So it is late on Wednesday night as I frantically try to write all my thoughts that I want to share with you today.  As you know I am heading to Boston next week for the Healthy Living Summit as a sponsor and a presenter.  I will be doing a presentation on “Blogging 101″ and I’m very excited to add to the food community.  So with Bean town and continuing on the huge BBQ meal from the past weekend, I thought I would share with you a couple of quick and easy “BEAN” dishes as well as a killer grilled beef.

String Beans

Such a simple vegetable and yet so tasty.  I love these fresh from the market and they are so easy to prepare.  For this dish we simply prepped the beans, boiled them until tender, seasoned with salt and pepper then topped with a dollop of butter.  Delicious.

Grilled Beef

Well you know I love beef!  This roast was simply seasoned with salt and pepper – dropped on the grill on indirect heat ( which means heat on one side and not on the other side of the grill – and the meat is placed over the area with no heat)  Cooked until done to your liking.  Then just let it sit before carving and ENJOY!  So simple but such a great flavor.

Take care

Oh I’m excited for the dessert! The fava beans are intriguing, I’ve never tasted them before.

Have a great time in Boston. Will you tape your Blogging 101 speech, and post it?? No I’m kidding, but that would be awesome!
