    Took me a while to get used to. I'm a white bread person. I still think some things will always taste better with white bread. Not this sandwich though.

    Just made a variation on my chorizo subs above

    Part baked French bread again

    took two thin cut sirloin steaks, rubbed them in salt to tender up and go red for fifteen minutes, then rubbed them in steak rub seasoning and added powdered, diced and dried roast garlic.
    Fried them on high heat for just three minutes, being quick to turn them over right away to seal in the juices.

    Made homemade chimmichurri sauce using balsamic vinaigrette and dried chimmichurri spices, doused the steaks in that and then sliced them up, dousing them again in that and grated roast garlic and diced garlic.

    covered some red Leicester cheese in some diced garlic and microwaved it to bubbling melted.

    Buttered the hot bread out of the oven, then spread the garlic cheese inside and added strips of the chimmichurri soaked steak.

    Mwah! manufique.
    Could have eaten two.

    mxx added Heinz garlic sauce to hers, in-case there wasn't enough garlic already.

    *breathes in French*
    I'm the best mayne. I did it.

    Also, in an effort to make my bf eat greens, I've made several spinach pies, until finally he says, "I'd like pie if you didn't put spinach in it."

    Try putting them in a shepherd's pie instead. That way he'll be distracted by the potatoes.

    Oh, I just mixed some up using dried chimmichurri herb mix and balsamic vinaigrette. It tastes close enough. It's not like it's homemade ...oops, I wrote homemade didn't I. It's not, it's just a mix I bought at Woolworths in Cape Town.

    Ah, okay. My family must have been purists because, although we ate barbeque all the time, we never made a dressing to go with it.

    I remember the only two words my Chinese neighbor would say in Vancouver was, "Barbeque again?" My father would say something equally verbose and the neighbor would nod and go back inside.

    Fish tacos yesterday - new thing for us.

    In skillet - grapeseed oil, taco seasoning, some water, 1 squeezed lime, bunch of fresh dill, diced onion, zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, a bit of coconut oil. Once that's pretty much cooked and not too liquidy, add in 1 pound of cubed cod and try not to overcook the fish.

    Creamy sauce - 1 part sour cream, 1 part avocado mayonnaise, squeezed lime, 1 tsp garlic powder, green chiles (i used mostly the juice)

    Chopped up cilantro&lettuce and tomato and guacamole for garnish

    Hard corn taco shells, warmed in the oven 5 minutes (we also did some soft tacos with corn tortillas)

    Came out very nice, will do this one again

    Yum. A Canadian guy took us to his favourite Mexican restaurant for Fish Tacos in San Diego. The kind of fast food I could really go for.
