4th Of July Weekend

Well we had my wonderful family at our place for 4th of July. And if my family knows how to do's EAT GOOD FOOD! :-) I have no particular great recipe in this post, but the meal was so yummy and "pretty" I just had to post a picture. It was great! Great food, great conversation, great memories! LOVE YOU FAMILY! (missed you bobby!)

Steak: We generally always use the same marinade for our steaks. This particular steak is a ribeye...which is what I usually buy as they are nice and tender. We marinade them in Worcestershire Sauce, Cavender's, Salt, Pepper, and minced garlic (or garlic powder). I have no measurements we just eyeball it. Rub the steaks with all these ingrediants and let sit in marinade for atleast 4 hours for best results. Grill and ENJOY! (We've tried other marinades, but always go back to this one)

Grilled Veggies: We just chopped up some of our favorite veggies, coated them in olive oil, salt, and pepper and threw them on the grill in a grill pan. Delish!

Sweet Potatoe Hash: I love this one. It's a great alternative to mashed potatoes. Much healthier. You just cut your sweet potatoes into bite size pieces. Chop 1 onion into the same size pieces. Heat your skillet, add olive oil. Throw in potatoes and onion. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Here's the twist...add cinnamin and sugar! I'm telling ya it's wonderful! We always have a cinn/sugar shaker so I just shake it over the mixture and pop a lid on the pan; stirring occasionally until potatoes are soft.

Grilled Pineapple: Just threw some pineapple on skewers and grilled. Makes them nice and sweet.
