More Local Food Delights

While Saturday turned out to be a write off - weather-wise, Sunday made up for it in spades! It was sunny and glorious and we spent much of it at the Halifax Jazz Festival on the Waterfront. And yet still had a most delicious supper of grilled Getaway Farm strip loin steaks, rubbed with finely chopped rosemary leaves and pepper, with a side of new potatoes, roughly mashed with lots of butter and chopped garlic scapes, which you can sort of see peeking out from behind the steak and another side of grilled asparagus from Noggin Corners Farm Market. And if you look closely you'll spot the Honey Wheat beer brewed locally by Propeller Brewery.

A perfect end to a great weekend and leftover steak (not to mention the last of the mushrooms I picked up at the Wolfville Market last weekend) enough for a fantastic pasta... if I do say so myself. And for you vegetarians out there... even without the steak, the hearty mushrooms, salty black olives and the splash of balsamic vinegar will have you drooling!

I'm sharing this one with Presto Pasta Nights which is being hosted this week by Tandy at Lavender & Lime. You have lots of time to think of a pasta dish to share. Just drop her a line by Thursday - lavenderandlimeblog (at) gmail (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com

Haha thanks for the vegetarian shout-out! this pasta does sound delicious...I love a good balsamic based sauce!

That sounds wonderful! And quel coincidence. We have steak about once a year and are barbecuing it tonight. Maybe we won't hog it all and have some left over so we can make this pasta dish.

Of course if my Honey read either of your comments, he'd be shaking his head....steak ONCE A YEAR! or worse...NEVER!!!!

That said, I do try to occasionally surprise him with a vegetarian meal that really satisfies him.

Thanks for dropping by.

Mmmm, Steak and Mushroom Pasta is a new one on me, I'm definitely going to give that one a try. I am going to also make my own homemade pasta with it... lovely.
