Gorgeous day here on Long Island. Sunny and not too cold. No jacket, but no shorts either! Perfect kind of day to send the Griller out! Can't have the grill on without the obligatory Hot Dog. Hebrew National from the butcher, the kind by the pound. Has that very special "snap" that you don't get with pre-packaged dogs! I think I've mentioned it before. Skirt steaks for Miss Picky and grilled Rack of Lamb for the rest of us! It's Sunday, I start out with high hopes and lots of recipe ideas for that big weekly family dinner, and after a whole day of lazy, I opted for the easy way out. Grilling and bottled marinade. Ok, so I doctored them up a bit. At least it's not takeout. Again.
Kikkoman Teriyaki sauce. Add some honey, some garlic and scallions. Not a bad thing at all. Great on skirt steak. The Rack of Lamb marinated in Greek Marinade for about two hours. Sauteed String Beans in Teriyaki sauce with red peppers and sliced almonds. and we started with Woodie's Tomato Salad, she got it from her friend, Jack, but I got it from her so it's Woodie's Almost Famous Tomato Salad here! So it's imple, so it's been done before, but it needs a name when they ask you what's for dinner. So Woodie's Tomato Salad it is. We don't know Jack :)
