Round 2, Whole30, Day 28

April 20, 2016

Sometimes, I goof.

The short version.

That Steak Salad that I raved about in yesterday’s post? Well, I goofed and forgot to include the recipe for the marinade. I have revised that post to include the marinade recipe.

I did change the recipe just a bit from the original, and I have now posted the recipe, Flank Steak Marinade, here on the blog.

My apologies if anyone was super eager to make that salad (like my daughter was) and was perplexed as to where the marinade for the flank steak was.

My Day

Yesterday was one of the first days in what seems like forever, that I did not have a “to do” list, or any place that I needed to be. It was nice.

You know what I did do? I’m ridiculously excited. I planned a trip for Mike and I to go to NYC! Guys, I’m super stoked! I have been wanting the two of us to go to New York for a long time! I want to see a play on Broadway, I want to stay right smack in the middle of Times Square, I wanna eat some yummy New York food, I want to go to Museums, I want to go to coffee shops and people watch, I wanna walk the streets of New York City! I just wanna soak up as much of the city as we can, in four days.

I booked our flights and our hotel. Now for some planning of all of the things that we want to do! We’re going in October! Yay!

I also got to have this little angel over last night.


Um, please note the nice clean garage that allowed her all sorts of room for wagon pulling fun! It was a moment of pride for me. 

Her mom got to go to the KC Royals game with her co-workers. Mom was spoiled in a suite at the stadium for the evening. She has a new job that she is loving, and they really seem to be taking great care of her! So happy for her!

My niece started moving in last night too, so we had all sorts of excitement going on here last night at our Empty Nester house.

Great day here yesterday. I hope you had a great day too!
