Whew – I am feeling a lot better right now - I was super stressed all day. Just had more things to do than minutes in the day. What stressed me out even more was knowing that my to-do list after work was just as long. Well, I left work a little bit early, got all my errands done and came home to have an early dinner with Ben. I feel so much better knowing that most everything is done, and I just have 2 more major things I have to accomplish before I go to bed:
- PACK! Yep, this girl’s going on a trip!
- I’ll show you tomorrow!
Luckily, the type A in me had a handy list made with everything I needed to get done today. I can’t wait to cross these last two things off
I am happy to report that it was an absolutely gorgeous day out today - so gorgeous in fact, that a two hour meeting I had this morning, was held outside – nice!! The evening was just as nice, and was absolutely screaming summer to me – so I fired up my trusty grill and made an incredibly easy, fast, and quick to clean up dinner: Grilled Steak, freshly steamed Green Beans and grilled Corn on the Cob!
I seasoned my steaks on both sides with some grill seasoning and let them cook on the grill for about 5 minutes a side. Right next to them, I placed my corn on the cobs and rotated them every 3 minutes or so. The corn was making a hilarious PoPpInG noise the entire time it was cooking and I was certain each time I opened the lid to the grill to rotate them, that I would have popcorn, but nope – it was just the cobs cracklin’ away.
While the grill was working its magic, I steamed some fresh green beans on the stove. Look at that steam! I almost steamed my ring finger off, actually…ouch! Worth it though – fresh, crisp green beans are one of my favorite things about summer.
Oh grilled corn on the cob – I love you so much! If you’ve never made corn this way – you’ve really got to try it. There is literally NO cleanup involved in preparing it and the smokey sweet taste is out of this world!
My steak was grilled to perfection and was just as tender as could be – nothing says summer like a grilled steak!
I am perfectly satisfied right now – which doesn’t happen often. I’m one of those people that literally HAS to have something sweet after dinner every night – but that corn was sooo sweet that it’s honestly taken away my desire for a treat…well, for now anyways…
Ok guys, I’m off to finish my last two tasks of the day. Wish me luck!
