Summer supper

Spatchcock grilled chicken, in the spirit of Serious Eats. I totally endorse the indirect cooking until it’s almost done and then crisping the skin at the end. Tasty. Amazing. Want more.

Grilled corn on the cob. This is such lazy cooking: fresh corn, just throw it on the grill on the indirect side for 20 – 40 minutes. It steams in the husks and then you shuck and eat. Om nom nom. I usually buy 4 – 8 ears and grill them the same day I buy them. 2 for eating now, and the rest I leave on the grill to cook longer. I strip the kernels off the cob and then have corn.

Tomato and cucumber salad. It’s not quite tomato season yet, but I’m getting antsy waiting for decent tomatoes. Baby heirlooms (from trader joes because there aren’t any good looking ones at the farmer’s market) sliced in half with fresh cucumbers, sliced red onions and some balsamic vinegar.

A very awesome dinner. I also picked up some fresh, local salmon which we’ll probably have tomorrow. With corn and tomato salad? Roast potatoes? Something like that.

Seasonal eating is great.
