Monday night dinner...

I had a craving for red meat, so I picked up some Top Sirloin fillets from Trader Joe's. Trader's meat is really good and fairly inexpensive, I got 3 medium sized fillets for $10. I cook my meat in a skillet with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. I wanted a more healthy side dish, so I made wheat couscous, also found at TJ's, with spinach and roasted sugar plum tomatoes. I cooked the spinach in a pan with a little olive oil and a clove of garlic; spinach takes but a couple minutes to cook. To roast the tomatoes I sprinkle them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a couple cloves of garlic, roast in the oven at 400 degrees for about 6-8 min. The dish was flavorful and healthy!
