FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHEESESTEAKS

The Gran Prix is tomorrow. We are all a little behind on completing our cars. I did my best to help Chaya, Jonah and some friends sand, paint and assemble their cars. I could really use a nice set of power tools. An orbital sander can only do so much to a block of wood.
Later in the day Josiah had some friends over(see Dalissa's entry today) and I made Cheesesteaks. I spent a better part of the evening discussing what was concidered acting "gay" and what was not. Ahhh, Junior High.
Ooops, I just showed my age.....Middle School.

I love the concentration on their faces as they work on the cars. I looked at the larger view and can even see sawdust in the dark hair. :-)

Yeah, the sawdust. At first I was wondering when I missed the snow.

Those cheesesteaks look professional.

Recipe please? I remember my one business trip to Philadelphia, 25 years ago, when I first tasted a "Philly Cheese Steak". Oh My.

"Gay" used to mean a happy person back when I was growing up. ;-)

Susan.... It's very easy if the stores around you have frozen sandwich steaks. I have lived in this area my whole life, I am under the understanding that things like this might not exist outside of the Philadelphia area. Break steaks into pieces, grill while also grilling slices of onion (with a little oil). I usually add a little salt and pepper, and maybe a little garlic. when meat is browned, and onions are how youlike them, you can combine them, I don't because my kids cringe when onions are added...even though they actually like the taste of onions, they cannot see them. Melt sliced cheese over the meat. I use chedder, although this is not an authentic "philly" ingredient (it is actually pretty hard to find good chedder cheese in this area). If you want to be authintic, cheese wiz from a can would be the way to go. I like to warm the rolls (Amoroso steak rolls are preferred...I just used Giant club rolls) on top of the excess "juices" created by the meat. Not the healthiest of sandwiches, huh? put meat/cheese on roll, and add Ketchup. Eat, then check you cholesterol.

Thanks for the recipe! I actually found the frozen steak, sliced thin, at our grocery store and wondered if that was what you used! I'm going to make these and then walk for 30 minutes on my treadmill.
