Summer Sundays

If you follow blog you know that I approach sundays very differently in summer than winter.  Winter Sunday afternoons are great for cooking with a football game on.  Summer Sunday afternoons I want to spend at the pool, on the golf course or on the tennis court unless the weather rules those out.  This will be a simple dinner, allowing time for other pursuits!

Grilled flank steak and garlic potatoes

  • 1 packet McCormick Meat Marinade (fix according to packet instructions – I use olive oil for the oil and white wine vinegar)
  • 1 flank steak

Poke steak with a fork to tenderize and marinate for 1 – 4 hours.  Then grill to desired doneness.

Roasted garlic potatoes

Cook extra potatoes to have with the salad Nicoise!

  • 6 small Yukon gold or  12 small fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, cut in slices
  • 2 Tb olive oil

Scrub potatoes and toss in a bowl with remaining ingredients until all are well coated.  Preheat oven to 400.  Spread potatoes out in a ceramic baking dish and roast for 40 minutes, stirring once midway.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
