crisp and cool al fresco dining…

After a night full of delectable desserts, what better way to end the weekend than with an absolutely stellar weather day, a glass of wine [ok ok more than a glass] and grilling some beautiful pieces of meat!
Homemade corn relish, a vibrant green salad chock full of healthy add-ins, along with some thick, meaty goodness…
The relish was sweet and spicy, the salad… earthy and crisp, while the meat… well how better to describe than juicy and succulent with an intense meaty flavor that literally oozed with each perfect mouthwatering bite!
I’m looking forward to many cool, fall evenings of grilling and enjoying the outside weather, and being able to share them with all of you!

Al fresco dining!!

Tonight was the first night of al fresco dining of the season with my honey… after a day of power washing and cleaning, it was a must to take advantage of sitting outside and enjoying the summer-like weather!
On the menu were hamburgers made from ground filet mignon and top round. The burgers were prepped no-frills in order to relish in the meaty goodness… just simple salt and pepper! A total of six minutes on an open grill with searing flames, one slice of cheddar, onion and a salsa made up of a mix of diced veg, olives, corn and black beans on a toasted bun. Dinner was close to served…
For a side, homemade pasta salad and for some salty crunch… kettle cooked chips! A light, warm breeze and dinner was ready to be savored…
