Do you plan your weekends? Do you set aside time for just you and the love of your life? Dining out is terrific, sometimes, but nothing is more enjoyable than going out on the patio or deck on a Summer's evening and grilling out a good steak. Have you ever been outside and your neighbor is the one doing the grilling, while the fragrant aroma wafts across the fence? Makes me hungry just imagining this. Growing up, Daddy loved to reserve Saturday night for our "grill night!" I think he mostly enjoyed the family time, a good scotch and easy conversation....a time to catch up with what everyone had been doing throughout the week. It is a memory I cherish! I know we have continued that tradition and over the years, it has become a really great, "date night!"

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 t. ground pepper
1 t. salt
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons dry ground mustard
1/3 cup lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl. Place 4 medium Rib Eye steaks in a zip lock gallon bag and pour marinade over the steaks. Let the steaks marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours, even better for about eight hours. When ready to grill, let the steaks sit at room temperature for about one hour. Remove the steaks from the marinade and grill to your preference!  This is a favorite Saturday night dinner, which we serve with baked Yukon Gold and Sweet Potatoes, a crispy Italian Salad and hot French bread. Light the candles, pour a glass of wine, and create some good conversation.....what a fabulous date night!
