FUEL YOUR INNER ATHLETE
This is a repost from a couple of years ago but still a good one. With the cooler weather upon us, many of us will be looking for some easy and delicious crock pot meals, so here is one from Katie.
For this week, I am passing along an email with a collection of recipes for something that many of use probably don't think of for more than topping our tacos and nachos. No, not cheese, but that other dairy comfort food, sour cream. Sour cream is delicious in many recipes and brings a savory and tart flavor to many dishes while adding a creamy texture. In this collection of recipes from Cultures for Health, you can discover a new favorite way to use this common ingredient.

Enjoy it while you can, fire up the BBQ for a complete easy weeknight meal.
Flat iron steak with vegetable packet
1 - 2 flat iron steaks depending on size and the number of people
Season the steaks as desired and let them sit while you start your BBQ. Cut the asparagus, mushrooms and onion into large pieces. Lay out a piece of foil large enough to be able to fold around the vegetables. Place the vegetables in the center of the packet, season with salt and pepper and place a few bits of butter on top. Fold the foil over and crimp the edges to seal. Once the grill is hot, place the steaks and foil packet on. Cook until the steaks are done, flipping as needed. Cover the steaks for a few minutes off the grill once done and fix a nice little salad on your plate. Take care when opening the foil packet, the steam is hot.
