During the first Christmas I spent with M’s family, M’s niece and Mom brought out a stack of old cards and started assemblingContinue Reading

Chipotle Marinated Flank Steak

The jars are back. I don’t know where they came from or who let them in, but the emptiness of the fridge is overshadowed by a door full of jars. Tahini, horseradish, hoisin, soy, chipotle: all lined up proudly in the door waiting to be used. With one month left in DC, we may justContinue Reading
