summer lunch

I can't help it, my lunch today was just too good not to share.

I had a ribeye that I bought on sale this week and needed to cook soon, and a batch of that hungarian dill zucchini. So I grilled the ribeye, and made a salad with spinach, frisee and radish. And I threw a garden cuke, a leftover cubanelle pepper, some chives, garlic and tomato juice into the food processor with a little olive oil, sherry vinegar, salt, pepper and just a wee speck of cumin to make gazpacho.

Cold gazpacho, hot fatty ribeye, plus a tangy salad of bitter greens, spicy radish, and enough of that zucchini to basically serve as a dressing. Not bad for a workday. AND I didn't resort to starch, so aside from the pedantic argument that beef fat is perhaps not entirely dietetic, good for me too!
