Rib Eye Steak, Homegrown Tomato Salad, and Yogurt Pie

On Thursday I received an email from Ferraro's Meat Market for a one-day special. $4.99 a pound for Rib Eye steak. This was the best steak of the summer. It was like eating butter. They were grilled perfectly, thank you, Chris.

The Homegrown Tomato Salad was quite a surprise. The surprise was that there were tomatoes! I have 2 tomato plants on the deck. One is an heirloom and the other is just a basic tomato plant. The basic plant has been producing a tomato here and there. Yeah, we have 2 tomatoes so far. The heirloom had produced nothing. On Friday I was watering the plants and I noticed something hanging on the side of the deck. Tomatoes! Heirloom Tomatoes! Two of them!
And then I noticed something red on the basic tomato plants. Yup, it was a tomato. I was so excited I put a photo of them on my Facebook page as the cover photo!
They were dressed simply in olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, fresh parsley, salt, and pepper, and some diced up fresh mozzarella. The perfect summer salad.
And of course lots of zucchini at the store. We grilled up some tonight.

And yes there was a dessert too! On of my Mom's go-to recipes. Yogurt Pie. Easy as pie. Graham Cracker crust filled with a mixture of yogurt, I used peach and Cool Whip. Light and easy!
