[Comments] (1) Orange-Mint Marinade:

1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons sesame seeds -- toasted
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

John prepared steak in this marinade for dinner tonight. I think it is supposed to be for chicken, but it was delicious! We used dried mint though, because we are poor.

I cooked the steak while he was at class and also made Cheddar-herb bicuits and garlic mashed potatoes. We also have some kind of a pear with a brown skin (John did the grocery shopping...) It is yummy, and I think it tastes like hyacinths.

My favorites are asian pears. When I watch Willy Wonka and the Charlie Factory, and Gene Wildler bites into a little flower cup while he sings "Pure Imagination," I imagine he is eating an asian pear (because of the crunch sound). Now that I've mentioned Willy Wonka, Atticus is really looking forward to the new one that is coming out. He is both a huge Tim Burton fan and a Willy Wonka fan. He wants to go see it for his birthday.
