Hey there, hope you’re having a fantastic morning so far!  This week has been going along pretty smoothly so I can’t complain.

steak dinner

Steak dinner two nights in a row??  Life is good! 🙂

Pan-seared steak topped with homemade cilantro salsa, brussel spouts roasted in the oven until the outer leaves got nice and crispy, and fresh red pepper slices.

This dinner hit the spot!  But the winning piece to this meal goes to the cilantro salsa!

A few years ago, I followed the recipe I clipped out of a Clean Eating magazine but after moving a number of times, I’m almost positive I lost it.  However, after a quick web search, I was reunited with this recipe in a matter of seconds.  What would I ever do without Google or the Internet?


The only change this time around was roasting up two poblano peppers instead of one.


I simply popped them under the broiler for a few minutes on all sides, watching to ensure they charred evenly and didn’t burn up in smoke.


Once I got a nice char on the outside, I threw them in a large ziploc bag to steam for about 10 minutes so the skins would peel off easily.

Into the food processor went the peeled roasted peppers, along with the remaining ingredients, blending until smooth.  And that’s it!

As the recipe calls, I first used it on a beautiful salmon fillet which was tasty as ever, but this time around I poured it atop my steak.  Fresh and zesty!


It’s an extremely versatile salsa.  I’ve used it as a salad dressing (with a little extra oil added), in a wrap with scrambled eggs and feta for breakfast, on chicken, etc.


Now, lets take a peek at what goes on in my world every evening.

mac fluff

All this happens within 20 minutes or less of surrendering this stuffed toy over to him.  He never fails to completely destroy his stuffed animals and rip off each and every head.  I swear we have like 4 heads laying around the house from a duck, penguin, lion, you name it.  Plus their remaining bodies are hanging around here somewhere as well.


Oh there’s one!


“Do I have something in my teeth?”  Ohh man, what a goof ball!  Needless to say, we are constantly finding fluff all around the house and the vacuum is becoming my new best friend.


And yet I still continue to buy him new toys!  You would think I’d have learned by now… 😉
