What is flank steak?

Flank steak is a long and flat cut of beef, used in a variety of dishes including London broil and as an alternative to the traditional skirt steak in fajitas. Flank and skirt steak are both long, flat cuts of steak. It can be grilled, pan-fried, braised, and of course broiled. It’s tender and delicious for tacos!

Be an encourager

Anyone can be an encourager. Seriously, it’s not that hard. It mostly takes heart and love, not lots of skill and knowledge, to be an encourager.

My mom was an encourager. We are working toward becoming more “minimalistic” these days (yes, we had a huge yard sale over the weekend – whew!), and I ran across some boxes of journals and cards in my sorting. Some, from my mom, I will never get rid of. In fact, when I find a card from her, I immediately place it inside my Bible.

Mom was simple, and loving, and encouraging. She expressed her love to others in many ways, and one was by sending cards.

Encouraging words

Encouraging words help people take the next step they couldn’t take on their own.

“Encourage” means to “give” courage. We really do need one another.

This little note was from mom to me, back in the 1980’s when I was a single gal. How did mom know that I really needed that verse on that day? And to get a card in the mail?

It made me think about friendships. I also came across notes and letters and journal entries from so many friends, who are still my very good friends today. That made me smile.

Thanks for letting me share a nostalgic moment with you today on my blog. I truly loved and miss my mama!

Now … think of 3 people you know who could do with some encouragement, make a plan, and go DO IT (whatever that means for you!)

Quick Flank Steak Tacos

Flank steak is a quick meal, too. You season it, set aside for about 10 minutes,  and then cook for only 4-5 minutes. Set out the toppings, quickly heat the tortillas, and your mouth will be watering!

It’s so easy, I told Paul, we should make this for our friends, who are great encouragers (and have taught me and my husband a lot). Do you ever do that? Think of a meal that is great, and then match it up with some friends you know who’d enjoy it with you?
