Springy Flower Salad

Springy Flower Salad

Springy Flower Salad. Back when I was learning about the many edible and medicinal herbs and flowers with Rachel MacLeod at the Kiln Farm. I was being shown all the varieties which we would pick as they were growing and then turn into the salad of the day. It was a lot of fun and very neat as each week I would be introduced to a new flavour. Chocolate Curry Flower, Opal Basil, Dandelions and Clover. Nothing makes a food plate jump out at you more then one presented with some eye dazzling edible flowers. I like lavender, thyme, dill, cilantro, day lily, zucchini squash...

New York Strip Steak and Saucey Pasta. The spring green house tomatoes and mini cucumbers are making it to the produce department.

Some ragu sauce, chili parmesan and some fresh blanched noodles. Seasoned with salt and pepper the steak was grilled at 550 degrees on the hottest grill part on the bbq. 3 minutes a side and let rest. Get out the beer and enjoy. There’s always room for dessert.
Mushroom Pepper Steak Sub.

Mushroom Pepper Steak Sub.

Mushroom Pepper Steak Sub along with some crispy Duck Fat Fries! When the New York Strip steaks come in bulk at a super price, I like to vac seal and freeze. They are great to be first offerings on the bbq. The trusty cast iron skillet has a good collection of duck fat and the chunky fries will come out crispy crunchy. Another way to achieve the almost taste is to mix some duck fat with beef stock and spritz it on after frying in vegetable shortening. Slice up a few green bell peppers, a whole onion and 1/2 pound of mushrooms. I saute with butter and soya sauce. A nice...
