Grilling Season

I love, love anything and everything cooked on the grill and even though we keep our grill out year round {and do occasionally fire it up during the colder months}, it is now officially grilling season here at our house! I bought some nice steaks yesterday and checked online for a good marinade recipe. Here is the one I decided on......and it was sooooooo good!!!

MARINADE
3T. soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. garlic powder
1 T. dried basil
2 t. parsley flakes
1/2 t. pepper
2-3 dashes hot sauce
1 clove minced garlic {see note below}

Whisk together in a bowl, then pour over steaks {in gallon size ziploc bag}. Refrigerate for several hours.

Note: I have started buying minced garlic in a jar instead a cloves of garlic. I always seem to waste so much when I buy a whole clove, and the jarred garlic is ready to use!

I didn't get pictures of my finished meal, but trust me, the steaks were d-e-l-i-s-h!
I'm trying to branch out from the normal burgers and hot dogs, so last year I bought a grill pan, which I loved for grilling veggies, and we also plan on grilling fish, shrimp, and scallops this year. I didn't have a picture of the pan I bought, so I copied one from the web.
This one is Williams-Sonoma ($100), mine actually came from Walmart ($19) LOL but it basically does the same thing! If you are serious about grilling, you gotta have a grill pan.
I also really want to try my hand at grilled pizza, so I'm looking for a pizza grill pan. This one will probably do the trick....
GrillPro Pizza Grill Pan - $10.99
Here's a link on how to grill pizza. I've pinned a few pizza recipes on Pinterest I can't wait to try.
Don't they look yummy!? Speaking of yummy, I even found a dessert recipe for the grill....

The marinade sounds delicious!!! I've already got chicken out for butter chicken tonight but if I hadn't I would be heading to the supermarket to get steak! x
