College football season has started and personally I’m pretty excited.  No matter your alma matter, there is nothing quite like freezing your britches off at a college football game with thousands of your classmates yelling the fight song at the top of their lungs, especially when coffee is involved.  I have been a football fan since I was a little girl that liked the Green Bay packers only because my cousin Matt did and I wanted to be cool like him.  This recipe is great for a Saturday of watching college football! Get excited, put on your ORANGE shirt and head to the grill!

Easy Steak & Taters
1 flank steak
1/2 Sliced onion
1 Sliced bell pepper
1 Sliced Sweet Potato
1 Sliced jalapeno
1 Zucchini
1 Sliced Stick of Butter
Salt, Pepper, & Creole Seasoning

DISCLAIMER…. Ryan came up with this.  Another one of those just use what you have in the fridge, then it wont cost anything meals.  It turned out pretty well, and doesn’t involve spray cheese, so I gave it a try.  Rub the flank steak with salt, pepper and creole seasoning.  Then let it rest while you slice the vegetables.  Place the sliced vegetables in your iron skillet with the butter.  Take both the flank steak and the skillet of vegetables to the grill and let cook until the steak is to your desired degree of doneness.  Cook the vegetables until they are tender.  Slice the steak against the grain, serve and enjoy!  Very simple, easy, and filling.  Great for an afternoon of football.
