Fruity Goodness


This weekend, we wanted to try something new with our Kansas City strips. We were feeling adventurous so we put the kids to bed and began our journey.

Little did we know our grill had already decided it had grilled its last steak — the LAST TIME we had steaks.

So after many attempts to light it we decided to call our neighbor Eddie and beg to borrow his grill. He wasn’t home but he said it was okay to use it. So my husband braved the darkness and grilled our strips by flashlight in our neighbor’s yard.

It was around 9:30 pm by this time.

I prepared the rest of the meal and when he came back with our steaks it all seemed worth it.

We used the Citrus-Maple Marinade I mentioned in yesterday’s post. It was so yummy and the fruit flavor was not overwhelming. It was just right.

Here it is in all its glory . . .


There’s not much we wouldn’t do for a steak. It is a good thing we asked permission first because it could have been ugly when Eddie came home and saw a dark figure grilling in his back yard.

All’s well that ends well, right???
