Welcome to week 3 of our Summer BBQ and Road Trip series! Today I am sharing this yummy recipe for Orange Marinated Steak with Buttered Mushrooms. When it comes to summer cooking, I am all about easy prep work. It is far too hot to stand over a hot stove for long periods of time. Summer is all about getting outside. Go for a bike ride, hit the beach, read a book, enjoy the long days. This recipe is simple to make. Throw the ingredients together, let the steaks marinate, then grill them up and you are good to go. The acid in the orange and in the Sprite make the steak juicy and delicious with minimal prep time! Tossing mushrooms in a little bit of flavor adds great flavor and texture to the steak.

I am getting our balcony set up for our summer evenings looking out at the bay. I just picked up some adorable Adirondack chairs in hot pink and bright green, but am still looking for a great outdoor rug.  Let me know if anyone has any suggestions!

Do you have a special summer set up for al fresco dining in the summer?
