Not too long ago we had a one-day break from the oppressive humidity and immediately took advantage of it by using the grills outside of the apartment. While I do really appreciate how close they are, it really makes me dislike living on the third floor. There’s just something about hauling a bag of charcoal, your food, tongs and various other items down three flights of steps and then back up three flights of steps that just makes it less appealing. Or I guess you could say we are definitely working for our dinner.
My herbs have been touch and go this summer. I think part of it is because I’m growing them indoors. Last year I had absolutely no issues with them at all and couldn’t believe the amounts they were producing. Now I just have extremely finicky herbs that look great one week and look half dead the next. Its quite annoying to say the least. But this was a particularly good week for them so I decided to use a bunch of them up for this recipe.Print

I wasn’t sure how this was going to taste, but I really enjoyed the light and fresh flavors of the herbs mixed with the lemon zest. I served this with grilled potatoes and corn on the cob.
