Fire up the Grill!

Last night I grilled our entire dinner, and it made me long for the days of summer that still seem so far away. School is done for me next week, and I feel like the weather should be sunny and warming up, instead of windy and cold enough for a jacket. No matter what the weather is acting like, I'm going to start grilling as though it's warm outside.

This was a simple dinner, all based around the fact I had some Gorgonzola I wanted to use up. I grilled cremini mushrooms (on skewers), zucchini (cut into planks), and a red and yellow bell pepper. I sprinkled the veggies with a little Herbes de Provence, crumbled Gorgonzola, and a splash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I also grilled some chicken sausages from Trader Joes, and some slices of rosemary bread that I brushed with olive oil. The flavors were fresh, the colors were beautiful, and the dishes were almost non-existent. This is a dinner I'll repeat in various ways throughout the upcoming warm months. Does it feel like summer (or at least spring) where you are?

Grilling summer is on the way. Well in Miami it's about 200F, so it's here already. Great looking grilled spread. Wonderful job. I love a woman who can get on the grill. Cheers!

While in Los Anegles I grilled green asparagus, just as you had shown in another post: delicious!
