Flank Steak Tacos with Grilled Cabbage and San Francisco

Last Sunday was our last day of vacation.  I hoo!  

Anyway, Jimmy made our dinner and did a fabulous job!  While 
we were away we happened to see a Grill It! episode with Bobby 
Flay.  Jim was intrigued and decided to use this recipe to 
marinade to make some flank steak tacos.  

The best part was that Jim was totally inspired from the grilled 
romaine in the recipe and decided to grill some shredded
cabbage for one of the taco toppings.  We have used cabbage
on fish tacos but never steak.  Grilling it brought out a smokiness
that was fantastic with the smokiness of the beef.  If you haven't
tried it do!  It was so good!  To finish the tacos we just needed
some sour cream, cheese and a little salsa verde!  Perfection!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our San Francisco 

(If you look close you can see my sons and me in one of the 
Chinatown pics.  Well, the back of our heads at least.)

We had a fabulous time!  The weather was beautiful and at 
least 40 + degrees cooler than Oklahoma!  We did a lot of 
walking and I was so sore that I was walking like a 90 year 
old woman but it was worth it.  We saw some amazing sites 
and had so much fun!  My kids are getting older and we didn't 
know how much longer they would be going on vacations with 
old mom and dad so we thought we should take one more big 
one before they all grow up and leave us.  I'm so glad we did 
but I'm looking forward to going back to see my Dad and Florida 
Mom next year so I can RELAX!  LOL!

I'd love to hear about your favorite place in San Francisco and 
also Napa Valley.  While we were on vacation Jimmy promised 
to take me there on our 25th anniversary in a couple of years. I'd 
love hear about some great places in Napa!  I haven't been there
.......yet!  ;)
