friday night

I was reading Debby's blog yesterday and she had prepared a yummy looking dinner that included lamb chops finished with gremolata. And after that, I couldn't get it out of my mind. So after work, I headed to the store to pick up some items for the weekend and the gremolata was in the forefront of my mind. The store had some beautiful sirloins and of course, a few great wine deals. For my gremolata I added some basil from our garden along with the garlic, parsley, and lemon zest. I rubbed the gremolata over the steaks with some olive oil, sea salt and ground pepper. The steaks rested at room temperature for an hour before we threw them on the grill. We served the sirloins with grilled corn in the husk and a nice bottle of Cabernet. Craig finished up the meal with his special dessert; the world's best chocolate sorbet finished with honey Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries and toasted coconut. We inhaled it and neglected to take a picture...sorry, next time...I promise. Thanks Debby for our dinner inspiration!

That looks and sounds delicious. I am sooo jealous. Nary a home-cooked meal this week.

Marc-with the current economy, we have no choice but home cooked meals...however, I don't feel the need to cheapen that down!!!

Deb-yes all us girls need to get together and cook. And though she may not believe it, Tanya is a great cook too!!! I'll send you info on Craig's dessert. It was one of those things where we had unexpected dinner guests and needed to come up with something on the fly. Funny thing is, the request it EVERYTIME they come for dinner.

Buffalo-Oddly, I still had my work clothes and full make up on because I wanted the meat to marinate for as long as it could and I didn't want to waste time changing. By the time I went in the bathroom to change, I had to laugh. I felt like Laura Petrie (all heeled, coifed and lipsticked) waiting for Rob to come home and eat dinner. Usually, it sweats and a t-shirt! ;)
