Vegetable medley from the garden

There really is nothing like picking vegetables from the backyard garden, preparing them simply and roasting them over flame. Yesterday, we harvested the first what I’m sure will be many more zucchinis, and enough green beans for two servings (there’s lots more out there). A couple weeks ago, we also pulled a couple dozen onions of various types and set them to cure on wire shelves in the sunroom.

There’s really not much to this recipe. I trimmed the zucchini and cut it lengthwise into four planks. I whisked together the juice of one lemon, the same amount of extra-virgin olive oil, a 1/2 tsp. of Penzey’s Minced Garlic, a pinch of cayenne, a big pinch of sugar, and salt and pepper for a quick marinade. I also sliced a small homegrown red onion and trimmed the green beans.

Dan sprinkled Paul Prudhomme’s Blackened Redfish Seasoning on two tuna steaks and took everything out to the grill. We have this handy grilling wok that makes it easy to grill small pieces of food like cut vegetables.

After everything was grilled, we tossed the vegetables with the rest of the marinade.

    This is going to be very random, but I am so excited to have found your website!

    I came across your website while doing a google search as I am trying to do some family history research on my husbands side. I am looking for the names of the children of Andrew Jackson Smith and Sarah Jane Glenn. The post you wrote with the picture of the cemetery headstone of Andrew and Sarah came up on my google search. I am a distant relative trying to put together some family lines. Do you have the names of their children? Their children’s spouses? I would be thrilled to have any information you have! Thank you so much in advance! You would be a distant cousin to my husband. What an exciting day!!!!
