With the distant hum of lawnmowers in the air, the beginnings of filling up the garden plot, and temperatures so beautiful you want to weep, I felt it only fitting to indulge in steak fajitas on this perfect spring evening.

With rain on the way and the last episode of Dexter Season 4, I’d say Monday night is shaping up to be a nice one. Not to mention the grilled steak salads on our plate. And the clean yoga pants I’m wearing. Grilled Steak Salads: What it took for two famished adults: * 1 pound […]

We had Monday. We had clients. We had sushi for lunch. We had mid afternoon coffees. We had the realization that my boots need the heels capped. We had a husband land safely from a work trip. We had new jeans on. We had a rainstorm. We had a new candle at work that might […]
