Grillin’, Chillin’ Part II
Oooh, I love my new Weber vegetable grill pan. I made chicken fajitas tonight and grilled the onions and peppers right alongside the chicken breasts. I spritzed the pan with oil first, and tossed the vegetables with a little bit of olive oil (sprinkle of salt, few shakes of ancho chili powder) before spreading them in the pan, so had no sticking problems. I heated the tortillas (wrapped in foil) on the grill as well – without the beans and rice I also made (for the kids), it could have been a completely grilled dinner. Oh, except for the guacamole – gotta have guaaaaahcamole with fajitas. (Or anything – definitely one of the world’s greatest dishes, guacamole!)
We ate on the deck, our first time for the season. It’s been warm enough a few times, but also windy, windy, windy, and really, who wants to eat elm seeds with their salad? Tonight it is completely still, 75 perfect degrees. The air smells of lilacs and barbecue. I enjoyed a long, idyllic walk around Lowry Hill and Lake of the Isles earlier in the day, then read The French Lieutenant’s Woman by the pool while Nathan swam, then sipped a beer while I prepped din…
Yeah, just one of those days.
