Summer Sunday supper!!

With Sunday supper on my mind, and finally some sunny [yet über humid] weather upon us I felt the need to marinate some sexy flank steak and then toss onto the grill! To serve up alongside, a beautiful tossed salad with a homemade balsamic dressing and some beautiful grilled asparagus.
The salad was just a mix of crisp romaine, sliced roasted red peppers, a diced shallot and homemade stuffed mozz! As for the asparagus, just a toss in some homemade infused olive oil and salt.
Once grilled and rested, the steak and sides were ready to eat up and enjoy… thrilled that there is a bit of leftovers for some lunch tomorrow!!

combo meal in one…

Who says you can’t have your pizza and salad, and eat it too! Tonight I was craving a simple chopped salad full of walnuts, cranberries and pungent blue cheese chunks, but at the same time I really wanted pizza! So I thought why not take those two cravings and marry them into a pizza salad! The hot thin crust with a light touch of sauce became the bed for my luscious salad, and as soon as I took the first bite I knew leftovers were not in my future… and boy oh boy was I right, other than the few crumbs left on my plate it was clear this dish was mine and only mine.

tonight we went for seconds…

For a lighter weeknight meal, I decided on some grilled chicken breast on bed of crunchy romaine with dried cranberries and shredded cheddar.
The chicken was moist and full of flavor, while the romaine cold and crisp! The dried cranberries were both sweet and tart, the cheddar offered a slight bite.
This is definitely a meal where seconds are allowed, and perhaps even encouraged!
