Dinner on the Deck

Dinner on the Deck

Menu for tonight:

Grilled Anhco-Rubbed Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan
Baked Roma Tomatoes with Homemade Pesto

Early in the day I harvested basil from my “Deck Step” garden, and made the pesto.

1 ½ cups basil leaves
1 t of garlic (I use the jarred)
some salt, some pepper
a handful of walnuts

Put in processor and blend up and then add olive oil to your desired consistency.

Also early in the day I made the chimichurri sauce for the meat:

1 cup parsley
¼ cilantro
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
½ cup olive oil
½ t salt
½ cumin
1 t garlic (I use jarred)

Whirl it all up in the processor and let it sit on the kitchen counter.
