Tuscan Steak and Potatoes

Father’s Day is right around the corner (June 19), and well let’s face it, you’re probably JUST about ready to start thinking about that perfect gift for him.  My advice to you is this: keep it simple! Give Dad the gift of a full (and satisfied!) stomach this Father’s Day.  What he really wants is steak!

With that, the team at Marcia Selden Catering & Events has shared the perfect recipe with us.  Now, if you insist on getting dad (another!) tie, that’s alright, too! This recipe is great all year round!
