Soup + Salad From the Grill


Since we’ve been on the road I’ve fallen even more in love with cooking on our grill, simple delicious meals that warm the body.  Especially after long hikes like this one.  Food tastes infinitely more delicious when your legs are achy and your mind has had hours of walking to exhaust all thoughts!  Yesterday we hiked to Alamere Falls, and after a long day of walking this meal was the perfect answer to all of our hunger questions.  Lemony grilled romaine salad (the charred lemons give it such good flavor!), easy tomato soup with salt + pepper potato chips, and a bit of skirt steak- our kind of meal these days!  Recipe for the soup and salad below- we hope you love!!  xx- Sarah  {Styling Sources: plates, bowls, flatware, napkin, ladle, cutting board, serving platter}

    I’m going to the Adirondacks in NY the 2nd weekend of October! We’re going to be hiking 3 peaks that weekend, and I’m sure we’re going to be tired after. I’m definitely going to try this over the campfire! Looks so delicious and very easy! I’m printing this out to try and get the ingredients together before we go :)
