Mixing Up the Menu?

Since moving in with E over a year ago, the hardest part of our week to week living has been coming up with creative items for our dinners. We work opposite schedules, so on the weekends we generally cook a lot of food so that we have plenty of leftovers to see us through.

I have been searching high and low for some inspiration this week and I think I just stumbled on to a genius (and oh so simple) recipe:

INGREDIENTS:2-4 Steaks (whatever cut of meat you like is fine.
3T. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
3T. Water1T. Fresh Cilantro Leaves, chopped
1 Small Jalapeno Pepper, chopped and seeded
2 Garlic Cloves, pressed
1/4t. Ground Cumin

Directions:Combine lime juice, cilantro, water, jalapeno pepper, garlic and cumin and pour into a large zip-top plastic bag.
Add steaks, seal and shake bag to coat meat.
Let marinate in refrigerator 1-2 hours,shaking bag every now and then.
Grill steaks over medium heat until cooked to your liking, turning once.
Serve and enjoy.
