Easy Grilled Steak Tacos

Hey! Weekend is here once again….hip hip hurray! I would love to hear from you all….what are you loving here on the blog…what are you not-liking…what would you like to see more of…anything really. I am feeling a little disconnect with you all…and in turn have lost my mojo. It is a challenge…trying to share freely while also entertaining the masses. When I first started out it seems that we had a lot more “conversations”…but now it is rare that I hear from you (other that of course my rockstar—number one reader Amanda :) So as I enter into this 6th year of blogging…I would love to know…what bothers you about blogs…what do you love…what should I consider as I move forward…please do tell!!!

For today I will share this easy grilled steak taco recipe…it marinates over night and makes the inexpensive flank steak tender and juicy:)

I love that everyone can make their own…I served the steak up with lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa and guacamole and fresh lime wedges. The steak has so much flavor that you really don’t need much.

    OMG, I made it into a blog post!!!! You’ve seriously made my day, I feel like a rock star….LOL!!!! :)))

    I have to admit that in the summer months I tend not to keep up with blogs like I do during the school year. So I might not check in daily, but when I do, I’m always excited to see posts about home decor or room makeovers. But I realize you can’t always be making something over (especially with a NEW house). I love beach house updates, or even stuff about family life.

    And I’m not normally one to actually try recipes, but for some reason (maybe because they’re not complicated), I try a lot of yours and they’re always a hit – the healthy chicken pot pie has become a family favorite during the winter months – I’ve forwarded that recipe to lots of people. I’ve also tried the lemon chicken orzo, the chicken & veggies in a dish (one pot meal), the tacos/fajitas, and your sea salt caramel has also become a Christmas time fav.

    A post I’d like to see is about the lake house. Last we heard, you had rented it. But I realize that if there are renters living there, you might not be able to talk much about it to respect their privacy. Or how about a post about your old neighborhood – how did it feel to leave there, do you miss it, is it weird driving by and seeing a new family living in your house, or are you so happy in your new place that you don’t even think much of the old one?

    In short, I’m always happy to see a new post from you and I know when people don’t comment it must feel like nobody is reading :( But I know you have followers because sometimes I’ll see friends of mine share your post to FB or pin something of yours.

    Thanks again for the shout out (LOL!) and have a good weekend :)

    One reason I don’t reply is that I mostly read your blog from my email feed, and there isn’t a place for comments. I’ve been following you since last November when I started working as manager of Eclectica Gallery (which recently closed). Loved that store, and always felt we weren’t always carrying enough of the right inventory for our location and customers, but were changing in that direction. I love the concept of combining old with new and you illustrate that in so many of your home decor blogs.

    I love your recipes and projects and home decor articles as they are so simple yet have big impact. Keep up the good work. I’m searching for my next big thing, maybe you can “cleverly inspire” me!

    Hi Tracie, I’ve been reading and following your blog for several years. I enjoy your home and neighborhood updates as well as the lake house posts. I also enjoy your hostess tips for everyday and especially during the holidays.

    I’m sure after 6 years it’s difficult to come up with daily or even weekly posts, but be well assured your blog is casual, fresh and interesting. I always look forward to reading what’s happening in your world! Thanks so much for taking the time you do each week!
