And the holidays are finally here! Like, really here. Have you done your shopping? Decorated the house? I find myself getting so stressed out and tired this time of year. Especially this year. Oliver, my new shiba inu puppy, has been keeping me super super busy. Naturally, he’s sleeping now.
I’ve been working on cleaning out my freezer since I’ll be leaving town for 2 weeks for the holidays! First stop, Dallas, second stop, Paris! Anyway, back to the freezer.
I found a piece of flank steak in there and decided I’d make a nice steak salad for lunch this week. It’s one of those recipes that’s so simple, but seriously, so freaking good. Peppery steak and arugula matched up with creamy avocado and zingy balsamic? YUM! It’s also lighter than some of the other treats I’ve been indulging in this season.
What’s your go to simple dish during the hectic holidays? I need a few more on my list!
