    What are you grilling today?

    I promised the wife a meal tonight so

    Appetizer:

    Grilled Bruschetta with roasted garlic goat cheese spread and grilled tomatoes and portabellas

    Grilled jumbo shrimp in a spicy ginger lime sauce.

    Salad:

    Grilled watermelon served over baby greens with raspberries, sweet onion dressing, mint and feta cheese

    Entree:

    Beer can chicken with a spicy homemade rub
    Grilled sweet potatoes
    Grilled red pepper and asparagus

    Desert:

    Grilled pears with a caramel glaze served with ice cream topped with candied toasted pecans and home made whipped cream of course.

    I'm thinking about making a white wine sangria but I might be lazy and just put some white wine and beer on ice.


    What's on your menu?

    Love turkey on the grill. I never could develop a taste for salmon though.

    I never had a "water apple" but it sounds delicious.

    You can keep the green beans though (yuck)

    Last night, brats, pre-cooked in beer and onions and grilled along with red and yellow bell peppers, yellow onions and one hot pepper added at the last minute.
    Tonight chicken, peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomato and onion on skewers served with grilled fresh pineapple and rice.

    PS, try salmon dry rubbed with Cajun seasoning. Use olive oil on fish just before putting on a clean hot grill. Two minutes a side for a 3/4 inch steak.
