Friends, I’ve been on a purging spree and one of my projects has been to sort through my dishes, deciding which ones to keep and which ones to give away, or which ones go to Good Will. I must say, it feels good. We’re gearing up for a giant yard sale, which means I have some exciting news coming very soon! :)

Once or twice a year it’s good and necessary to dig deep, and really thin out the kitchen and pantry. I have a more minimalistic view now, so I’m challenging myself on what I really need for a functional kitchen!

Dishes, dishes, dishes …

I love my blue set from Q Squared, because they go so well with Cinco de Mayo, spring, 4th of July, even fall time entertaining. I do love blue! Oh, and I also love my red set. Last year I worked with Q Squared NYC who graciously provided me with these beauties. Then there’s my set of 24 white Dollar Store plates. Oh, which ones will I keep?

For Cinco de Mayo last year, I hosted a large party, and my centerpiece was small glass vessels, with beans and succulents from our garden. This year we may celebrate on a smaller scale :)

What to keep, what to give away

I’m asking myself if I’ve used them in the last year, and if not, they’re going in the yard sale box!

Love what you love. Enjoying your kitchen means really paying attention to the things that make you happy, and getting rid of the stuff that just sits there. That feels heavy.

It means being open to new ideas, tips, and thinning out.

I also want to share with you today a very delicious dinner that I recently made, since it’s grilling season. I’m always looking for a yummy marinade, and the flavors of this Delicious Marinated Steak are the bomb!

Since it’s time to fire up the grill (at least in Oregon), this is an easy one, with very few ingredients, a unique blend of spices gives a bold twist on traditional grilled steak. (I wrote a little blurb about grilling, here.)

Also, this recipe was created with gluten-free guests in mind, and delicious served with a side of beans!

Happy Thursday! Will you be entertaining this weekend?

  1. I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TRY THIS to see if it beats my marinate of soy sauce and Montreal steak seasoning which get marinated over night or all day

  2. HI Sandy,
    I will try this marinade., a bit different than the Korean one I make. I sure in looking at the spice choices it will be a hit!!!
    I get the minimalist mindset. I am there too !!! As much as I LOVE dishes, keeping with our shared mindset I will have to restrain myself from your yard sale. Preparing to go nomadic. Best wishes on your yard sale and enjoy the labors of your hard work it takes to put one on, and the great feeling of “getting rid”. You need an accordion? LOL So enjoyed traveling with you to Italy.

  3. Yum! I have yet to master steak. Oh, I wish I lived closer. I’d come to a yard sale at your house :)
