sunday. i usually have sundays off. my husband has plans to cook his own dinner tonight. he found a recipe for beef fajitas that he wants to try out. some men look at porn after their wives have crawled in to bed, mine reads old cookbooks. yesterday he found a book i picked up a few weeks ago at a charity shop for 25p- 'new mexico cook book, 175 recipes from the land of enchantment' it was published in 1990. i know he has a thing for tex/mex southwest US regional cooking.

juice of two limes
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro
1 medium sized jalapeno seeded and minced
2 cloves garlic finely minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2lbs skirt steak or flank steak
2 med sized avocados, peeled and sliced
1 medium sized onion thinly sliced

mix the lime juice, oil, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl. marinate the steak in this mixture, cover and stick in the fridge for at least 8hrs. remove steak and cook with sliced onions. serve with sliced avocado and warm tortillias, and salsa. supposed to serve 6

well in this house we don't have to serve 6. only my husband will be eating the fajitas. so we'll play around with this recipe and let you know how it goes. amounts will be adjusted, things added and things subtracted.
