Easter 2009

During the Easter egg hunts, I usually take the pictures.  Tom was directing me over to the side of the house-I guess that makes him the director-where Brian was headed.  Thinking nothing of it,  I started scanning for egg so that I could be ready with the camera.  That is when I noticed a a beautiful pot of tulips atop a pile of 4×4’s.  Tom had placed them there the day before.  It is funny because I walked by them that day and didn’t even notice them. 

We broke away from the traditional Easter ham and cooked out on the grill.  We treated ourselves to t-bone steaks (a guilty indulgence). I was looking for a garlic marinade and found one on the Food Network website.  I used some thyme from my garden to make the marinade. In their recipe it called for fresh rosemary I just omitted the rosemary.  The steaks had just a hint of garlic and herb.  They were delicious and we had enough leftover for supper this evening.  We sliced the leftover steak into thin strips, then sautéed the strips, then added a quick, homemade teriyaki sauce that I made and heated it all together. We topped a green salad with the teriyaki steak strips.
