Now that the holiday feasts have come and gone, I wanted to get back to eating healthier. With all the mashed potatoes and desserts I consumed over the past month, I was really craving a salad for dinner.

I happened to see that the Flank Steak was on special at our local grocery store. So I picked up a few green and orange peppers and intended on grilling the steak with a side of sautéed veggies.

It rarely rains in Southern California, but of course it happened the night we wanted to grill out. Go figure. So I had to improvise with what to do about dinner.
