Day 64

Adult Menu
  • beef fajitas
Girl Child
Ate some of the beef but not in a fajita. She had hard taco shells with cheese and sour cream, and some raw baby carrots.

Boy Child
Also tried some beef and I think he liked it. He had hard taco shells with cheese (no sour cream) and raw baby carrots.

We looooove our fajitas down here in Tejas, y'all. And they are super easy (and usually pretty cheap!) to make. I made them with skirt steak which was liberally sprinkled with a fajita spice rub (pre-mixed) and sealed in a plastic zipper bag with a mixture of lime juice (FRESH please!) and EVOO, then left in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

I grilled the steak over high heat for 4 minutes per side, discarding the marinade, then let it rest while I grilled some sweet onions and red and yellow bell peppers (drizzled with EVOO). Then I cut the steak into thin strips across the grain and served it with the grilled veggies, some avocado, shredded cheddar, sour cream and salsa on whole-wheat tortillas. YUM.

Be sure to have a Dos Equis Amber or a Modelo with your fajitas, yo. None of that Corona crappe. I'll know.
