My Favorite Summertime BBQ Recipe!

My Favorite Summertime BBQ Recipe!

I love the summer!  Yes, I know it's hot and the mosquitoes can be a pain in the butt, but I REALLY enjoy sitting outside and enjoying a great meal with friends and/or family.  It was hard for me nail down what exactly my favorite summertime dish is.  Everything my husband, John, cooks on the grill is wonderful.  After some serious thought, I determined that grilled chipotle rubbed steaks with some lime butter was at the top of my list.  You can click here for the complete recipe.  I highly recommend using some thick-cut rib eyes, especially if you like a juicy medium rare steak like I do.  Also, some fresh lime juice and garlic cloves make all the difference in the world when preparing this.  John said to make sure your grill temperature is at least 500 degrees and sear the outside of the steaks to get some char that makes a steak great.  For medium rare, the meat shouldn't be on the grill any longer than 10 to 11 minutes.  It's a fairly quick and easy recipe that tastes amazing!
 
 
As I had mentioned, I really love being outside during the summer.  If you're like me in this regard, it's important you have space in your yard that allows you to enjoy the outdoors and relax.  It doesn't have to be fancy or huge, but it does have to allow you to decompress after a long day.  Some affordable suggestions for creating your "summer outdoor sanctuary" are adding comfortable chairs that allow you to recline, planting perennials that bloom with your favorite colors, laying pavers to create a custom patio or make an existing one better, installing a fire pit and/or having a large enough patio table for several guests or family to eat at.  The ultimate goal is to feel like you're on vacation in your backyard.
