Helping The Community

One of my favorite things about our little church is how everyone gets very involved with helping others in need, whether it is our community at large, or within our own little “family”. One of our young couples just had their second child, little Maddie, born the day before my birthday, on Feb. 6 (though just barely), and we made a food chain to help them out. A different person has been busy making food for them everyday for the past two weeks. Yesterday was my day, though I gave them some of our breakfast burritos from our Super Bowl service too. The Burrito Factory

I made them a batch of Mediterranean steak with roasted vegetables and cannellini beans. Roasted Strip Steak andΒ Vegetables I also included a bag of salad and some bread with a little plate of sweet goodies and treats leftover from Sunday’s service.

I just made a double batch, one for them and one for us. After all, it’s just as easy to make two batches as it is to make one batch. πŸ™‚ The text I received was that they thought it was all delicious. SWEET! Mission accomplished.

This dish is an easy one-pan dish that is all roasted in the oven at 450* F or about 235 *C. Start by roasting the broccolini, mushrooms, garlic, and onions tossed with olive oil, lemon balsamic vinegar and red pepper flakes (for ours only, and optional) for 15 minutes, then add the seasoned skirt steak and continue roasting for about 5-7 minutes per side, for a nice medium rare steak.

After the steak was cooked, I let it rest for about five or so minutes before slicing it, but added the tomatoes and cannellini beans to the vegetable mix and let them roast for about 5-7 minutes.

Once everything is done, all that is left to do is to enjoy the roasted good flavors, with a glass or two of medium bodied red wine. Simply delicious!

Have a great day and help make someone else’s day great too. It doesn’t take much to help make someone else’s day great. Most often, it is the little things that mean the most.

Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.

  1. Although I’m not religious, I greatly appreciate the support and generosity that numerous churches provide. My mother dedicated much of her life to charitable acts and making a difference in the lives of others through her church.
