Hooray, springtime arrived for a day! It will probably be gone tomorrow but you know we should celebrate when we can.
My grilling choice was influenced by a post on a new local blog. The picture of the ahi reminded me we had lovely tuna steaks in the freezer, after a buying spree from Friends and Farms last month.
We chose some extra tuna and put it away anticipating a lovely day like today.
Turns out this was a really local feast. The tuna, green beans, green pepper, and sweet potato all came from F and F baskets.
Add to that one awesome 2001 Elk Run Cabernet. That’s right. 2001.
Who would have known that Maryland Cabernet could be soft, subtle and compliment the tuna so perfectly.
Grilling was a real joy today.
Simple tuna. Brushed with Italian vinaigrette.
Green beans from the IQF packet. Scallions. Green pepper. Sun dried tomato and garlic from the olive bar at Harris Teeter (seriously, get a container of stuff from them and use it everywhere). Italian vinaigrette for the marinade.
Spring may only be a day long around here, but tonight. Dinner was regional sourced, and excellent.
