Last Minute

I hate waiting til the last minute. I need to plan, to prepare. But not tonight!

I had nothing on the menu, but lots of leftovers in the fridge. The doc doesn't do leftovers, this eliminates plenty of my options. Luckily, almost everything is good in a taco! A new, reinvented taco. AND I had just the right ingredients to make pico de gallo! It was perfect. That's all I'm eating tomorrow!!!

Pico de Gallo

1. Chop tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and fresh jalapenos.
2. Toss in bowl, sprinkle with S&P, drizzle with lime juice.
3. Enjoy it on EVERYTHING!

My Dinner Rocked!

I made the best steak ever! (I totally copied The Pioneer Woman! I think she's my kindred spirit!)

I marinated a flank steak in a concoction of teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic and ginger, a few spoonfuls of brown sugar, and a pinch of crushed red pepper. It was delicious! I wanted to lick my plate clean!

THEN Irving brought over THE BEST potatoes au gratin. I tell ya, I couldn't decide which one I liked better, but I definitely overstuffed myself trying to decide! The spinach salad on the side simply faded in comparison.

Have I ever mentioned that I love food???
