I have created a sample of what it is going to look like and so far everyone seems on board with the design logo (courtesy of Melissa) and lettering. I have been trying to figure out an easy way to order these for everyone and I just think if I order all of them myself, it may get a bit crazy with trying to get people to send me the money, etc. I was going to set up a “Bettie Account” for everyone to use but then realized that would not be a good idea with everyone’s credit cards stored in the same spot. Therefore, I came to the conclusion we can do this one of two ways:
Option 1: Create an account on www.customizedgirl.com and design it yourself. Most of it is self-explanatory but you will need to have a picture of the logo and know what font/color to use for the lettering. I will put instructions below. The only thing I ask if you are going to wear this to MegaFest I’d like the shirt itself be black so we will all have the same color and be able to stand out as a group.
Option 2: Create an account on www.customizedgirl.com and send me your login information so I can design the shirt of your choice. Then after I am done of course, you can change your password and order it yourself.
If you aren’t going to MegaFest, you are still more than welcome to buy a shirt, and obviously those who are going are not obligated to buy one. I just thought it would be something fun for us to do.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPTION 1: (all lettering is in SILVER)
1. Choose the type of shirt you would like (tee, tank, etc) then the color black
2. Front of shirt: Line one: Boondock; Line two: Betties; Font=”Beyond Sky”; Font size=30
3. Click “upload image” to upload the logo from your computer to the shirt. (Logo is the Boondock Betties’ Facebook avatar)
4. Back of shirt: Line one: WE BACK UP (font size 16); Line two: OUR (font size 19); Line three: SAINTS! (font size 23); Font style for all lettering on back= “Storybook”
If you need to, please save a copy of the sample I put up on the Betties’ Facebook page to use as a guide to make sure you get the correct spacing for the letters and where the logo will go.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me on Facebook or Twitter (Drea0208) or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you!!!!! xoxoxoxo
You had to know this was coming! My fellow Boondock Betties and Boondock Saints fans will know what a “whoop ass fajita” is but the rest of you, most likely not. In the Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day film, one of the funniest lines came from the character Romeo (played by Clifton Collins, Jr.) who yells “who ordered the whoop ass fajitas???” as the brothers killed one of the Italian mobsters. This is one of the most quoted lines from the sequel so it was only fitting an actual recipe was born out of it! And the combination of the hot sauce and hot peppers will surely whoop your ass!
1lb. Skirt steak
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup hot sauce
Juice of one lime
2 garlic cloves, minced
Sliced peppers (assorted sweet and hot) and onions
Tortillas (any flavor, I used whole wheat)
And as I always say, please excuse the lack of creativity in my photos- a food stylist I am not! lol
Place steak in a container (or large food storage bag) and add the salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce, lime juice, and garlic. Cover and store in refrigerator 6-8 hours.
Cook steak on either an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan according to package directions. Because the steak is rather thin, it took about 5 min per side for medium rare. Cook a bit longer if you prefer it medium to well-done. Once steak is finished cooking, remove from grill and allow to rest about 10 min (so the juices redistribute). The onions and peppers can be cooked on the outdoor grill as well or you can saute them on the stove in a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds (or lightly toast on grill). Once steak has rested, slice into one-inch thick strips- assemble by putting a few slices of the steak, onions, and peppers inside the tortilla. I also added some shredded cheese (as I can’t have Mexican without cheese!) and homemade guacamole. You can serve these WHOOP ASS fajitas with rice, beans, or a simple salad. YUM!
