Because we are in the home stretch of the home renovation. And I needed to be back at the house early today.
Because if I thought raising a child was hard, babysitting contractors all summer has proved even harder.
The good news is we’re almost done. If you believe their estimates, it will be done this week.
Not holding my breath, but hoping for the best.
Meanwhile, this morning we slept a little late and didn’t have a lot of time to pack up.
So I just tossed together whatever was ready to go. That meant already cut watermelon, a snickerdoodle cookie and leftovers from last night’s dinner — a teriyaki-like steak and pasta dish.
It was just a way to use up some leftover grilled flank steak. I sliced it thin, then heated some sesame oil in a skillet. I added the steak and got it just hot. Then I added soy sauce, Sriracha, lime juice and a bit of agave. Once it was simmering, I added some cornstarch (mixed with cool water). About a minute later it was done. Then I added the udon noodles I boiled up in the meantime, tossed it well and call it delicious.
Hoping Parker thinks the leftovers served as a cold noodle salad are just as good as they were warm last night.
