Hi everyone! I’m very happy that it’s Friday, but I’m even happier that I have an entire day off tomorrow! Wahoo! I don’t have to be anywhere in the morning (since my client at CPC is out of town) and can have a leisurely start to my day. It’s a recovery day for me, but I’ll probably wake up and go for a walk first thing. A morning stroll in the cool air is so refreshing and invigorating. It’s a nice wake-up call, with no caffeine required!
I’m also hoping for some better sleep this weekend, as the past couple nights have been problematic for me, with lots of tossing n’ turning and frequent waking. We did have a full moon this week though, so that’s probably why. I kid you not, but literally every time there’s a full moon, I do not sleep well. I know this isn’t uncommon, but sometimes I wonder if I’m going to turn into a darn werewolf or something!
Other than that, I’m thinking Jesse and I will have a date night this weekend. I think we could both use it and we haven’t had a date night in a long time. Usually it just consists of dinner out, but it’s good enough for the both of us and kinda fun to wear normal clothes for a change too. We live in workout clothes!
Happy weekend! What are your plans?
Curried Skirt Steak and Veggies
- 1/2 Tbsp grass-fed tallow or other fat of choice
- 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 lb skirt steak, cut into thin strips
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp coriander
- Sea salt to taste
- 1/4 cup homemade or good-quality chicken broth, plus more if needed
- 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
- 2-3 large kale leaves, stemmed and chopped
- Melt tallow in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and saute for 1-2 minutes.
- Next add the skirt steak strips and season to taste with sea salt. Stir and continue to saute.
- After a 2-3 minutes, add the curry powder, smoked paprika, coriander and chicken broth. Stir and then add the cherry tomatoes. Continue to cook for another minute, and then add the kale leaves.
- After another minute or so, once the meat is cooked through and the kale is softened, remove from heat and serve. I recommend eating over buttery mashed cauliflower. It’s even good all on its own.
