I LOVE February days in the 60's. It's the glimmer of hope that I cling to that spring is right around the corner. One sunny afternoon is all is takes for me to pack away my winter sweaters and break out the sandals. I also love grilling without my winter jacket.
Apparently, Mia loves warm winter days as well.
And of course, the very first thing that she does on a warm day is to roll around in the grass on top of her rock.
60 degree temperatures + a rock = 1 happy dog.
I would like to say that I plan my grilled meals based on the weather but the truth is, I plan my menu so far in advance that most nights, I just take whatever weather is thrown at me. (Which is why I end up grilling in the rain quite often.) Fortunately the weather worked in my favor last week and I had a beautiful, sunny evening to grill my Hawaiian Marinated Flank Steak from theclevercarrot.com.
Hawaiian Marinated Flank Steak
1 1/2 -2 pounds flank steak
1/2 bottle teriyaki
1 cup pineapple juice
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
2 sprigs rosemary
Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
Not sure how to describe this steak to do it justice other than to say that it was BY FAR the best flavored flank steak that I have ever had. Seriously delicious marinade.
My family ate their steak in taco form. I served it with whole wheat tortillas, fresh salsa and sliced avocado. Super yummy.
