What's For Dinner Wednesday~

Hi Everyone.  Sorry for being MIA.  I had great intentions on posting more consistently after the new year, but as usual life has gotten in the way. I have been fighting a cold that has gotten worse and we are babysitting the grand-pups for a few days.

As you all know, we LOVE a good flank steak, so when I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest while meal planning I knew we had to give it a try.

It did not disappoint.  The only thing we would do differently is marinate the flank steak in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper in our Vacu-vin marinator for about 30 minutes before preparing.  We have found our flank steaks to turn out moist and very tender if we do so.

We served it with brown sugar glazed carrots (baby carrots roasted with a bit of brown sugar and butter until tender, easy peasy).

This is a week full of new recipes, so I will be sure to share the ones we enjoyed the most with you at a later date.

Now I am off to nurse this cold, and pray it doesn't last long.  5 of my little ones as well as a fellow teacher are out for the count with the same symptoms this week!!

Praying you are all well and staying warm!!

Feel better my friend! I need to check out a Vacu-vin marinator. Never heard of one of those!

Hope you feel better, Lauren! I could eat a plate full of roasted carrots. They're just so good.
