Grilling Weekend

It was a weekend for grilling.  Our neighbors thought so too.  You come out back to undress (take the cover off) the grill and notice that your neighbors have already done the same.   “What ya grilling?”  “Chicken kabobs” he replied.  “I’m making chicken breasts myself.”

Of course we smothered ours in pesto and ate them with a delightful side of potato salad (made almost per April’s grandmothers recipe, with a few of our porch herbs thrown in) and a spinach/shitake/quinoa/feta salad by martha that has become one of our favourties.  🙂 

Yes we have restarted our porch garden,  i’ll have to get some good photos once things get warmer here and the plants grow a little bit more.  We have a couple tomatos, some jalapeno peppers and a ton of herbs.  (Which is really the part I’m most excited about).  Fresh herbs are the best thing, and can be quite expensive at the store.  Growing them on your own  makes them readily available and FREE (after the initial plant investment of course, but after 1 or 2 uses the plants really pay for themselves).  We did have a strawberry plant until last week (which we have now deduced that the dog ate it. Strawberries aren’t poisonous to dogs, but her stomach was not exactly happy (“Was that your stomach?” I questioned April, “No” she replied and then added “It wasn’t yours??” at which point we both look under the table to find an unhappy dog who when let down into the yard ate grass while I grilled)

But… grill season is setting upon us (even if it is only 55 degrees outside right now, a little frustrating for June 3rd, alas warmer weather is coming, I feel it) and I’m excited to get back out there.  Which is why I was excited to find this article titled “How to Grill (Almost) Everything” at Chow.com  I want to try the “Grilled Vegetable Sandwich with Egg Salad and Bacon” with our veggie friends J&R (minus the bacon of course for them), but they look super tasty!!!
