Carne Asada 

Tonight is our first softball practice of the season. B started playing last Spring and it was quite exciting to see her get her first hits. It was also lovely because Hubs grew up playing ball and volunteered to Shuttle B back and forth to and from all of her practices.

Since then he has started Crossfitting. Our box offers a 2 day a week membership, but for two specific classes. This year, it looks like those classes are going to overlap with t-ball.  Of course. Such is motherhood.

The spring is highly chaotic around these parts. In addition to our regularly scheduled programming (work, crossfit, life….) and t-ball, the spring is incredibly chaotic for both Hubs and I at work. I have started my countdown to the last day of school already. 60 school days until freedom.

Grilling provides a lot of flavor without a lot of work. This recipe is also wonderful because carne asada is (relatively) cheap. I picked up some grassfed carne asada for $8 a pound. 


  • 2 pounds carne asada steak
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground chipotle pepper 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Combine all of the spices and rub them on the outside of the carne asada.
  2. Grill meat until it is just cut through. This will depend on the thickness of your meat. 
  3. Serve with guacamole and your favorite rice (use cauliflower rice to make it paleo) and guacamole.
