Last weekend's cooks(lots of pics)

So I am finally getting around to posting these but both were great. I made fajitas on Saturday and lasagna on Sunday.

I did the APL Fajitas from Serious Barbecue. He has you make a pan sauce to dredge the meat in half way through cooking and then again at the end

Here is the flank steak after marinating and rub:

I got some pepper and onions all sexy on the grill, but I forgot to shoot the onions.

While the vegetables got all sexy, I painted canola oil onto the steak:

Then onto the grill:


image

Sexytime!

After the searing, into the pan sauce:

Then back onto the grill to "flavor bomb" the steak and then back into the sauce.

Beautiful! Last shot, hungry SWMBO was becoming angry SWMBO:

Sunday is Funday, so I made lasagna, naturally.

This was layered noodle, meat sauce, mozz/ricotta mixture and mozz/parm on top.

While cooking, I prepped a fresh tomato/balsamic salad with some flaked sea salt:

Nice and bubbly:

Gooey and smelling awesome, first serving for the progeny:

    Someone must have got themselves a new camera.

    Beautiful food, beautiful pics, beautiful baby girl! 

    Those fajitas look and sound incredible.  I might buy that book just for this recipe.  



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Great pics of some good looking food. I have to agree with the others, though- money shot wins the prize.
