Damn, that midweek meal. Who has time to cook amazingly delicious meals during the week? Especially during Winter! I mean really, it’s been 12 hours since you left the house, you just spent the last hour sitting in peak hour traffic with people who can’t drive, you come home and you just want to sit down, put your feet up, have a nice cold beer and say hello to your loved ones (as a rule the beer is always first) or is that just me? Perhaps I’ve had enough of winter and I’m longing for the summer days? (Highly unusual as I prefer the cold!). Maybe I’m just missing the summer foods, simple, fresh, fast and full of flavor! Go on name a comfort food that you can knock up in 15 minutes… yeah that’s right there isn’t one… (That one you just thought of doesn’t count…)
I had a light bulb moment the other day, I was walking through the local super market and it hit me… Steak Fajitas is totally doable in winter! Sure I might have paid a little more for capsicum then if I had of bought them two months ago, but I’m not complaining. This meal gave me a small glimmer of hope for the future winters to come and revitalised me for the remainder of the week (especially the next day when I had left overs for lunch… nothing makes a day at work better than a good lunch!)
Ok, yes I know steak fajitas are nothing new, BUT since everyone has their own way of doing things I’m going to ramble on about my way… and yes there is nothing wrong with a good quality store bought tortilla during the week… but if you use them on weekends… tisk tisk…
I’m all out of ideas for awesome mid week meals (like this one) so tell me what you like to eat in the middle of the week…. pretty please? I’m desperate.
