Love it

I love the BBQ/Grill.  It makes everything from proteins to veggies and fruit taste better.  Now I will admit that I haven’t used my grill to make soups or heat up beans,but I have pretty much done the rest.

Memorial Day is coming up and hopefully we all have some great BBQ‘ing weather.  This year we‘re going to my parents home.  I was put in charge of the crudite.  So I will go and pick up a tray from Costco along with a nice big tub of hummus.  Our family prefers it to the ubiquitous ranch dip they always stick in there.

Now my parents never got a gas unit and at 80, they‘re a bit too up there to start firing up the charcoal for our crowd-so mom said she’s picking up chicken at either Costco or El Pollo Loco.  Works.  I’ll do a normal Monday night dinner on the barbie-we‘re going to the parents house on Sunday.

This would have been my grandfather’s birthday weekend.  But that’s another story.  You can do the math-Mom’s about to be 80 and he was somewhere in his mid-20’s when she was born.

Last Friday I asked everyone to share your favorite BBQ recipe for this week-so far, only Vikki69 put one in to the queue!

Here’s what Vikki had to say:

Here is my only bbq recipe:
Brown center cut pork loins, throw in slow cooker on high loaded with honey bbq sauce for 8 hrs, so tender and yummy.
I usually make enough so we can have sandwiches the next day.  

For us, hubby loves his chicken and I love my veggies, so for the chicken I like to use this quick marinade:

1/4 C EVOO
2 tbsp tamari (sweet soy sauce)
1 tbsp montreal steak seasoning

Blend well, pour over chicken parts (or use a ziploc!) and mix every hour or so.  Grill until the chicken reaches 160 degrees.  I like to use a med-high heat.

For the veggies-I love cumin and garlic.  So I just add a bit of kosher salt to taste and sprinkle it on.  To make sure the rub sticks-I spray the veggies with some EVOO.  

And now, for Friday-share some of your BBQ favorites OR if you‘re so inclined, share some of your funniest disasters!

Love it

    • We barbeque all year long and Joe is the master. He loves his grill and calls it “the ultimate cooking machine.” Last night he made a boneless short rib roast on the rotisserie and grilled some asparagus, peppers and onions on the side.

      I like to grill leg of lamb, butterflied and marinated with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and oregano.

      I also really like putting flank steak on the grill - 3 minutes a side and dinner’s ready!

    • yum on the asparagus Cynthia!  I love doing those, portobellos marinated in balsamic and garlic, zucchini.

      nevermind-I get sidetracked when I speak of BBQ’s and veggies!


      Rose-can you believe the weather changes we’ve been having????
