Grilled steak and grilled corn

The long wait for summer to arrive for good ended this past weekend. It was the first weekend of extended outdoor activities. It was the first weekend of seeking shade from the hot sun. It was the first weekend for grilling. Now, I've already called on the services of my grill this spring and I know many who grill all year-round. But, it's not same as grilling, out in the hot sun, simultaneously battling the fieriness of the flames jumping toward you.

I don't know about you, but I love Tex-Mex food! Sure, I enjoy and have appreciation for regional Mexican cuisine but there's a level of comfort in "south of the border" favorites such as burritos, ground beef tacos, a plate of nachos, and fajitas! Also, the weather was fantastic in Chicago today so I knew it was time to wake the grill out of its hibernation slumber and put it to work.
