The problem with posting while on vacation is that when you come back from vacation you have nothing new and exciting to talk about. So, in light of that, let’s talk about one of my favorite things to talk about – food.
I enjoy cooking and I enjoying eating but when it’s hot like it is here in New England things get tricky. I use the grill a lot to keep the kitchen from getting heated up and the other night I actually made a whole meal on the grill. I had some boneless/skinless chicken breasts that I marinated in lemon juice, olive oil and garlic and I cooked those on the grill along with some new potatoes from the CSA and zucchini and summer squash. For the potatoes I tossed them in olive oil and dill and then wrapped them in a foil packet. They took about 30 minutes over medium heat on the gas grill. I cooked the squash on the side burner as I love roasted vegetables but Dale isn’t crazy about them so I alternate cooking them his way and my way. It was a great meal. Everything was delicious and quick and nutritious, too – yay me! Do I have photos? Nope, we gobbled it up too fast!
But the whole thing got me to thinking about summertime eating and cooking and it made me decide to ask: what do you cook when it’s too hot to cook? Let’s hear it!
