Yesterday was the day!! I really believe that spring is here and will hang around for a while...well, maybe until next week.
Spring just calls out for the grilling season to begin. What a deal...strip steaks on sale....fresh produce to enjoy and my spring mix beds are starting to revive. The only thing to make a meal perfect is a home grown East Tennessee tomato, but that will have to wait for a bit.
Just the usual...baked potato with sour cream and fresh garlic chives from the garden. Nicely grilled strip and my newest vegetable put together, Snow Peas, Mushrooms and Cream.
I took about 2 cups mushrooms, sliced, (my egg slicer works good for uniform slices) and butter, slow sauté. Added a splash of vermouth and evaporated the vermouth. Then added two big handfuls of blanched snow peas, quarter cup of heavy cream and bring to a boil to reduce a little. Salt and pepper was the only thing needed! Tomatoes are not the best this time of year...but they really are good topped with Parmesan cheese and slipped under the broiler until the cheese melts. Works so nice for a steak plate. Enjoy your beautiful grilling season.
