Summer is On

A nice fresh meal out on the veranda. Or out in a small city backyard at a picnic table. Either way, good food.
I love how summer time automatically means lighter and fresher food. That usually translates into less prep time. These steak pinwheels are juicy and flavorful, thanks to bacon. Guess that isn't so light. The tomato, avocado, peach, and basil bits are though! Just drizzle with a little olive oil and salt/pepper.
We have been trying to use small plates at meals for a while now. It really is amazing how much less food per portion we eat when we do that. This is a perfect small plate meal.
Our tomatoes, peas, basil, rosemary, chives, and zucchini, are all growing up now, hopefully a summer meal will include some more of those soon!

Steak Pinwheels

Beef Round sliced thin or hammered
Sliced bacon laid on top
Spinach on top of that (frozen or fresh works fine)
Parmesan cheese (go heavy)
Salt and Pepper
Roll up and pierce with wet toothpicks before grilling
Drizzle olive oil over prior too
Grill for several minutes per side.
