Ok, so on to dinner....I grilled tonight so as not to heat up the house. Jim is trimming shrubs yet again, so just me grilling (be afraid....very afraid, though come to think of it, you're not eating this, so no worries).
No recipes tonight because you don't need any. I took a whole chicken, rubbed him with house seasoning which is just salt, pepper and garlic powder and then stuck him on this little grilling gadget with an open can of Coke inside of him. ( we picked these up at Bass Pro Shop) It's even better with a can of beer, but Treeman drinks long necks so I didn't have any. Though I guess I could have poured the coke out and filled it with beer from a bottle eh? I digress...so back to the chicken....
While the chicken was cooking, I tossed some asparagus spears and sliced red peppers with salt, pepper, minced garlic and balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I threw these on the grill when the chicken was pretty much done.
While the veggies were grilling I made up a simple salad of red leaf lettuce, tomato's, green onions, apples, walnuts and feta cheese. I then dressed it with Balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. This is equally as yummy with blue cheese but feta is what I had on hand.
A bit over cooked on the outside, as usual when I grill, but its delicious all the same I promise! :)
Nice and simple!
Are you grilling this weekend? I have a bunch of favorite outdoor cooking ideas I look forward to sharing with you over the summer and would love to hear if you have favorites as well!
Hope you're all having a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
