Summer is in full swing, and I cannot believe we are approaching the end of July. What? Before we know it, it’s going to be Back to School time and life will get crazy again. What’s more fun over the summer than a good summer vacation. It often doesn’t matter where you go at all, just as long as you spend time as a family. We have one more big trip scheduled before the end of summer.
When we travel, we like staying at hotels and extended stay places that have kitchens, because we save money on eating out. I love being able to cook in my room and not have to spend a fortune on a restaurant for all of us.
In the hot summer months, even when I am at home, I hate heating my kitchen up. We already battle the heat, so why make it worse? Anything that can be made quickly and in a single skillet makes me smile. This One Skillet Steak Fajita dish is SUPER easy and can be made all in one skillet on a stove or even over a campfire. This makes it the perfect meal for your travels in a hotel room with a kitchen, camping or even just at home to keep the house from heating up.
