It's Starting Feel Like Spring!

Saturday, May 14, 2011
In Wyoming, when ever the temperature climbs above 40° F (4.44 ° C), we see this as time to get out the grill, put on some shorts and start some outdoor living! Now, the weather typically isn't cooperative until mid May, and even then, you can go from 70° to 32° & snow in a blink of an eye.

I would like to think we have turned the corner, but if we haven't, our dinner on Friday the 13th sure felt like a summer meal. It would have even soothed the most friggatriskaidekaphobic of us. The meal was made up of simple grilled New York strip steaks, chilled watermelon chunks, the always delicious Grilled Corn Salad and Dianes Pine Nut Pilaf, a new recipe that is very very nommy.
It was whats for dinner
Dianes Pine Nut Pilaf
1 c cooked Jasmine Rice
1 c cooked Long Grain White Rice
3 Tbs Olive Oil
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp fluer de sel salt
2 tsp Curry Powder (we used a mild blend we got at the World Market, but use whatever you want or, try making your own)
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped

This was really created to use up some leftover rice in the refrigerator!
Heat frying pan with 1 Tbs olive oil. Add rice and begin to heat through. Add onions, garlic and the remaining olive oil.
When heated, add salt, curry powder and pine nuts and heat for 5 minutes longer. Spices can be altered to taste.

Here's too many more spring and summer meals out on the deck!
