The weather personnel warned people that it is going to reach 100 degrees today, pretty much like the past couple days. Yesterday was 101 degrees, which was unbearable. We were warned not to fire up the grill outside. But we have already made plans to have a barbecue lunch with friends today. Summer is always hot anyway. And we can’t grill in the winter. What is it going to be, grill or no grill?
Of course I take the extreme heat warning seriously. That’s why we decided to start the grill early in the morning. By the time the sun was out, we have prepared the meat, chopped the vegetables. By about 7 o’clock we were already cooking in our backyard. Our neighbors woke up and smelled barbecue. No, it was not a dream.
Asian barbecue pork chops.
Grilled chicken in two flavors.
I love the basket, can’t grill without it. No more dropping food to the bottom.
Now we can enjoy the food inside. The man who invented air conditioning is my hero.
The sweet cherry tomatoes and long beans were picked in our garden. Fresh!
Our friends came over and we had everything ready to put on the table. Everybody loved the grilled vegetables. That gave me an idea to create a recipe for the next cookout. Yes, I am always thinking even when I am eating. We had a great time celebrating 4th of July ahead of time. Red, white, blue.
