A discovery!

Darlings, I told you. I told you it was no good, I am too featherbrained and inconsistent ever to carry on such a serious occupation as journalling. In my defense, the browser crashed over the weekend. It took Ernest ever so long to figure out that it was a problem with my profiles.

In any case, here I am, with a new recipe! Actually invented by myself! I am so excited. I hope there are no vegetarians in the crowd--you must hide your eyes. Here it is:

The Lady's Marinated Steak Tacos with Guacamole

2 lbs skirt steak, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup ranchera sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4 dashes Worcestershire sauce

2 ripe avocados, peeled and chunked
4 tomatoes, chopped
6 scallions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 handful cilantro, chopped
lime juice
2 dashes olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Mix the lime juice, ranchera and Worcestershire sauces, and marinate the steak for as long as you like (it really doesn't take too long.) While the meat is marinating, mix up the guacamole. When you are ready to eat, throw the meat with the marinade onto a hot skillet; simultaneously throw the tortillas on an open burner for 6 seconds per side. (You must have a gas stove to do this. Persons with electric stoves should not be cooking.)

Serve with cold beer.
