Labor Day Meal

Well Labor Day is this coming weekend and here is a meal that is made with Red, White and Blue.

  • For the Red – a nice London Broil cooked to medium rare, just seasoned with salt & pepper. A common cut of meat we cook around my house.
  • For the White – a few large sweet onions cut into rounds, brushed with olive oil, and salt & pepper.
    • After charring on the grill they were placed in a bowl with 3 Tbsp of butter and  1 Tbsp of dried thyme then covered with some plastic wrap for 10 minutes so they would steam a little and become soft.p

  • For the Blue  – Par boil the Blue potatoes and them shock them in cold water. Next out to the garden to get some rosemary and garlic and a baby onion chop the garlic and onion place in a bowl drizzle with some good olive oil add some salt & pepper. I have an iron grille plate that I heated medium hot on the grill place the potatoes on it cut side down for about 7 minutes then flip over for a few more. You can see that I was cooking the potatoes at the same time as the onions.

Foccacia Breakfast Sandwich

I love my wife’s focaccia bread. I will caramelize onions and take rosemary from our garden, mix with some olive oil and place on top of the bread before it bakes.

Since there is always leftovers, I am always looking for ways to use her bread with future meals.
