A Road Trip, A Gluten-Free Recipe, and Medicine Avoidance
Posted Nov 04 2009 2:15pm
Here we go again - this time to North Carolina to deliver a portrait I've been working on. (That would be my other job.) Jessie and I will also get to visit my dear mom.
Jes has continued to do well except thattrue to her irritatingly teenage tendenciesshe did NOT take any of her medication yesterday. Where was the medication-watching ogre? Helloshe was doing her other job! Anywayneedless to say the little bratum...girlslept terribly last night. Here's hoping that missing two doses won't create too much of a problem. Medicine ogre will be sure to give the little *&^%* melatonin tonight to get the ball rolling.
Below is a super easy steak marinade that has become one of our favorites. It was originally written to be used with flank steakbut I've used it with london broil and tonight with a thick sirloin. It goes great with rice pilaf.
Shucks! Where was my motherly ESP when I needed it? Had I known that Jessie needed melatoninI would have cooked turkey tonight instead. Over-anxious mom here is beginning to fall down on the job. Shame. Shame. :)
