Yummy Eats

So every week our son comes over to do laundry, and every week we try to prepare something special for lunch. This week we made up some Philly Cheese Steak. This particular sandwich has hard salami in it. My husband called it The Big Red Cheese Steak. Me personally, I would of liked a little more cheese. Overall, I liked. The kids liked it too.

Some other food that was cooked over this past weekend was lobster rolls (using imitation crab meat..still good), some banana coconut bars, cucumber salad, and banana nut bread.

The banana bars recipe came out of Betty Crocker Cookie Book. I substituted butter for the shortening and added about 2 cups of coconut. Topped the bars off with frosting and toasted coconut.
I made banana date bread using the banana nut bread recipe out of the Food Network Magazine. More specifically, out of the 50 Quick Bread insert found in the October 2014 issue.  I had used dates instead of nuts because my grand daughter was helping me make it, and she is allergic to nuts.

The lobster rolls and cucumber salad recipes came out the current issue of Food Network Magazine. I made these for dinner yesterday and forgot to take photos. I still have left- overs, so these still could be pictures to come.

So overall, a tasty weekend of food.


  1. I wish I have some talent in the kitchen.

  2. Looks like you've really been cooking up a storm at your home. I love Philly Cheese Steak. I don't get it much and I've yet to try and make it.

  3. Yummm. I've got dates and bananas. You've inspired me to make banana date bread the first day it's not too hot for baking. Maybe I should go hide the dates now.
