Little sister here. I’ve been busy with work and training and keeping track of kiddies, but not too busy to eat a tasty meal every now and then. Here are some pictures from our most recent grillstravaganza, which left our bellies full of portobello mushroom, grape tomatoes, shrimp, pineapple, zucchini, italian sausage, and homegrown asparagus. New aspiration: some time in the future, a summer of grill-only cooking (griddles allowed, of course). It might even be more energy efficient than regular stovetop cooking. Thoughts, anyone?
Wheelbarrows make great outdoor tables, especially because the tiny countertops on either side of the grill don’t really do justice to all the food we cook. We learned our lesson last time when a precariously placed package of precious italian pork sausage (fist pump for alliteration!) toppled to the ground.
Some kabobbed shrimp and tomatoes. The shrimp are great with pesto, or just a little salt and pepper, and the tomatoes get super juicy on the grill.
A combination of Barbara Bartholomew’s homegrown asparagus (the skinny long ones) and Wegman’s asparagus, lightly seasoned and about to be grilled to perfection.
Close-up. The sausage has a weird sheen going on here, but don’t worry, it was delicious.
Pineapple marinating in maple syrup, lime juice, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and brown sugar. The grill marks these fellas get are ridiculous.
Sausage. No other explanation necessary, methinks.
Thank goodness for summertime! Happy grilling to all.
