Simple Sunday..Steak And Taters- With A Snickers Bar!


We rassled and hassled with a Sunday dinner idea, and ended up with a simple meal of NY strip steaks and roasted potatoes, seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary.. everything came out great, as a simple meal is hard to screw up! I planned to make cookies, only to find I had 10 pounds of sugar, and was out of flour! They ought to color code the damn bags or something..I thought I had 5 lbs. of each...Anywho..my wife had to go out and pick up some paperwork, so she stopped by a store and got us both a Snickers candy bar! Cravings are a hard thing to explain, but I sure did eat the heck out of one! Life can be short, and hard..while you are here, and a candy bar can cheer you up- don't cha think you ought to have one?
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I can't remember the last time I ate a whole candy bar. Whee! Good for you!

Besides those little bite-sized candy bars at Halloween, I bet I haven't purchased or eaten a candy bar in over 25 years. If I were to buy and eat a candy bar it would be a snickers. Love all of that chocolaty/carmely stuff going on. Now, with all of that said, you can't keep me out of the Dots.

Gloria said...

I love candy bar! I sent you a mail! tell me if you received. gloria

Heff said...

Good meal.

I've actually got a Snickers bar waiting on me RIGHT NOW.

Brian Miller said...

Vickie said...

I love steak and rosemary potatoes! Nice menu, BD!

Always keep a snickers in the freezer. By the time it thaws enough to eat it, you can either talk yourself out of eating it or by then you know you can't fight the cravings!

Does make me wonder though, didn;t the store sell flour as well as snickers???

G-Man said...

Arrrrrrrgh...

No Flour? You could have deep fried that Snickers!!!

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Nice and simple meal! I bought myself a 3 Musketeers bar yesterday. I ate it without guilt. I've lost 5 lbs since January.

Anywho, hope you have a great week!

Marjie said...

Damn you, Buff! Now I want a Snickers bar, and I can't go out for it! Damnit!!!!

buffalodick said...

Marjie- First time we've done that since Halloween!

carma said...

Everybody deserves some chocolate daily-- those brownies from Trader Joe's hit the spot :D

buffalodick said...

carma- Odd for us, but really hit the spot!

The Blonde Duck said...

Steak...potatoes...snickers...what could be better?

buffalodick said...

BlondeD- Worked for us!

Realliveman said...

I with I would have taken pictures of what I cooked this weekend. You would have been proud of me!!

buffalodick said...

So do it! I think you have great potential as a cook!

Chris said...

I haven't had a snickers in forever and now you are killing me. I want one.

Nice looking steak too....I had a salad for dinner. Sigh.

Christiejolu said...

That looks so delicious!

I find not holding back from treats works better for me. If I am in the mood for an Oreo I eat it. If I try to hold back when I finally crack, and I always do, I will eat the whole bag.

You have a nice week too!

KB said...

Snickers - gimme!

tamilyn said...

Simple meals-always the best!

Eternally Distracted said...

I'm not into snickers but the meal looks scrumptious!

Barbara said...

I screwed up making a cake once with salt in place of sugar. They were in identical containers. I was young and never thought to check. It was an interesting cake.

Candy bars? No. M&M peanuts? OK.

buffalodick said...

Chris- Wife is doing a dental update, so it's soup tonight..sigh..
Christie- Wife ate one, came in and asked me if I wanted another one 3 minutes later- because she did!
KB- I love anything with caramel!
Tam- Simple, good ingredients are the key to successful meals!
E.D.- I'm not a sweet tooth, but once in a while..
Barb- Ever had Passover pizza? It's where you forget the yeast...Yes, I did that once!

blueviolet said...

Well, I'm not sure about the Snickers but I wouldn't mind a Milky Way, Twix, or 100 Grand!

Gonna make a steak tonight for my son. It's not my specialty so I hope it turns out ok.

buffalodick said...

Blue V- Cook it hot and short, with seasonings- and you can't miss!
P.S.- I'm so old, I remember when 100 grand came out- love them!

doggybloggy said...

that is too funny - snickers and milky way (my favorite) have been on sale lately too....

tattytiara said...

I've been craving a Caramilk bar for over a week now. Definitely time to give in.

MarmiteToasty said...

scoffing down a snickers bar, mars bar, turkish delight bar, flake, twix, fruit and nut bar, boost, kit-kat.... there that ought to keep me going in life for a bit :)

(((Buff)))) love ya matie......

Heff said...

buffalodick said...

DogB- Out of five, my wife got 3-1/2..
T.T.- That is a new one on me! I bet I'd like it, though..
Marmy- Good to see you are still kicking!
Heff- Been screwing around with my Internet provider 1/2 the day..

Just telling it like it is said...

Absolutely!!

buffalodick said...

Darngirl- Glad you agree!

Chef E said...

Not sure why but at first glance the taters looked like corn...I am ready for summer and corn, yes, summer corn!

I will take a plate of this too!

UBERMOUTH said...

How did you cook the taters? Roasted or fried? Deep fried or pan fried?

buffalodick said...

Chef and Uber- roasted, and flipped a couple of times...killer texture and flavor!
