I'm having a summer fling with my grill. I'm head over heels in love with it this year.
I seriously cook dinner on it every night. It leaves me wondering how I prepare all our meals in the winter. How do I cook all those things without going outside? Thats probably why I make so much soup, its easy!
In reality the weather is usually mild enough year round in Arizona that I could cook every dinner on my grill. But I've got a couple of ladies who insist on following me outside everytime I go out there. So if its cold then I have to go to the trouble of putting jackets on my kids. And I'm still on Gila Monster watch so taking my kids out onto the carport makes me slightly paranoid.
So I must seize the day and grill at every possible chance I have till the end of summer, or till I run out of propane, whichever comes first.
Last night I grilled some lemon chicken and zucchini. My kids helped. Mostly Ava, by allowing me to put her down on the ground long enough to acccomplish something. And she probably ate a couple of rocks as an appetizer. There are lots of times when I'm out there at the grill with a baby on my hip. I'm a one-handed chef.
My lovely (and a little dirty) grill. And my cooperating lady, letting me put her down for a minute.
Best part about cooking with a grill: No dishes to wash afterwards!
