Local ribeye steaks (no recipe needed)
Roasted local new potatoes

Hot tea
My mom drove all the way from Washington, DC today, so we wanted to greet her with a special dinner. So, we got steaks and potatoes from our farmer's market. The artichokes were a request from Theo, and came from Wegmans. One of the things that's great about fabulous ingredients is that you don't have to do much to them to make them perfect. We put French gray salt on the steaks and grilled them. I washed and halved the new potatoes, drizzled them with olive oil, more French salt, pepper and rosemary. Then I roasted them for about 40 minutes at 425. Perfect. Similarly, the artichokes were just steamed and served with a tarragon dressing we had. Yum. Couldn't be better and very little work.

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Potatoes, artichoke trimming
Time: 30 minutes
Make ahead: Nope.

J: "The ingredients make the meal."
M: "You can't beat the classics."
