During the 4 warm months of the year, we like to grill. We plan ahead and buy a LOT of meat for the grill and usually pair it with a lot of fresh produce. I try to organize things so that I shop in the morning and we grill in the afternoon or evening of the same day. I don't like to keep raw meat hanging around in my refrigerator for too many days, so getting it out the same day I buy it really makes me happy.
On our most recent grill-day, we had:
BBQ chicken thighs that I had marinated with a recipe from Once a Month Cooking.
Stadium Brats (12 of them, I believe)
Polish sausages (6)
Hot dogs (12)
Roasted yellow peppers
Boiled corn on the cob
Fresh strawberries (I got a GREAT deal on those, $3.76 for 2 quarts of berries)
Trappy's Field Peas
and this green bean recipe.
It was heavenly.
We ate grilled leftovers from Sunday until Thursday. All I had to do was reheat it each night and everyone had their fill of whichever meat they wanted plus all the veggies. I wish I'd taken a picture because it looked like we had enough food for 20 people.
