Steak Rub

We are on day 3 of no school because of the weather here in Dallas. Most people are probably getting cabin fever by now. I, on the other hand, am finally getting a day to relax. A couple weeks ago, we found out that my boyfriend, Stephen's mom has the early stages of breast cancer. She had surgery on Tuesday morning and then was released from the hospital yesterday. The surgery went really well and she seems to be having a good recovery.

Though it has been a rough couple of days, it has been nice to spend a lot of extra time with Stephen. This was a quick dinner I made for him last night. Stephen really liked the seasoning on the steak. And he definitely appreciated that I topped the potatoes with cheese and made a gravy.

  1. So sorry to hear about Stephen's mom. She is in my prayers. It's crazy how life can change so dramatically in such a short time. I hope the snow days are providing both you and Stephen some rest.

  2. Leah, my thoughts are with you, Stephen and his family at this time. My hope is that she continues to have a good recovery.
