I used to be able to get away with 3 steaks when we were grilling. Wes and I would each get one, and split the biggest one in three for the kids. Those days are over. Now my boys (and girl) are requiring their own steak. Who knew that people so little could eat so much? It seems like they are eating me out of house and home these days. I have been having to buy in bulk to keep up! I have a friend that does almost all of her grocery shopping at Sam’s. I never understood why she needed to buy such large quantities of food at one time. I totally get it now. And I am so sorry for giving you such a hard time about it.
Over the weekend, I went to Sam’s to buy steaks and vegetable groceries. While I was there, I picked up some gorgeous strip steaks and asparagus. I got home and made a simple marinade from Troy Blacks’ new book All Fired Up. I prepped my asparagus and potatoes, and 15 minutes later, I was able to enjoy the rest of my day. That is what I love about grilling. The hard work is done before you even start cooking. Click here for the full recipe!
