I have a love hate relationship with summer. I really do love summer and we are having the best summer. Long hours playing in the sun, long days at the pool, vacations planned, a few camping trips coming up, and many many barbeque's.

But at the same time I'm feeling so overwhelmed. I have so much on my plate, so many obligations. After all, I am the mom. Who do you think plans, organizes, and executes all the summer fun? Mom does, of course! And that's the part I really hate some times.

I know it's worth it! Summer is worth it! I mean this is what I've been waiting for all winter. I just need to commit to the love, despite all the hard work. Because there really are sooo many things to love!

Like this recipe for one! I like to grill all year round, but it so much more fun in the summer. The last couple weeks I've been experimenting with all kinds of marinates, and this is one we have deemed a new favorite! It is absolutely amazing!! You really really need to try it.

I cubed my steak, marinated it, and made shish kabobs with fresh veggies. I can't wait until the veggies can be fresh from my garden.

(Mindi Original)

½ C. honey
½ C. lime
½ C. Balsamic Vinegar

Marinades make meat so much more flavorful and tender. This one sounds almost tropical. Have you tried this one salmon?
