Steak Salad & A Valentine’s Primer


Steak Salad


Today was one of those days…you know the kind ~ where everything you touch seems to crumble.  Washing machine called it quits, I spent the better part of the morning at the Apple Store’s Genius Bar performing CPR on my laptop & I lost my cell-phone.  The Universe was definitely sending me a message that attempting soufflés this evening was probably not the best idea.  The way things were going, turning on the oven could have resulted in a three-alarm fire. I definitely needed to manage & minimize my risks this afternoon.  After picking up the children from school {I managed to get us all home without incident} I made myself a cup of tea, sat down at my recently-revived computer and proceeded to do what any girl in my position would do to make herself feel better…shop.  More window-shopping than anything else…I was in search of Valentine’s Day inspiration.  With only 10 days left until that sweet holiday, I found myself short on ideas.  And in case one or two of you out there may find yourselves in a similar spot, I thought I would share some of my favorite finds {for a full account of my discoveries this afternoon click on my Pinterest follow button in the right side-bar of this page or simply click here}…

As for dinner this evening, well…we enjoyed some of last night’s left-over Beer-Marinated Flank Steak with some mixed greens & a simple oil and vinegar dressing.  I am happy to report that the house is still standing.

On that note, I am ready to say good-bye to this Monday…tomorrow has got to be better, right?
