Grilling in Sedona, AZ , 6.29.2009

July 15, 2009

Costco is amazing. Monday after the big birthday dinner, I went out to Sedona, AZ with the family that was able to extend their stay in the Southwest. There were 13 of us in all in two condos at Sedona Summit. Before heading out there, we stopped by Costco in Albuquerque and packed a couple coolers full of food. Three days worth of meals for 13 people…that’s a lot of food. The condos had nice grills, so we got some steaks, a pork loin, some chicken and some salmon to throw on there. Yum.

In addition to all the protein, we got some flour tortillas, (convenient for to-go wraps using leftover BBQ), some pre-washed salad, fruit, potatoes, and onions. Simple, well-balanced meals–great for when you’re traveling. And way better than eating out for every meal.

For the steaks, we just put some salt and pepper on them. We also had some leftover “Spicy Sprinkle” packets from Church’s (only the BEST fried chicken on earth), so we used some spicy sprinkle on half the steaks for those that wanted a little kick. The salmon was just pan-fried. Potatoes were tossed in olive oil, salt, and pepper and baked at 400F for about 40 min. Chicken was marinated in a soy ginger marinade (again, courtesy of Costco). Salad was premade and prewashed. I just added some cucumber, yellow and red cherry tomatoes, olives, and feta. Costco costco costco.

The steak was a big hit; we ended up stopping at the grocery store in Sedona to pick up some more for the next night. The next night we also grilled up a premarinated pork loin from Costco. Believe me, no one went hungry on this trip.
