As you all know, we love our deck, and eat out there as much as we possibly can. Yesterday, we had a quick, impromptu dinner with Priscilla and Jonathan to start off our summer season. All of the dishes I made, you’ve seen before, but it was a fun, delicious way to start off the summer season. Steaks were seared to perfection, there was plenty of good wine and great friends. Great friends are the best gift of all.
I seared my steaks in my new favorite way to eat steaks, the way I learned from America’s Test Kitchen. Steak Seared to Perfection For side dishes, I made a roasted pepper and mushroom salad with a rosemary vinaigrette Roasted Pepper and Mushroom Salad with Rosemary Vinaigrette and roasted potato wedges. I topped the steaks with pesto and served it all with a Grenache-Syrah red blend, that we actually made and bottled a couple of years ago. It was a perfect start of summer meal.
Priscilla made a light Argentine cake roll, but of course, silly me, I forgot to take pictures of that.
We started of our summer season in style. There will many more such meals ahead. Stay tune. Don’t touch that dial. ‘Til next time.
