Recipes...

I made chimichurri sauce last night. It was fantastic! I have had some requests for the recipe. 

Chimichurri
-1 bunch parsley
-1 bunch cilantro (I'm not a big fan of cilantro, but it works in this recipe)
-3 Tbs red wine vinegar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-3 Tbs water
-6 Tbs olive oil
-6 cloves of garlic (this is optional. We really like garlic so I load it up)
These are not hard core measurements. More or less of everything can be added. I like vinegar so I add extra. 
Put everything in a blender and blend until well blended. 
Goes very well with beef

Roasted Vegetables
This works for any vegetable. I do broccoli mostly. I have also done potatoes, cauliflower and asparagus. Recipe is based off of what I did yesterday.
-Parsnips
-Carrots
-Eggplant (slice eggplant and salt heavily. Place on paper towels or rack for 30 minutes minimum to extract water)
-Tomato

Preheat oven to 450
Chop veggies
Place on cookies sheet.
Toss with olive oil, coarse salt and pepper
Roast for 20-30 minutes until soft *stir midway through cooking*
I finely dice all veggies so that Owen and Carter can easily eat them. Any size is fine. 

I made sirloin steak with the chimichurri sauce. We had veggies and Quinoa (follow package directions) as well. All was delicious.

  1. This chimichurri would taste great with syrah, in my opinion.
