The weather people lied today. They said “upper 40s and some sun”.
We got mid 60s and LOTS of sun, which called for a delicious dinner, cooked primarily outside! I long for grilling out through most of the winter, and the first one is kind of like coming home.
Italian marinated flank steak, grilled asparagus, and fresh caprese salad.
It doesn’t get much better! The marinade was simple, and I urge you to try it on your favorite protein:
- 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 Tbsp. oregano
- 3-4 basil leaves, torn into small pieces
Mix this up with a fork, kind of smashing the basil leaves into the liquid. Pour over your protein of choice and allow to sit at least an hour, but up to overnight.
The fresh basil = perfection.
Lame post, I know, but it’s a nice night and I have a coffee cake in the oven… more on that tomorrow!
