Steak Fajitas

Dear Boys,

Your sister left for Greece yesterday.  She went last summer, as well, as a missionary intern and has returned to serve the same ministries.

A community center.  A mission for the homeless.  One for those caught in the horrors of human trafficking.

We’re all going to miss her terribly, but I’m so thankful she went where she was called.

I want that for all of you.

To do and be what you were made for.

Even if it’s on the other side of the world.

Beth helped me make these steak fajitas a few nights before she left.

It’s a tried and true Paula Deen recipe.


In a gallon zip lock bag, put 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil and

3 Tablespoons lemon juice.  Sorry, but there is no photo for the lemon juice.  When I loaded the photos on my computer for this recipe, it seemed that half of them were blurry and very out of focus.

Must have had a tear in my eye about missing your sister.  Sniff.  Sniff.

Actually, if we’re honest, it’s more likely my photography skills.  I do love and miss her so very much, but I wasn’t crying that night, and there were a lot of poor photos.

It seems Sherri’s Sharp Shots has a ways to go, Will.


Also put into the bag 1 garlic clove, minced, and

1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder,  1 teaspoon onion powder, and a dash of hot sauce.

I sealed the bag and swished all these ingredients together.  It might be simpler to mix them in a bowl and then pour into a bag.  Your choice.

When it’s mixed, add 1 and 1/2 pounds steak.  

Let the meat marinate for an hour in the refrigerator.

While the meat is cooking, slice peppers and onions into strips and saute until tender in butter or olive oil.

I set out tortillas, cheese, lettuce, rice, sour cream and guacamole with the steak and vegetables and let everyone make their own.


Hope you enjoy!

Love you,
