BBQ steak sweet potato & squash

I hope you are staying safe and healthy! We are living in such a weird time right now which none of us have ever seen before I do hope we can get back to some sort of normal before too long. I am coming up on week seven for working at home. It’s actually going really well I think having my daughter working next to me helps even though she works for a different company. Last week to break up the groundhog day feel of it we held spirit week. Animal print Monday, crazy hair Tuesday you get the picture. We had a lot of fun! We’ll have to come up with something else since we are home until at least June if not longer.

It’s about time we start getting outside and take the cover off the grill. We have only had a few nice enough days though I will grill even when it’s not so nice. I do recall one very rainy night several years ago where my very good friend was holding an umbrella over me and I think there was a flash light as well? I know there were drinks involved and apparently whatever we were cooking HAD to be cooked out on the grill 🙂

This isn’t out on the patio yet but I hope it will be soon!

This is a great any night meal, it comes together very quickly and doesn’t take long to cook and then you are eating within the hour. Plus clean up is just as fast and it tastes great. I am so looking forward to getting my garden in. We learned our lessen years ago to not plant until Memorial Day (the last weekend in May) we have lost too many plants to that one last frost after Mother’s Day which used to be our planting day. I have already started some seeds in the house; which I haven’t done in years. Let’s hope that works.

As long as the raw meat doesn’t touch the tray; you can use it to take everything off the grill

For some veggies I find it easier to put on tinfoil or you can use a veggie tray made for the grill or one of those copper grill mats. I have lost a fair few potatoes or veggies through the grates over the years.

I use a little tinfoil so I don’t lose the veggies

Steak – you cannot go wrong with Ribeyes
Squash – whichever kind you like or both
Sweet potato or whatever you have on hand
Large Onion peeled and sliced
Olive Oil
Black Pepper
Kosher Salt

You still get grill marks even while using tinfoil

That’s it!  Take the steaks out before you start anything else, they are best when the come to room temperature; season liberally with Salt and Pepper and put aside.
Start the grill, Slice the veggies and potatoes. Season those with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Grab a sheet pan or whatever you use when you grill and head outside. I have a little plastic basket I put all the supplies I need like the plates, utensils and tinfoil etc. And I usually only have to come back in to refill my wine.

Stay safe Stay strong and Stay healthy!!!!

BBQ Steak, Sweet Potato & Squash

My family has re-discovered the outside patio area. We; well actually I wanted a sitting area on the patio. Not just any sitting area I wanted someplace where we can; after a long hard day of working we could sit and relax comfortably. I finally pulled the trigger on an outdoor couch and we LOVE it!  We make plans of when we could meet, what we are going to drink and who has to get up and make dinner.

Looks pretty comfortable huh? 

With the nights already getting shorter meals have to be something quick to throw together just so no one has to be away from lounging on the patio for too long. What fun would it be if I spent an hour in the kitchen while they are out there chilling out. No fun at all.

Here is something so surprisingly delicious but so crazy easy that anyone can make this meal and you won’t hear any complaints from the loungers
