweet potato topped with a bit of butter.
After a friend highly recommended Kerrygold pure Irish butter, I finally bought some last week and must say it is pretty darn fabulous. Just a little bit of the unsalted butter on top of my sweet potato added so much flavor!
Once we were done eating dinner, we took Sadie on a walk around the neighborhood before we parked our butts on the couch and spent some time reading through all of the awesome travel recommendations you guys left on my morning blog post yesterday.
I love that so many of you encouraged us to enjoy a less-structured vacation in Ireland, since that’s what we really hope to do. Though I’m usually a big-time planner, renting a car and exploring sounds absolutely fabulous!
Question of the Morning
- What was your favorite dinner as a child?
I have a few favorites but spaghetti and corned beef and cabbage top my list!
