Tonight, I've got cube steak. I'm planning on turning it into a sort of chicken fried steak with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes with brocolli. Both of us had two parents who grew up in Oklahoma. His parents ended up in California. Mine in Oregon. But we are Okies at our core, both of us.
I should mention that this meal was inspired by Rocquie at SageTriffle.blogspot.com. I do not know her, but she made a lovely dinner very similar to the one I'm making tonight for her own husband.
It is exactly what he likes, so thanks to Rocquie for the inspiration.
Chicken Fried Cube Steak and Mushroom gravy.
And we have a happy husband. We watch a movie named "Date Night." It seemed appropriate for the occasion, but it was completely stupid. It may make sense if you are from New York, but I've never been there and, for me, the humor was just stupid.
Remember not to skip Date Night.
