I haven’t known what to expect weather wise here in my new state of Alabama. I felt like the summer would never end. It. Was. So. Hot!! Add in the end of my pregnancy and it was a big change for me. My husband kept telling me how nice the fall would be and how much I would like it. A few weeks ago I was thinking he was crazy, still shorts and tanks and hot, hot, hot. I kept telling my mom and grandma to pack for hot weather on their trip about a week ago and be prepared for a shock! Well they got here and it was amazing weather. So comfortable and crisp! It for sure feels like fall and I am loving it! It’s even been a bit chilly and I had to find jackets for the kids which I wasn’t as prepared for as I like, but now I am shifting into fall and super excited for it.
I am more of a semi-homemade cook most days. Even more so now with two kids; I just don’t have time everyday for the more complex things. As I was planning out meals this week, I wanted something warm, totally tasty, and easy. We have been in a little bit of a food rut lately so I have been making a list of meals we like to easily pull from so we don’t keep rotating the same old stuff. While working on the list, I remembered a meal I used to make when I was living with a roommate, before I ever met my husband. After telling him about the meal, he said I had never made anything like that for him. It’s a shame really because it is so easy, pretty cheap and oh so tasty.
This is great for camping and on a grill but to be honest, we aren’t campers or outdoorsy folks and we sold our grill before we moved. So I went the old way I used to in my old apartment just out of high school and it was even better than I remember. Stephen took one bite and said, oh wow that’s a lot of flavor! I’ll admit it looks pretty simple but looks can be deceiving and in this case they totally are. Stephen finished up the meal with a sigh, leaned back in his chair and letting out a genuine “mmmm”. He told me to add it to the list!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Layout some foil. Put the raw meat on the foil. Pour the worcestershire sauce over the meat, 1/2 the BBQ sauce and salt and pepper.
Add on the veggies. Drizzle olive oil and remaining BBQ sauce over the top.
Fold over the foil and close up the packet, like so. Place on a pan incase there is a leak so it doesn’t spill into the bottom of the oven.
Bake for about 45 minutes. Check the meat and be sure there is no pink! Once everything is cooked, mix everything up and cut up the meat.
Then you are ready to serve it up and enjoy!
Look at that steamy goodness. What a warm and delicious way to kick of the fall!
