Today I’m sharing two of my favorite things. Not surprisingly, there are a lot of favorites going on in this bowl, but the main event is a well seasoned skirt steak and fries. I’ve always loved layers of flavors and this bowl has it all, including melted Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, green onion and cilantro with a dusting of queso fresco cheese to top it off. I can vouch for these fries, I’ve been making them for years. They are baked in the oven, yet taste as if they were fried. They are lightly seasoned and stay crisp throughout the pile of layers. Now that it’s officially Spring, I’m looking forward to longer daylight, warmer days and more time to spend outdoors grilling. A good skirt steak is one of my favorites to grill, it tastes so good in dishes like this that can be sliced or cut into bite size pieces. I’ve been seeing a range of new recipes combining steak and potatoes sometimes called Steak Frites or Loaded Steak Fries which inspired this bowl. Remember when rice bowls were all the rage; I can’t wait to see these pop up on menus around town!

For those who know me well know that I am a die hard Red Wings fan. In 1990 Joe and I moved to the Detroit area, ironically just an hour or so from where he grew up. We were fortunate enough to be able to go see the Red Wings play hockey at Joe Louis arena and from that first game I was hooked. Growing up in NM, hockey wasn’t something I was used too, but I grew to love the game and the players and now after 20 years you can’t pry me away from the TV when my beloved Wings are playing. They are the most entertaining group of guys on and off the ice. I love my Swede, Russian, Canadian and American born hockey players. They play a truly amazing game that is intense and exciting. I am a superstitious fan who feels the need to give good luck in the form of wearing red and white on game day as well as having something red and white to eat. Whether it be strawberries and whip cream or a caprese salad with tomatoes and fresh mozzarella there will be something red and white. But on special occasions, such as opening day we have Wings and Oven Fries. Joe created a monster when he introduced me to hockey, but he gained some fun things to eat as well. So indulge me in my obsession and LETS GO RED WINGS!!! Continue reading
