Dave knows the way to my heart. It is not with candy or flowers or even jewelry. It is cold hard cash!! For Valentines he gave me some money to go and buy what I wanted. I love that. It may seem kind of unromantic but believe me the porky pig pajamas he chose one year were “unromantic”. I love to have some cash in my pocket and not feel as if I need to worry about how I spend it. I went straight to Williams and Sonoma and bought something that I really didn’t need but wanted. Those are the best things. I bought a smokeless table top indoor grill. I know why not just go out and light up the gas grill. Well because I don’t have to now, I can us my indoor grill. It is really good for small quick grilling jobs as it heats up quick, and cleans up even quicker.
For Sunday dinner, I made my marinated flank steak and just used some of the leftover marinade and tossed some sliced zucchini and thickly sliced onions in it. While the meat was cooking on the outdoor grill, I made the veggies on the indoor grill. They were so good. I think if I didn’t have he marinade made, I would just use some olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. Can’t wait to try other types of veggies–mushrooms, peppers, cauliflower, tomatoes, potatoes and the list goes on and on.
