Hi Everyone !
I can't believe we are in the middle of September already! Which reminds us it will be the end of summer. I had a thought to make a dish to say good bye to summer before Fall is knocking on my door.
Last week after I picked up some flank steak from the grocery place, I was looking for vegetables to work with this yummy and tasty flank steak. What could be good with beef flavor ? I was lucky to find some snow peas this late in summer. So let snow peas be my feature of this week.
I wanted to make a stir-fry that would bring the flavors out from beef and be a little crunchy from the snow peas. This is a great and satisfying dish perfect for a week night meal. Perhaps you can enjoy this meal in between one of the many festivals or activities going on this weekend, or Sunday night to wind down and relax from the weekend.
Oh well….. It's the last month to enjoy summer food and summer fests…
I am not ready to say good bye to summer yet because so many festivals are still going on.….
Here are some festivals for this week:
- The portage park community fair : Enjoy food, crafts and arts. I know one of my friends shows her craft works there. Check out The Three Letter Birds works of whimsical insiprations and spiring .
- Spirits tasting at the zoo : get ready to be shaken and stirred.
- Oaktoberfest : celebrate the changing season. Enjoy pulled pork, wine, craft beer and music.
- Evanston art & big fork festival : food , music and art.
- Riverwalk fine art fair : enjoy the river walk along with delightful fine art.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend
