Rainy Days & a Recipe

This weekend was pretty good until it started raining cats and dogs on Sunday. Although the rain didn’t ruin my weekend too much because on Sunday I woke up feeling really awful, as in the start of a cold was brewing. So needless to say I spent today with a crazy sore throat and half of my voice. But anyways on Sunday my mom spent the day cooking for us, from this new cookbook I received and let her try out. The plan had been for us to cook together but I was sick and dizzy that I spent the whole day in bed.

The cookbook I received is called Grill It, Braise It, Boil It. It’s produced by the American Heart Association and really does provide healthy recipes for all types of at-home cooks! The meal my mom chose to make was Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce. She says that the recipe was pretty easy as long as you have a food processor! Also the sauce ends up being quite a lot, so you might want to scale down when making it.

I think that our meal came out really well! There are a few other recipes that I want to try as well. Some of the recipes are easy enough to make with stuff you have on hand but others might require a trip to the store. I am dying to try out a few smoothie recipes I saw that involve, kale and blueberries! If I make that I’ll have to let you know how it came out! In the mean time here are a few pictures of our dinner:

The only thing I didn’t really like about this book is there are hardly any pictures, it would have been nice to see a few more. I hope everyone is having a good Monday and also had a nice weekend! Did the rain ruin your plans? Tell us in the comments below!
