What are you eating Wednesday 12/6/2017?

My plan is making yesterdays postponed dinner - stovetop grilled marinated flank steak (EVOO, soy sauce, fresh garlic, smoked salt and spices), potatoes and tomato and onion salad.

I use a similar marinade for steak tips, but add a bit of balsamic vinegar (about 1/3 as much soy sauce). It gives it a nice flavor.

Tonight is shrimp and corn gumbo, rosemary and olive oil dutch oven bread, garden salad.

I'll try that. Thanks. How long do you marinate for? Last time I only did about 20-25 minutes and it was so good!

Taco Wednesday here in the middle of the desert

Ground Beef spiced with my homemade Taco Seasoning (heh! you've got all of those spices in your pantry, why not make up your own?!)
I'll make the meat a bit saucy with some flour toasted in the pan with the meat once it's browned off and some Dark Beer (oops, I guess I'll need to drink the rest of that bottle than, eh? )
And then I just chop up a bunch of stuff for toppings and then it's build your own Taco Bar.
I use heated Flour Tortillas rather than Corn. We have a local Tortilla facotry just up the road a piece

I make our taco seasoning too. Everyone thinks it's great. I tried Penzeys taco seasoning and none of us liked it.

Y'know Andy, for years, I bought Mass Market Spice blends and only that.
Then I started to cook more and bought all of these herbs and spices and a light bulb went off over my head!

Recently I ordered one of the very best sandwiches I've ever eaten and good ole Chef John told me how to make it.
As luck would have it, we have a brand new little Vietnamese restaurant in this mostly Mexican food town, and we're going there tonight to order Banh Mi sandwiches and any other tempting delights.

Doing this through Saturday so, I won't be cooking..

Good stuff...
