More on Summer

Yes, Summer has a taste.  Summer tastes like fresh vegetables and grilled meat.  My weekly to-do list includes a visit to Bi-Zi Farms to buy whatever she has fresh.

We've used our grill quite a bit during our recent flood and remodel.  I've learned to grill our vegetables.  This whole business of pulling back the shucks, removing the sink and wrapping the corn back up with the shucks is unnecessary.  Cooking the corn directly on the grill works good for us.  A rib eye steak and Mediterranean Salad makes a good date night on our own back patio.  

Mediterranean salad (modified from a Dr. Andrew Weil cookbook, can't remember which)
1 cucumber, peeled seeded and chopped
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 sweet red pepper, shopped
1 small can sliced black olives
2 T. fresh parsley, chopped
3 T. lemon juice
2 T. olive oil
1/3 c. feta cheese, crumbled.
salt to taste and lots of fresh ground pepper.
