The first part of the May trip at our vacation home is quite the adjustment as we are coming off of a four month schedule of up at 3:30 AM and into be by 8 PM. Suddenly we are thrust back into somewhat normal hours without any time to get used to the change. We generally spend the first few days of our trip rather low keyed and relaxed. The second day of any of our Florida vacations is always grilled steak. The Publix there has a nice meat counter so we buy a couple of extra thick cut steaks. There is always enough steak left over for snacking and another meal!
Basic Method: Heat about a teaspoon of olive oil and a little butter in a non-stick fry pan. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until onions start to caramelize. Add the zucchini pieces. Cook, stirring often until zucchini is tender. Remove from heat and serve.
For the steak and zucchini stir fry modification, I added fresh green beans with the zucchini. Once the vegetables were tender, I stirred in slices of left over steak cooking just to warm through. The result was a delicious, quick to prepare stir fry to enjoy on the lanai while chatting about our plans for the rest of our vacation. The following day we would be picking up my husband's sister and her son. They would be staying with us for four days so we were excited about the days to come.
