The Outback Style Steak I made last weekend was a great success. Very easy to make and delicious. I combined it with corn on the cob, roasted in the oven, and brown rice.
This weekend I’m making Asparagus and Roasted Pepper Salad with Toasted Pecans.

The Song of the Week
Feeling a bit nostalgic this week.
Season 3 of Once Upon a Time. I am amazed that it took me 3 seasons to realize that Emma is played by Jennifer Morrison who played Cameron on House. Too much multitasking. I never watched the title sequence before!

Inspiration for the Week
Success in the form of a meaningful life comes to the people who are vulnerable enough to show up. Those willing to experiment, work, learn, love, grow, and fail and then go again. And, it is through our shared imperfections–after all, imperfection is the one thing we all have in common–that humanity appears.
