    I'm sick of winter so I will pretend it's summer and fire up my grills today

    the menu is Surf and Turf

    Appetizers:

    PEI mussels grilled in the shell and served with a spicy white wine butter sauce

    Grilled thick slices of tomatoes with fresh mozzarella and basil served on fresh grilled bread with garlic butter

    a nice tuna fillet grilled sashimi style with a ginger sesame glaze

    For the entree I have a beautiful sirloin and some jumbo shrimp that I'll serve with grilled asparagus with hollandaise and a roasted red and yellow pepper salad.

    yeah it's feeling like summer already.

    Winter should NEVER be an excuse not to grill.

    There are only two excuses not to grill:

    1. The absence of a grill.
    2. The absence of grillable food.

    BTW...your menu sounds great!

    No thanks, my housekeeper is fixing me a nice lunch right now. Pork chops, fried taters and pinto beans with cornbread.

    NICE!

    I would love to whip out the grill but i'll wait a bit longer, I think. I applaud your grilling perseverance though!

    cant wait for grilling season.

    Is your housekeeper able to speak in different dialects?
