Looks like ozzy off to a great start. nice solid marinade. I'll probably end up doing skirt steak as well if I can get the wife to pick some up. I don't get paid until tuesday. 
Too bad I can't enter my tacos from other day. 
Wife grabbed a couple peaches. I was thinking about trying something new and making a cucumber peach salsa. Might be a bit sweet for steak though. 
Nice plate man!
