It is that time of the year! Well, at least in this hemisphere that is! Before we know it, summer will be gone… Let’s celebrate the last few weeks of sunshine with some serious cooking fun! Who wants to slog inside the house when it is that nice outside? You want to keep that house cool, right? So, forget the stove, get out and fire up that grill and get grilling! Bring some of those goodies over here for the party of the year, our gorgeous hostess Meeta has assigned me the responsibility to host her glamorous Monthly Mingle for this month and I am thinking, let’s Grill It! Thank you dear Meeta for this opportunity!
Don’t have a grill or you live in a place where it is not the outdoor grilling season? Don’t worry; you can use an indoor grill or a grill pan on the stove or even the oven… I am looking for those recipes which are versatile enough to be cooked on the grill and adapted for indoor cooking in the colder months.
You think you can only use the grill for meat? Think again! Grilling vegetables elevates their taste to a whole different level! And grilled fruits? What better dessert can you think of after a huge meal than a simple grilled pineapple with a side of coconut ice cream or grilled peaches with some honey or grilled pear and walnuts with goat cheese? Oh there are so many non-meat grilling ideas, you can’t use the “I don’t eat meat” excuse for this one.
Think marinades, sauces, burgers, Kebabs, Pizza, Corn, Grilled fish – anything goes! Check out this page for a bunch of grilling ideas: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/et_sl_grilling/0,1972,FOOD_9872,00.html
