Last night’s meal was the perfect example of an easy, somewhat healthy, satisfying plan ahead dinner. It was so good that the goons kept eating and drinking and eating, and I finally had to kick them out at 10:30pm. It was a school night!
First, I made the Blueberry Buckle on Saturday afternoon. It’s kind of like a lemony blueberry coffee cake. Add a little extra salt and lemon zest to the recipe below.
Then we looted our garden and hit the farmer’s market to make a Mediterranean salad with lemon dill dressing. Butter lettuce, tomatoes, cukes, peppers, red onion (sliced thin and rinsed under cold water), basil, chickpeas and feta. The dressing is lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, dijon, fresh dill, salt & pepper.
Butter Rice is a great goon filler staple. Rice, chicken stock, saffron, butter and lots of salt to taste.
Top it off with sweet corn on the cob.
And perfectly grilled flatiron steak marinated in olive oil, onion, oregano, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
Loosen the belt buckle for the Blueberry Buckle.
