How to Make Friends: BumbleBFF

How to Make Friends: BumbleBFF

Both Karen and I are Austin transplants (just like 90% of Austin now-a-days) and know the feeling of needing a way to meet new friends.  Sometimes as an adult, you might find yourself searching for how to meet people in a new city.

Either way, we were excited to do some slow cooking when having family over for dinner the other day. This recipe was sweet, savory, and the perfect way to feed a crowd.

Coca Cola Steak Marinade

Coca Cola Steak Marinade

Making a marinade is super weird. You mix a bunch of stuff together, add meat and hope for the best. We were planning on making this marinade the night before family was coming over to celebrate Gavin’s birthday.

Karen set her alarm bright and early, woke up in a haze and started creating the marinade. We’re surprised that she even remembered to write down the recipe, and were SHOCKED when tasted the finish product and it… was… awesome.
