I am so pathetic when it comes to making decisions. This year for our anniversary the only thing I wanted from Eric was to not have to make any decisions about what to do for our anniversary. Romantic, I know.
We are still house hunting. It’s easy to drag your feet when you are staying with family, especially family as awesome as mine. For every new place that we look at, we have this conversation afterward: “So what did you think?” “It was okay. I could live there I guess.” And then we go home and that’s all. My sister-in-law Sandi keeps telling us that “we’ll just know” but I’m not so sure. I’m guessing that we will stay here until they start dropping hints that we need to beat it, then play rock paper scissors on the next house we look at. If he wins, we take it, if I win, we don’t.
Playing rock paper scissors is how we make a lot of decisions actually, especially for things like Milkshakes vs Smoothies, Romantic Comedy vs Artsy Foreign Film, or Should We Go To Grad School or Not. Works like a charm.
I felt like a pansy for posting 2 meatless recipes in a row so I thought I would make up for it by offering you some steak:
Doesn’t it look delicious? It was. We had friends in town, and since steak doesn’t grow on trees (I wish) we decided to feed all the
screaming banshees kiddos mac n cheese while we had the good stuff. I figured they wouldn’t mind since these are some of the pickiest kids on the planet (they don’t like pancakes. PANCAKES.) But once they found out we were having “cow meat” as they call it, we had to swat them away like flies. It’s like they can tell the difference between steak and dyed orange starch. I don’t get it.
If you thought steak was good, try adding chimichurri sauce. Have you been introduced to this stuff?
I’ve been putting the leftovers on everything. Eggs, sandwiches, dipping chips in it. It’s all kinds of amazing. I always secretly thought parsley was kind of useless. I’ve fully repented to the herb gods. You can serve these as appetizers or add some sides and make a meal out of it. Don’t skip the baguette toasts though, they add a nice little crunch that will make you want to eat a dozen or so.
