After some tennis in the morning 0n an empty stomach, I did not get a chance to eat until dinner time. Well, I could have eaten around 1 or 2, but I did not want to indulge in any of the food that others were eating at that time. I decided just to wait for a big meal later in the day.
A visit to a local butcher shop, sent me on my way with 2 kobe beef burgers. One cheddar bacon and one jalapeno cheddar kind. I also picked up home made bratwurst and 2 sausages that had a bit of basil and provolone cheese in them.
I cut up yellow squash, zucchini, sweet onion, garlic, yellow pepper and some bok choy. Drizzled the veggies with some white truffle oil and sprinkled them with sea salt and fresh herbs, Chives, oregano, parsley and cilantro. I then transferred them to my handy dandy grill basket and put it on the grill. I mixed together a bit of Fage greek yogurt and thinner yogurt and added a bit of garlic, scallion and cucumber (and a dash of sea salt) to make a little tzatziki sauce for the grilled veggies. I saved the larger part of the leaf of the bok choy and coated it with a bit of evoo. I then quickly grilled those. (the burgers and sausages are laying on top of them). They are kind of like kale chips but more of a grilled version I guess. It’s really tasty.
For you newer readers, you probably have not seen this grill basket before, haven’t used it in a while, but it’s so easy and quick and helps give your veggies that reallly yummy grilled flavor.
And lastly, a nice plate of food 😉
I had 3 of them.
It was a meal worth waiting for all day. One interesting side note; I have not eaten “bell peppers” (yellow, orange, red or green) in a while. For some reason I had a strange pain in the jonts of my fingers for the rest of the evening…not sure if that signals a nightshade sensitivity, but there was for sure some reaction after my meal. Interesting.
