What CAN’T Goat Cheese Do?

Ok, so maybe it can’t vote, but it CAN multi-task better than any other kitchen appliance I own. And I’m including my onion-chopper-potato-slicer-light-bulb-remover-nail-clipper. It was 4 a.m., the infomercial host had an Aussie accent and I was weak. Don’t ask.

I’m taking a short break from Pittsburgh posts (there are still a few coming!). Tonight the weather was unbelievably perfect which, of course, means I am outside all evening! I took the opportunity to grill some NY Strip and make a nice light salad, but who cares about a salad on a night like tonight, bring on the dessert! I’ll start with a wide shot so as to not cause immediate combustion. Warning, as the photos get larger, you WILL become more hungry. Continue reading

Boy Meets Grill

Thanks to mom and dad, it was time to break in a brand new charcoal grill! A sacred event, I kissed the fire hot grill with farm fresh fillet mignon from the local farmers market. Served on a bed of greens and grilled asparagus, it was topped with garlic goat cheese. The goats are frolicking in a nearby farm, and so I thank them for a wonderfully rich, creamy cheese! I do very little to the steak… Salt pepper and a good sear is all they need!
