Eating Local: Grilled Summer Veg & Flank Steak

20120910-114854.jpg It seems fitting that my 200th post is about eating locally, and from the grill! For the past 15 months I've chronicled my garden & kitchen adventures, and oh how I've grown! It started with some of my go to recipes that my friends and family wanted, and grew into a journal of how I grow my organic garden and feed my family. Cheers to 200 more posts & adventures!

So this week my CSA and garden were overflowing with sweet potatoes, squash & corn. Since I've been busy cleaning up my gardens to prepare for fall, this meal had to be delicious, but quick. It all (minus the sweet potatoes) went onto the grill.


I drizzled all of the components with olive oil and seasoned with salt & pepper. The sweet potatoes received a homemade herbs de provence (thyme, lavender, rosemary, oregano & fennel seed) and roasted in a 425 degree oven until caramalized (~25 mins).


The meal was finished with a little gorgonzola, that's not so local, but it was divine! There was no way we could eat all of the corn, so most of it was cut & put into freezer bags for later use.


Did you grill up anything delicious this weekend?
