spring warmup!

So after realizing we are in for a pretty warm couple of days [especially tomorrow], I decided that grilling was the perfect way to truly welcome in Spring!
A trip to the local butcher this morning, yielded some beautiful, thickly cut steaks. I can almost smell the fragrant, smokey goodness that the grill offers once the meat hits those searing hot grates! My mouth is already watering in anticipation… dinner can’t come soon enough!!

chicken [cut]lets above the rest…

So on the menu for tonight’s dinner was breaded chicken cutlet topped with eggplant marinated in balsamic vinegar and roasted red peppers. To accompany this dish, lightly grilled yellow and green squash with chopped fresh mozzarella tossed in a homemade vinaigrette. This bright, vinegary and refreshing meal was a winner in my book! The cutlets perfectly breaded and flavored, while the squash offered a wonderful, almost sweet balance. The vibrant colors and flavors that were plated made me realize how close spring really is now, and that I cannot wait for its arrival. The idea of being able to create light fare in no time that is full of flavor just makes me so excited.
