Marinated Steak with Caramelized Onions

This week has been a whirlwind.  I’ve had 4 interviews for one job position in 4 days.  Whew!  Yes, after a year home with my wonderful boys, I’m making my best effort to get back into the work force.  Life changes and needs must have.  So back to a double-budget household it is.  

I don’t find out until Monday if I got the job for sure, but it’s so weird to think about being away from my babies 8 hours a day.  *sigh*  I waited tables while I was pregnant with Thing 2 and Mike stayed home with Thing 1 in the evenings, but I was rarely gone more then 5 hours.  Okay.  Sorry for the pity party.  It had to happen sometime.  At least I’ll be able to leave the Things  grandparents instead of day care when our work shifts over lap.
On a happy note, these onions are scrumdiddilyumptious.  Throw them on a good steak and a pile of fluffy mashed potatoes and all your cares will go away.  And have a glass of wine.  That helps too.

    Hello, I found you on the Linky Follower Blog Hop and now follow you. I would love for you to follow Hibiscus House back. I like your blog very much.
    I hope the work thing goes ok for you. I know it is a hard decision. Glad you have grandparents to help. That is the best in any situation with your babies.

    I got the job offer yesterday! It sounds like my preferred schedule is the opposite of everyone else, so I should be able to go into work within and hour of two of Mike getting off work. Score!

    I'm slowly but surely going through all the blogs on the Blog Hop. I will be over to your blog soon, promise. Thanks so much for stopping over. 🙂

    Thanks for the pin Kelley! If you find yourself without A-1 sauce, or you were around it while working at a steak house for too many years like me, Worcestershire sauce is a good substitute.
