This past weekend none of the usual suspects was around to play; but fear not, a couple married as long as we had no trouble finding something to do. Friday evening the skies cleared and we were able to enjoy martinis on the deck before dinner.
I took a piece of tuna, briefly marinated it in a lightened teryiaki-type sauce, then pressed some toasted sesame seeds onto the suface. After the grill had heated to HOT, we barely seared it for a couple of minutes, then sliced it thinly on the diagonal and served it with some soy sauce combined with lime juice and a splash of sesame oil for dipping. Delicious with or without a martini.
For dinner we shared a nicely marbled rib eye steak (blurry photo below) and a Greek salad.
Saturday's weather forecast was promising, so we blew off our errands and went to the beach. When we returned and were ready for dinner, I prepped some wild sockeye salmon for the grill, cut some farmstand corn off the cob standing ready to be sauteed in sweet butter and topped with a chiffonnade of basil. And figs for dessert.
By Sunday dinner all we could manage was a farro salad and a bunch of grapes!
Not too bad for an old couple left to their own devices. Let's see what next weekend brings.
