The Weidner Steak Marinade

DING DONG. The doorbell rings. The sun has set. I’m in egg nog-stained yoga pants and my sock bun doth saggeth. Gripping the 14 heart attacks scrambling to escape my chest bone, I walk over to the kitchen window and peek out to see a UPS truck zipping away, leaving me with a gigantic cardboard […]

Mexican Steak Salad

I didn’t intend to post two meatily chunks of meat recipes two days in a row. I guess I’m out of control. Maybe it’s the thing living in my left ear? Am I low on iron? Do I need to see someone about this? Take a vacation? Go back to bed? Watch Dirty Dancing? Whatever […]

Earlier this summer my parents took a vacation via car, making a round-trip excursion through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, then back to their home state of Arkansas. While in New Mexico I constantly bombarded their phones and Facebook pages with frantic, “OMG GET ME CHILES!! NO SERIOUSLY, GET ME SOME CHILES!! DID YOU GET […]

Yesterday after meeting up with an old dear friend for lunch, Aaron and I drove away from the restaurant craving a little summer mid-day treat. As we sat on the slick, white bench inside the beautifully minimal yet modern ice cream shop, I looked at Aaron and asked, “Okay, where do we need to be […]

You’ll have to forgive me as it’s possible that over the next 4 or so weeks, I’ll most likely start every post with, “When we were in Florida on vacation…” Just saying it now. When we were in Florida on vacation, we spent a handful of afternoons in the historic part of downtown St. Augustine, […]

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. Plus it’s the night before we go vegetarian for 7 days, so what idiot wouldn’t […]

Did I Dream That We Ate Steak?

Last night we watched Inception. At least I think we did. I might have been asleep actually. Come to think of it, I had the weirdest dreams about dressing up like Leonardo DiCaprio, and I was hanging out with Ellen Page, and we were on a mountain, in some hotel room, about to crash into […]

Man Food

Yesterday morning Aaron woke up really craving some “man food.” He wanted steak, potatoes and broccoli. “Awesome! Take over!” I told him. I had a baby shower to attend mid-afternoon, so while I was gone he zipped out for the ingredients and had the kitchen to himself last night. Let me rephrase that. He mostly […]

I bring you good news people of the land. As I gaze into the forecastatable future (weather), I see not a single flake of snow. I also see a slight rise in temperatureable air (temperature). What does this mean you ask? For the time being there will be no more white-knuckling drives to and from […]

Stroganoff For the Snowed In

Well hello, Old Man Winter. I see you’ve brought some snow our way. And I hear you’re not done just yet. And that’s fine, but while I have you, would you mind calling Triple A for me in the morning when my lil ole car won’t make it to work? Oh, and would you please […]
