Sizzlin’ Summer Steak

Since I am already picturing summer in my head, I have been craving some steak.

There’s nothing more relaxing than hanging outside with your loved ones chatting away with a light, warm summer breeze. Summer is my favorite season (as if you hadn’t noticed) because I love that I can finally have a break from school, so there’s no stress about homework, papers, or finals.

In the summer my schedule is unpredictable, actually even calling it a schedule is wrong, I like to NOT plan my day and go with the flow; it’s my chance to be spontaneous.

I am making my goal to be more adventurous for the upcoming summer.

What’s your goal for the summer?

Anyway…back to the steak! 

When choosing steak I go with the leanest cut, but I also enjoy those with nice marbling (fat going through the steak that resembles a marble or marble counter tops, I know the last one is a weird comparison, bear with me).

Then I season it with McCormick’s Fiery Pepper seasoning because it’s my favorite! It gives the steak amazing color, and flavor.

After seasoning I hand it off to the guys so they can grill it. I’ve had a bad experience with grills involving burnt eyelashes (hint, hint).

Can you say A-MAZING!

Once it’s done, you’ll want to wait until you cut it so the natural juices stay inside and keep the meat nice and juicy.

This was my brother's plate. I gobbled down mine before I could snap a picture.

Tropical Smoothie

Summer is right around the corner and I have a delicious tropical smoothie recipe!

Here’s what you’ll need:

(Note: I don’t like exact measurements, I free-hand everything)

  • A blender
  • 1 Handful of kale
  • About 1/2 cup of diced pineapple
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 orange
Fact: I LOVE my NutriBullet!

You can also add banana, strawberries, or even avocado for an extra creamy drink!

Place kale, pineapple, orange into the blender, along with 1/3 of cup of the coconut milk and a little water, and blend away friends!

The outcome: A super tastymakes-youwanttotakeatriptoHawaiiorsomewheretropical blended drink, and in the summer I suggest you add ice for an extra coolness factor.

Oh Yeah!!
