No Labor for the Weary

Hope you have the most relaxing Labor Day!  That's the plan here at the Smith T house.

Here's what we have on the menu today:

Grilled Flank Steak 
(grill it medium rare and slice super thin).
This marinade is my friend Sarah's recipe and it is too yummy for words: Bragg's aminos liquid (or soy sauce), agave nectar, garlic, lemon juice, green onions, olive oil and dried Italian herbs.

Roasted Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes
(sorry no picture, I haven't made it yet)

Sliced Tomatoes & Lady pea Salad
I cooked the fresh lady peas in homemade chicken stock until tender.  Then put them in the frig to cool down.  When you're ready, slice the tomatoes, sprinkle on the peas and your favorite salad mix.

Last step, drizzle the entire salad with a dressing made of lemon juice, olive oil, lemon pepper, kosher salt and back pepper.

Other Offerings:
Swimming at the pool (it closes for season today)

Catching up on shelter magazines - such a chore (smile).

Mani/Pedi in a new fall color 

Trip to the driving range for the boys

Just a totally relaxing day

See you tomorrow! M.


  1. Looks like a nice way to spend Labor day, love that Chanel polish.

  2. Yum, looks delicious! We've got a chilly (crazy, I know), rainy day here so we're going to have to stick to some indoor activities as our pool activities were cancelled. :(

    Love that nail polish. Might have to check into that color for fall.

    Enjoy your Labor Day!

  3. WE have had dreadful weather all day, but we do need the rain. Your meal looks so much better than what we had for dinner!

  4. Yummy meal and I love your nails. I like how you did every other color! So fashion forward ;)
    P.S. Wanted to say the word you used "smart" for gingham on my post. That is just the word I was looking for. It is a totally "smart" print. Thanks for the help.


Thank you for thoughts on my post! M.
