Fabulous Flank Steak

I've been requested to post numerous recipes to here's the first of a few. The most simple crowd pleasing flank steak ever.

Flank Steak: (Difficulty-Easy)


Flank steak

Unseasoned Meat Tenderizer

Teriyaki sauce

Dark Brown Sugar

McCormicks 25% Less Sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning

Place the flank steak in a shallow dish. Sprinkle lightly with meat tenderizer like you would use salt. Cover with teriyaki sauce and let marinade up to 24 hrs. Sprinkle lightly with McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning just prior to grilling. Grill for approximately 2 minutes per side over high heat. Move over to medium heat on another side of the grill and go another 3-5 min per side to medium rare. Sprinkle liberally with dark brown sugar.

Let it rest for 5 minutes covered with foil then slice thinly against the grain.

Daddy's Little Girl

Rob got Etta this little outriggers shirt in Hawaii and she loves it. Or maybe we just love it. Either way it is super cute.

Now, Etta is a very cautious little girl so I would've thought skateboarding and scooter rides would scare her to death but we've come to find out that she has some adventure in her after all. She is a little speed demon!

The whole time you could hear her around the block...weeeeeeeee, fast, fast, weeeeeeeee! Again, again!

What it comes down to is that anything with Dad is her favorite no matter how terrifying...she's a daddy's girl!

Branch Parties

We had a couple fun branch parties for Easter and Cinco de Mayo. We absolutely love our branch and feel so blessed to be surrounded by such fun, loving people. Everyone's at the same stage in life and we all live so close that we've really made some great friends.

Towards the end of the candy hunt Etta started to understand the whole putting things in the basket and you'll get it later thing...but you can still see a little tear in her eye. :)

The whole fam.
