Vegetable Plate, with ham wrapped green onions, swiss cheese and ranch dip
The ranch was made with greek yogurt and very little mayo, tastes great. I like setting out vegetables with a dip or dunk as a starter and have been doing this for years.
Grilled Meats (flank steak, chicken thighs) with Chimichurri sauce
The chimichurri sauce came from this tasting spoons, I love to visit and see what they are eating, always interesting.Side Dishes:
Grilled Shaved Zucchini over Tossed greens with Feta
The shaved zucchini salad from proud italian cook, I really enjoyed the texture of the zucchini ribbons. But this salad needs a lemon based vinaigrette to shine, next time.....
Grilled Caesar Salad
Slow cooked Green beans with hocks and red potatoes, seasoned with garlic, thyme and dried tomato
Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms
Just like you, I cook with what I have. What I had was a large bag of green beans to use up. I love the slow cooked green beans with ham hocks, but knew that many at the table would prefer the roasted green beans. I am glad I made both, there is lots of delicious leftovers for the next few days.
Chocolate Zucchini Bread with Brandied Prunes
Apricot Pie with cobblestone crust (because I did not get enough last weekend.....)
The zucchini bread used up the last of the brandied prunes made so many months ago and tucked in the back of the refrigerator. I think homestyle food has always been a cook with what you have process, I know it will continue on here in this kitchen.Beverage:
wines - red and white
