Steak and Ice Cream and English Peas

Hey, everybody....

I haven't been able to visit with ya'll very much.
We are doing some painting at the old house and a little at the new place.
I find I am running out of time....and energy.

By the time we put away our paints and brushes and rollers
and get "cleaned up", I am in NO MOOD for blogging....just ready for bed.

Mr. Sweet, bless his olden heart, grilled us a T-BONE STEAK last night with
grilled onions and peppers.

I made an ENGLISH PEA SALAD that is one of our very favorites....
and garlic toast.

English peas, drained
chopped onion and cheese
REDSKIN peanuts.

A spoonful or two of your favorite mayo...
ours is HELMANS.

Toss, chill and serve it up.

I must say it sure tasted good with that steak. !!

To top our great meal off.....


  Yes sir ree bob....
                                        We keep a CLOSE eye on DESSERT.
XOXO, bj

OOO....and P.S.
 speaking of STRIPES.......

I can't remember who this belongs to but I WISH it belonged to me.
Home Sweet Home

That pea salad does look good! I've eaten it before, but not for a long, long time. I don't dare eat the ice cream or I'd be crashed on the couch within 20 minutes. :-)

Hope you have a nice evening.

Oh BJ what a yummy dinner! Thanks for sharing!
Good luck with the move. I can't wait to see pics of the new place!

Barbara F. said...

Your dinner sounds so good. I have to try that pea salad. Resting is good, BJ, when you are going all day long! xo

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You are one hard worker and that pea salad looks good. I have never heard of that before.

Sue said...

I know the feeling of tiredness due to painting, as it seemed that was how I spent last summer and fall.
My Mr P is the steak griller around here, our menu this evening was very similar to your last night dinner, steak, english peas and salad, but no dessert tonight as I have not been a good girl lately when it comes to sweets, so I am settling for sweet coffee tonight, and drooling over your cookies and ice cream.
Please don't over due it,

Ricki Treleaven said...

BJ, I know you're worn out! Painting is hard work. I want to try the English Pea salad. It looks so delish!

Get some rest!


Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Peanuts? That is a surprise.

Vee said...

Thank you for the info on the pea salad. That looks as if it is something that we would enjoy.

Vee said...

Don't work too hard...

Just saw you over on a comment where there was a rock fireplace, now where was I? Vintage on a Dime. Between her decor and your meal...what a day! Yum, your dinner looks great. I'm still wondering about your having moved. Guess I need to browse more on your blog?
Would love to have you stop by and say hey - I'm posting w/Liz TTT for a change.
Great to see ya! Jenn

Lady Jane said...

You are so funny BJ. I wish that sofa belonged to me too, lol... That is a great pea salad I must try... with helsman of course... And the best is always last, that desert looks great...

Unknown said...

Wow, you did good with this meal...and after all that work! I know the new place will speak to us and have bj written all over it! Take care my friend and get some much needed rest...Mr Sweet too!

Jackie said...

BJ that meal looks absolute scrumptious!!!

Hope you post pictures of your move.

God bless.

Gert said...

BJ that meal looked so yummy! I love the pea salad..just never heard of adding those peanuts! Interesting! 😉

Be sure to rest and not over do!


Shelia said...

Hi BJness! Oh, I know you must be so busy getting everything together. Mr. Sweets is a great guy making you dinner. I love pea salad but have never had it with peanuts and that sounds so good.
Dessert! Yummy!
Take care and don't won't too hard.
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Ooooh, love that couch (and the deep porch it must be sitting on!) Grilled steak, it's supposed to get up to 45 degrees next week, sounds like a great time to grill! Don't overtax yourself, and don't worry about blogging. There are only so many hours in a day, we'll all still be here!

Madeline's Album said...

Your dinner sounds great. Take time to rest once in awhile. Painting is quite a chore. Take care and have a blessed evening. Madeline

Bless you little "pea pickin' heart"!!!
Painting is quite a chore!!!
So glad "Mr. Sweet" was in the mood for grilling while you were mixing up the salad!!!
"Sharing the load lightens the burden" Grandmother said that all the time!!!
Take care of yourselves, pace yourselves and take breaks!!!

Beth said...

The pea salad sounds delicious! And so does the dessert. I keep my eye on dessert too! :-)

NanaDiana said...

Oh- that sounds good and I hope you don't overdo it and get too tired. We don't need you sick!!! Are those peas canned? I have never had that salad- xo Diana

Linda said...

God speed on your painting! All the blogs will be here when you get done!
Can't WAIT to see all you are accomplishing......

Stacey said...

Mmmmm, supper looks good. I love pea salad but haven't ever put peanuts in it. We put Hellman's, boiled eggs, a little pickle relish, and shredded cheddar. Yummo!

Pondside said...

That supper sure looks delicious.....and the dessert, well, it looks like something we'd both love!

Maureen Wyatt said...

That's a pretty fancy meal for people who are as busy as you are right now. I think I'd have been tired just making a sandwich!

doodles n daydreams said...

I like the sound of that salad, I think I'll try it next time we're barbecuing.


Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

It's hot and I had a big serving of icecream. yours looks like my hokey pokey icecream, thanks for visiting.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Never heard of English Pea Salad, so I wrote it down. :-)

Hubbies of our generation, are super at steping-up-to-the-plate, when needed! :-)

Pace yourself. Don't get too tired. 'Auntie' sezzzzzz... :-)


Theresa said...

Looks yummy to me! AHHH a fresh coat of paint is so wonderful, a clean slate:) LOVE that striped sofa! Enjoy your day, hope you get a little rest! HUGS!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Everything you serve looks fantastically good! PH and I went through what you are going through four years ago and I never want to do it again. My son in law did all our painting and it was the entire inside of the house including the ceilings. I hope you two are not up to anything like that! Of course you ARE a year younger than I am...heehee! :)
I think it would kill me today!

I agree with Auntie (above) PLEASE pace yourselves carefully. Lately I have been feeling my age a great deal.
Sending hugs..and yes, one to Mr. Sweet too! :)

Your salad looks so good! Take a break every now and then! Can't wait to see your new place!
