Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans!
We will be attending a BBQ today, so I thought we’d celebrate the 4th of July a day early on our own, too. I wanted to do something special for my little family because I’ve been a little preoccupied with other things (like a new baby coming in a few weeks!) We’ve had enough peanut butter sandwiches to last us a lifetime!
I found a great marinade recipe that I have been wanting to try. (I was a little hesitant to use it.) The list of ingredients may seem a little odd. But, OH! I think I need to make this marinade for everything now. It was SO delicious. We used a 2 lb. boneless Sirloin steak instead of a London Broil and I marinated is for less time because it was a thinner cut of meat.
Marinated Sirloin Steak (I cooked it in my cast iron skillet–when can I get a grill???)
Mixed Greens Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
I made a triffle similar last weekend for another bbq and people devoured it!! So easy to make and stays moist… it’s the perfect pot luck dessert!
That menu sounds like stuff I could eat every day. I love it.
That salad is a favorite with me. Do you ever have Strawberry salad with poppyseed dressing? That is another summer favorite.. my friend lisa just did a variation of it (with pear) for a 4th celebration..
Isn’t there a baby showing up soon at your place?
What a delicious looking meal Lindsey! I wish I’d been there to eat it, it looks so good, especially the potatoes. (they are my favourite vegetable!)
