Thursday: Grill season is upon us

To inaugurate the 2009 grill season in a grand manner, we picked up a very nice looking aged cote du boeuf (looks like a t-bone to me) at the butcher. I let this sit out on a rack for a couple hours, then seasoned it with salt and pepper and threw it on a medium-hot grill. Pulled it off when it hit medium rare and then served with lemon slices.

I also made a hobo pack in the coals: potatoes, green garlic, leeks, rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, salt and pepper.

The steak was fantastic. The hobo pack was good but could have used a bit more time on the coals: it didn't have the browned bits that one wants from the these things.

Of course there was a big green salad with this as well.
