Simple Summer Dinner on the Grill

Nothing beats cooking an entire meal on the grill - easy clean up, you don't heat up the house, and it just tastes like summer.

I went to Whole Foods for the first time yesterday and picked up all of our ingredients for a summer meal - NY strip steaks, yellow squash, tomatoes, and potatoes. The closest Whole Foods is 30 minutes from us...I think they really need to put one in our town! Amazing produce, organic meats, and a lot of other interesting ingredients.

When we were ready to cook, I seasoned the steaks with salt and pepper and Jon grilled them. Perfect grill marks and great, simple flavor.

For the squash, I simply sliced it lengthwise, drizzled it with some olive oil, and seasoned the slices with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and a touch of paprika. I did the same with the tomato halves. SO delicious!

Finally, the potatoes. I pierced each one a few times with a fork, rubbed the skins with olive oil, and then seasoned them with salt and pepper. I wrapped them in foil and they cooked on the grill for about 40 minutes. We topped them with butter, sour cream and garlic chives.

We enjoyed this fabulous dinner with a great bottle of 2005 Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon - incredible!
