Easy summer to fall meal
We had an easy dinner today; it being Sunday it was at lunchtime but it was dinner. Later it'll be "get whatever you can find" to eat for supper, cereal or soup or sandwiches. This was a season transition meal as well. We had grilled flank steak, mashed potatoes, and spinach. This meal was about as easy as can be. For the flank steak, I marinated it in McCormick's Meat Marinade, then cooked it on the grill to medium-rare. Slice flank steak against the grain. Sweet Pea peeled and diced the potatoes and got them started while I was working on the meat. When done, the potatoes were mashed with milk and butter, a sprinkle of salt and pepper. The spinach was frozen, chopped spinach, cooked in the microwave with a little butter and shredded Parmesan cheese. I'm making apple something for dessert, maybe apple cake, if I can find the recipe. It's one from Mom so I know it's around here somewhere.
