This time of year, it's grilling central: at work, at our friends' house, even at the college party house next door. Everywhere, but our place. That's right, no grill at our house. The travesty!
So, finally, after years of wanting and coveting and feeling inadequate, we bought one this weekend. Colin treated us to one heck of a beauty with some of his birthday money. We're determined to make up for lost time and grill as much as possible.
For his birthday, we grilled up lots of meat (at our place?! gasp! yes, meat!) and asparagus and potatoes and garlic scapes. Tonight, we grilled sausages (for Col), marinated tofu (for Me), asparagus and sweet potatoes. Who knew? Grilled sweet potatoes are awesome!
Whatever we can get on the grill, we're going to do it this summer: mushrooms, eggplant, bread, cheese, cabbage... We're not afraid. Hmm, I wonder: can you grill rutabaga?
