Wow, Houston turned up the heat. It is definitely summer and even though it feels like 1,000 degrees in the shade, this is my favorite time to be outdoors. There are so many fun things to do here Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments and many of them are best enjoyed on beautiful summer days.
There are the two pools, of course, lushly landscaped to transport you to the tropics. The reflection lake and running trail are great places to get in the miles, not too far from the refreshing AC in your home.
But my favorite thing to do in the summer is grill out and here at Alexan Auburn Lakes, there are plenty of places to cook outdoors. From grills to a campfire, you can make a complete and delicious meal.
Here’s what’s on the menu tonight: Grilled chicken marinated with lemon juice, onion powder, black pepper and parsley. 30 minutes on the grill and you have the juiciest, tastiest chicken ever. I’ll be pairing it with corn also tossed on the grill in husks. If you’ve never had it, here’s a good recipe to get you started.
After dinner comes my favorite part of the grilled meal: s'mores. My dad had the perfect technique for making them. Using a marshmallow roasting stick, you heat two marshmallows to a perfect golden brown. Once they’re just about to fall off the stick, you quickly put them on one half of a graham cracker, slide the chocolate in between the marshmallows and squish the other half of the cracker on top. So delicious.
It may be hot outside but there are so many cool things to do at Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments, the summer will be gone before you know it.
