The Chef was hungry for Fajita's...I just smiled and went looking for my camera.
Watching him cook is a huge learning experience for me...when he says you should cut the flank steak on an angle...thin, to ensure even cooking....I listen.

perfectly sauteed and resting while the flank steak browns...

crazy amazing huh?....and this is just lunch!

Serve with fresh cilantro, guacamole, and salsa of choice.

"A nice "Cerveza" would go nicely with this" comments the Chef....

then he explains it's a Mexican beer....cause he thought I wouldn't know...I just smiled and pretended I did.

Chef did add a little "Chef Rick Bayless's Frontera Fajita Skillet Sauce."

No complaining from me....Mmmm....

Chef used a fajita wrap for his...I just ate mine naked...less carbs...resolutions and all.

We had the right lighting too... and to think I used to regularly skip lunch...

there will be no more skipping...


Kathy and the Chef...


  1. Oh that looks yummy. I think I'll make that for dinner tomorrow night. I will forgo the tortillas too.

  2. Oh my... skipping lunch..... I guess not : )
    I can not cook for a lick, BUT I would try, if you guys did some online lessons... : )
