... a trip to the lake

We decided to take an impromptu trip to the lake for the weekend and it turned out to be the best decision.  Bright blue sunny skies and super clear water of the perfect temperature, you really can't beat Tablerock Lake... even the dogs agree!

Since it was just the two of us and we only had one night, we decided to do dinner up right.  A couple of filets, fresh veggies and delicious multi-grain bread.  

When you're at the lake, you might as well take advantage of the great weather and views and cook on the grill.  Enjoy a cold beverage while the coals are firing up and in no time you'll have a great meal to celebrate a great day.

Taylor's Notes:

There really isn't much of a recipe here and although it was a perfect meal for the lake, it could be made just as easily and deliciously right in your own backyard.  Kudos to you if your backyard is a lake!  Sigh...  

The steaks came from Price Chopper (Certified Angus bacon-wrapped filets from the butcher) that we just added a little olive oil and s&p to before throwing them on the grill.  Toss green beans and sliced baby bella mushrooms with sliced garlic cloves, olive oil and s&p and wrap in foil.  The steaks only took about 10 minutes on each side - for medium - and the veggies took about 10 minutes total.  We sliced and buttered the bread, wrapped it in foil and placed it on the grill, too, for about 15 minutes.
