Since there are two of us, I try to get the most use out of the coals when I load up the barbecue pit (oh, not the right word these days ... charcoal grill?). I started with potatoes and onions in foil (with a chunk of frozen butter) and another packet of onions with olive oil and garlic. Added halves of zucchini and eggplant, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with my favorite Greek blend seasoning. Then a flank steak, marinaded in my favorite "kal-bi/bulgogi) -type mix. As they finished, I took off the veggies and turned the onions, eggplant, and squash, adding a few fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes, into my own version of rattatouille. As the steak was sitting, I seasoned some frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I do not thaw first) with some Penzey's tandoori seasoning I've been meaning to experiment with, on the top rack, closed it, sliced the steak, and got dinner on the table. After eating, the chicken comes off the grill, into a foil wrap to finish cooking/cooling on the kitchen counter.

I now have steak for crying tiger, chop chae, steak sandwiches, whatever. The ratatouille will get tossed with angel hair, or warmed and put on a bed of lettuce for a Med salad. The chicken will be sliced and served with some pre-made curry-type dishes.

Voila! Dinner for the week, and a lunch or three as well, not to mention delicious dinner.

I love food cooked over a fire!

Dinner was Breaded & fried eggplant, linguine with meatballs and spinach salad. (Eggplant parm got veto'd, but I have some left over so maybe tomorrow)

I thought sourdough was a California thing.

We had rotisserie chicken, sesame noodles (my current go-to), and fresh cantaloupe. It was good for a summer night!

I had black tea with mint to drink. Refreshing.
