LIVIN'/LOVIN' SIMPLE MID-OCTOBER LIFE AT THE LAKE (SIMPLE GRILLED RIBEYES ~ SIMPLE KALE AND ROMAINE CAESAR SALAD)

 “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

~  Dr. Seuss

SIMPLE GRILLED RIBEYES

Ribeye Steaks
Extra-virgin olive oil
chopped fresh rosemary
fresh chopped garlic to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Slather steaks with olive oil, chopped fresh rosemary, garlic, and black pepper. Allow to rest for 20 minutes or so before grilling.
  • Grill on high to desired donedoness. We enjoy steaks rare/med rare but all depends on temp outside and your grill. Allow steaks to rest a bit before eating.


SIMPLE KALE AND ROMAINE CAESAR SALAD

 6 oz. bunch of sliced Kale (center spine remove if large)
6  oz. bunch of sliced Romaine Lettuce

Lemon (squeezed juice plus zest)
2 cloves minced garlic
1  Tsp. anchovy paste
1  Tsp. Dijon Mustard
6  Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste

Combine lemon, garlic, anchovy paste, Dijon, olive oil, salt & pepper in blender until thick. Lightly toss with greens and top with grated Parmesan.

Hey Joey,

It's been a long time since I've checked your Blog (still love it). Was looking for some inspiration so I check Oct, 2008, you are truly a gifted person. Now I inspired.

Ah Hubbard Lake sunsets, one of my favorites to see on your blog!

The kale salad sounds yummy and since I now actually have a tube of anchovy paste, I could make it.

Thank you all for the lovely comments ... hope to be more visible on my blog now that summertime is over and I'm home more. (Ann are you on FB? Would be fun to catch up ... )

Well, I don't know how I missed this entry, but I'm glad I caught it, and the recipes.
Love Dr. Seuss, but I'd trade him for that lake view in a heartbeat.

Sweet friend, your recipes offer something for everyone. J would love to pounce on the ribeye, and I would be all over the kale salad.

This may sound a little weird, so try not to envision it, but, at this very moment, I'm gnawing on a bunch of microwaved kale.
Tastes like salted paper - a goat would probably flip over this.
