It’s the last week in August and there is a distinct chill in the evening along with our normal Puget Sound dew. We should see the emergence of slugs very soon now (ever step on one of those barefoot!!???).
I’m trying to get the most out of my beach theme this week!
And thanks to Martha Stewart (I love that self-made woman!) we have a bunch of beach-themed party recipes for you to enjoy!
I will post one of them below.

Martha Stewart’s Beach Party Recipes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 pound skirt steak, cut crosswise into 2 equal pieces (if too large for skillet, cut into smaller pieces)
2 red bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), halved and thinly sliced
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 to 2 jalapeno chiles (ribs and seeds removed), very thinly sliced lengthwise
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
8 flour tortillas (6-inch)
sour cream and lime wedges, for serving
In a small bowl, combine cumin, coriander, 2 teaspoons coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Rub steaks all over with spice mixture.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high; add meat (if crowded, cook in two batches). Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board. Tent steaks with aluminum foil, and let rest at least 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, reduce heat to medium; add bell peppers, onion, and chiles; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add lime juice, and stir, scraping up browned bits in skillet.
Stack tortillas, and wrap in a damp paper towel or kitchen towel. Microwave on high 1 minute. Thinly slice steaks crosswise, and serve with tortillas, peppers, onion, and chiles, along with sour cream and lime wedges.
These look like something you could make at home then wrap in foil for a beach picnic!
