My (thoughtful, smart, caring, competitive, handsome & amazing) son celebrated his birthday recently and asked that his party invitation state "Be ready to kick butt". His slogan matched the venue which was a paintball party. In keeping with the theme, he chose the subsequent thank you card and photo with the slogan "Thank you for helping me kick butt". As a Mom concerned about the world around us I contemplated his slogan choice for a bit and decided to "roll" with it. It isn't the slogan that I would choose, but then again, I'm not and have never been a tween boy. As these moments pass I find myself admiring his unique spirit, realizing how fast (too fast) time is going by & reminding myself to let him be himself. I found this quote on Pinterest and it serves as a little reminder for me to reflect upon.

My son loves this meal and so I found it fitting to name the meal "Kick Butt Teriyaki Beef".
- 1 1/2 ground beef
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Bragg's or soy sauce
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- a few dashes of red pepper flakes
- pepper to taste
- sesame seeds to garnish
- green onion, thinly sliced to garnish
- Serve over cooked rice
Pan fry the ground beef and minced garlic until cooked. Drain fat. Place back in the fry pan and add Bragg's, red pepper flakes and pepper. Toss well, adding a little extra Bragg's to create more sauce.
Place cooked hot rice in a bowl. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle sesame seeds and green onions on top and serve.
It's that easy! And yes, this meal Kick's Butt!!
