Well, for vacation this week, my family and I are visiting there, and I can't wait to get some of my old favorites. One of those is a New England steak and cheese sub (not a Philly Cheesesteak). I know when I return, I'll still be craving them, so I went looking for a recipe that might be similar. Luckily, I was able to find one and will have to give it a try. This recipe only makes one sub so be sure to adjust for the number of servings you need. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 2 tablespoons butter • 1/4 medium onion sliced • 4 large fresh mushrooms sliced • 1/4 green bell pepper sliced into long strips • 1 (1/2 pound) well-marbled beef steak of any type, sliced as thinly as possible • 2 slices Provolone cheese • salt and pepper to taste • 1/3 French baguette cut in half lengthwise DIRECTIONS 1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir un- til tender. Push onion to the side of the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook and stir until softened, then add the bell pepper and cook just until ten- der, about 3 minutes. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. 2. Add the remaining butter to the skillet. No need to clean the pan, just let it heat up a little bit. Place the steak in the skillet. Season with salt and pep- per. The steak cooks fast, just a couple of min- utes. Once the steak is mostly browned, return the onion and pepper to the pan. Cook until heat- ed through. 3. Turn off the heat and place the slices of cheese over the top of the pile so they can melt. Mix the melted cheese in with the meat. Scoop the whole pile into the bread.

Great SelectiOn! "It's probably normal. Every child goes through phases likes this. More than likely he'll outgrow it." I was trying to reassure myself there was no reason for concern, but the growing pit in my stomach suggested otherwise. By now I should know that, for me, having a child with special needs of- ten means being at peace with the un- expected. Challenges arise, behav- iors manifest, and at times progress is made without a clear understanding of why or how. For many parents this lack of control is difficult to accept. When my child reached a plateau in progress, I tried to determine how I could hit the play button and "un- pause" where we were. It was time for me to do what I have suggested as a school social worker to many parents, to seek help and support. From my experience, this is what I have found to be helpful: • Friends – Raising a child with special needs can feel isolating at times. There's uncertainty about what others think of your parenting, your child's behavior, and why you may have to cancel at the last minute due to a meltdown. Being honest about the challenges we face as well as what sup- port I need has been helpful. The web- site suggests the follow- ing: "Try to remember that these peo- ple lack the context that we are con- stantly embedded in. Explain, teach, be patient, raise awareness…" Friends want to help and be supportive but may need suggestions about how they can assist. • Accountability Partners – As the parent of a special needs child, I know what I need to do but sometimes need a little push to follow through. Sharing next steps with one or two friends can help. I needed to look into services for my child, but making the call seemed overwhelming and made me feel vulnerable. Sharing these feel- ings with a couple of friends and ask- ing that they follow up with me in a week made it feel more manageable. When asked, being able to say I had completed the first step made me feel accomplished and ready to move to the next step. • Services – Once I decided I need- ed to get an outside perspective, the next step was determining where to seek help. I often refer parents to vari- ous organizations and agencies for ser- vices. If I hadn't experienced this as part of my job, I would have been lost figuring out where to start. If ever in a similar situation, please do not hesi- tate to call a Youth First school social worker at your child's school. Recom- mendations for your specific need can be made; there is no need to guess. • Perspective – Parents want what is best for their children, but every par- ent makes mistakes. sug- gests focusing on what you have done well and moving past the mistakes. Asking for help is not a sign of failure or poor parenting. It's recognizing that some rough patches are rougher than others and require some help to smooth the path. A fter making the in- itial phone call for assistance for my child, I felt relief and a sense of pride. I was giving my child the opportunity to be his best at this stage in his life. I've now been on both sides of this experience as a service provider and a parent. My goal is the same in each role — to reduce stress and increase positive parent/child interaction. Youth First school social workers in area schools are equipped to help you with this goal as well. This column is contributed by Heather Miller, LCSW, school social worker for Youth First, Inc., a local nonprofit ded- icated to strengthening youth and fam- ilies. Youth First provides 39 Master's level social workers to 58 schools in sev- en southwestern Indiana counties. Over 60,000 youth and families per year are served by Youth First's school social work and afterschool programs that prevent substance abuse, promote healthy behav- iors, and maximize student success. "I'm not sure she was too experienced," my mom said of the woman who had led her on horseback for her birthday hike. I asked her why. "Well, her saddle kept sliding to the side of the horse, mak- ing her almost fall off. I had to suggest to her that she tight- en the straps." "This wom- an works at the horse sta- bles? " I asked. "Uh-huh. She didn't even know she could tighten the saddle. Then there was the time that her horse went off trail to sniff something and she couldn't get it back on the trail. We got lost in the woods for about 15 minutes." "Are you sure your guide wasn't really just some tran- sient off the streets who grabbed a horse to run off with? " "That would explain a lot," my mom said, "like that one time when she slid off the side and then could not hoist herself up onto the horse again by herself. Your dad had to get off his horse to give her a lift." "This person sounds terri- ble at her job, Mom." "Yeah. I actually regret- ted not wearing a helmet." My mom's big New York hair does not get stuffed into hats or helmets or headgear of any kind. If she was will- ing to try a hel- met, you know she must not have felt safe. This was seri- ous. In addition to the horseback riding, my mom was given a cer- tificate for fake skydiving for her birthday. Rather than your fall- ing down through the air, in these wind chambers, the wind pushes you up. She had a blast. And it allowed her to knock something off her bucket list. Ever since I went skydiv- ing over 15 years previous- ly, she had wanted to give it a shot, but on more than one occasion, she had can- celed plans at the last min- ute. "What if the skydiver you jump tandem with is simply terrible at her job? " my mom would muse. "Well, then enjoy the view before going splat." Mom never liked that an- swer. My skydiving tandem partner wasn't bad at his job, per se. I didn't go splat. But he was cruel. When he saw how scared I was — ready to vomit out a week's worth of food before we ever left the ground — he made it his mission for the dura- tion of the 20 -minute flight into the sky to tell me every single skydiving horror sto- ry he had ever heard. One was about a jumper who was sucked into the engine. It chopped him up — which caused the plane to go down, so all his friends aboard died, too. It probably wasn't true. In the moment, it defi- nitely didn't matter. I was terrified. I was en- Continued on page 8
