Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

The marinade is pretty delicious as is, but you can always add a little more cayenne if you need an extra kick. I find that a strong side dish really complements the meat which is why we like it with mixed grilled vegetables or something like broccoli rabe.

Naptime Stopwatch

Preparing this marinade takes about 10 minutes, then just put the meat in the fridge and enjoy the rest of the afternoon!

Naptime Reviews

My daughter doesn’t eat these cuts of meat yet, especially after the mouth incident two weeks ago. But, needless to say, the rest of us devoured it.
