Rock Star

So on New Year's eve, we were at my aunt and uncles party having a good time with all of the cousins and our friends playing Rock Band 2... If you have never had the chance to play it is an absolute blast, and you need to take your first opportunity you have to go out and embarrass yourself in front of everyone. Kinda' like karaoke on

Anyway, we were all enjoying playing around when Iain noticed that what we were doing looked more fun that playing with blocks and cars, so over he came, and completely took the drumsticks away from me to "Rock Out" like a big boy... Can we just say that we ALL "Partied like we were Rock Stars!!"...LOL!

Yummy Philly Cheesesteak!

Okay... so while we were visiting home, David made the most awesome Philly cheesesteak I have eaten in quite a while... I was truly skeptical at first, but as I took a bite I realized my previous feelings about cream cheese on a sandwich were mistaken. This is GREAT for a small party or bible study group. Enjoy.

Here is the recipe as best as I can recall.

Walmart (Great Value) "steak-ums"
1 package of provolone slices
1 package of cream cheese
4 TBS fresh minced garlic
1 tsp. powdered red pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1 small onion cut into strips
1 small green pepper cut into strips
1 Large french bread loaf

In a large skillet fry together the frozen steak, onions and peppers cut into strips until the steak is well browned (and grease is mostly cooked away) and the onions are carmelized.

Set oven to Broil

Using a medium bowl mix together cream cheese, red and black pepper, and fresh garlic.

Cut french bread in half leaving it connected in middle, and spread the cream cheese mixture over both sides of the bread. spread the meat mixture on the bread and cover with cheese slices.

place the baking sheet low in the oven and broil until cheese begins to brown...

fold sandwich over, cut into smaller sandwiches and serve.
