Steak Tips and Peppered Mushroom Gravy

Michael lost 5 lbs his first week of working out. That is awesome. I found a new great website that has really been helping me out with healthier dinner ideas. It is myrecipes.com . It is fantastic because it collects recipes from Cooking Light , Health, and Real simple and puts them all in one place so you can find great recipes for whatever requirement you need. I tried this one Yesterday and "MMmmm" was actually said after Michael's first bite. It was a lot simpler to make than I thought especially when you are making the sauce from scratch. It will definitely stay in the rotation even after the dieting is done. Did I mention it is under 350 Calories? Woo Hoo.
