Tomahawk Steak Carne AsadaRarely do I feel as if I could take on Bobby Flay or Giada De Laurentiis. But I have discovered a secret weapon for busy mothers who haven’t been to the grocery store alone in nearly a decade, let alone had time to develop unique Mexican sauces in a traditional style. In my household, my partner is BBQ grill-obsessed, and our new Weber has been a huge success. While he grills, my roll is to prepare veggies and sauces – between kids, laundry, working and filling out a myriad of school permission slips! So I must admit that I don’t do everything from (ahem) scratch.

Here’s how we went Mexican Gourmet using tomahawk steaks:

Tacos are the new darling of the culinary world, and they help to inspire creativity, variety and healthfulness in our kids.  Not only fun and healthy as a meal, but fish tacos can help kids learn about sustainability in the seafood industry.  Parents can help their children learn more about the importance of sustainable seafood on the interactive www.oceansfortomorrow.com website sponsored by President’s Choice/Loblaws, who have made a commitment to sell only sustainable seafood products by the end of 2013. The link “school of fish” includes a list of fish at risk, a ‘did you know’ section, more recipes that kids will love, and tips for parents to help even their picky eater like to eat more fish.
