Menu Of The Week


On the weekend I like Dh to grill (it gives me a break or if I am feeling like cooking then I can make a more elaborate meal). With the end of summer coming and the bounty of veggies this time of year I am eager to make lots of veggie dishes. You could easily leave out the steak and still have a wonderful meal. I saw this recipes for the stuffed zucchini with gazpacho sauce and thought that was perfect for this time of year. If it sounds like to much work you could make the zucchini without the sauce or make the sauce and serve over a quick veggi stir-fry. I wanted to say I did not bother par-boiling the zucchini. That seems like to much work for me and an unnecessary step. I just cooked it about 35 minutes and it was fine. Serve this with a simple grilled steak, some corn on the cob and a bottle of merlot, perfect. Ohh well it is not perfect till you have dessert. Since that grill is all ready fired up grill some fruit. If you really want to make it extra special ahead of time make some cornmeal cookies to. Now that is perfect !!!

Simple Grilled Steak.

I just rub my steak with olive oil, some finely chopped rosemary and garlic, salt and pepper.


Grilled Corn with Lemon Basil Butter

If you do not know how to grill corn, here is info.

Lemon Basil butter

Mix one stick of soften butter with 5 leaves of basil, finely chopped and zest from one lemon.

Stuffed Zucchini with Gazpacho Sauce

Dessert Grilled Fruit

just take fruit like halved peaches, plums, nectarines. Sliced pineapple or halved bananas. Based with honey and grill till honey starts to caramelizes. A minute or two.

I like fall veggies too Clarice, and I have gobs of zucchini just now. Too bad my family is not so fond of it. They do love steaks tho!
