Marinated Flank Steak - London Broil

If you set out to research it, over and over again, you will read that London Broil is not a cut of beef, but instead is a method of grilling and carving. Yet... like this chunk of meat I cooked here, there it sat in the meat case with a label calling it simply, "London Broil" and nothing else.

Really? As if that isn't enough, that chunk of beef labelled London Broil might just be a chunk of top round, flank, skirt, hanger or some other cut. Why the confusion? Why not truth in labeling here - Flank Steak, great for London Broil? Makes sense to me!

I hear from a reliable source that squash is starting to come in! I didn't plant any this year so if you're trying to get rid of some, stop on by with a bag and I'll gladly take some off your hands!

For some reason, I never see pattypan squash around here, not even at the farmer's market, but yellow squash happens to be my favorite in the summer squash family. I like it far better than zucchini, though I do eat both. I think yellow is a little sweeter and more mellow than zucchini but both make pretty good zoodles.

Potluck Banana Pudding

I am an egg custard gal. From warm, oven baked custard or a simple custard pie, to dessert custard cream sauce, drinking custard, eggnog base, and real deal, homemade from scratch, custard banana pudding. And oh my goodness, let's not forget Vanilla Custard Ice Cream!  I love them all.

As a side dish, these roasted corn grits rock! I patterned them after the dish of the same name at Zea Rotisserie and Grill in Metairie, LA after hearing somebody, somewhere along the way talking about them recently. Oh my goodness. I thought my garlic cheese grits were good, but these? Off. The. Hook.

The roasted corn adds such incredible flavor.
