Tidbits

Here’s Ollie, stalking through some tall grass.Another sous vide flat iron steak with chimichurri.  We’re liking the chimichurri quite a lot.  This one has red jalapenos for a little color.  Our recipe deletes the cilantro in favor of parsley and fresh oregano.  On the side are stir-fried green beans and hash browned potatoes.
