FUN MONDAY - Favourite recepe
Sayre is our host this week, and I thank her very much without her the chain would have been broken because there were no volonteer at all ! The challenge is easy for most of us who love cooking, less for those who don't like to cook ! She said :
What I want from you is a step-by-step guide (pictures encouraged) for making your favorite summertime dish. This can be an entree, a vegetable, a casserole, or a dessert. Hopefully it will be quick and easy so we can spend August playing more and cooking less!
Cooking was my hobby when I was in my 30th/40th, I loved to eat a plate I didn't know at all, find out the ingredients just by tasting and then try to cook exactly the same plate at home. Mr. G was my guinea pig and he loved it.
But after 40 years of cooking, I found other interests. There was a time I really hated it. Now I found a way to cook healthy, good and always things which don't take time.
Here is one of my favourite plate, grilled vegetables. The recepee is very easy.
Take your husband or partner and ask him to cut green, red and yellow pepper, zucchinis and/or eggplants into slices, while you answer your the comments on your blog. (in case you are retired)
Put all the vegetables together on a plate. Throw some olive oil over it, garlic and basil and put it in the oven and let it grill. When it's half done add salt, not before because salt takes out all the juice of the vegetables. While it cooks you can continue to blog (for example).
You can serve this plate with a steak, chicken or fish and a fresh french bread or a ciabatta.
