So, in our house we have declared this the Summer of Grilling! We love to grill out but we start out with great intentions and then time and preparation take a back seat and we end up at the first day of school with only having grilled out about half a dozen times. Not this year!
We have already been grilling out quite a bit but our goal is 4-5 nights a week. Now, that means a bit of planning ahead (which I love to do anyway- really) to make sure if something needs to be marinated it is thawed and ready to go or if I can marinate it the night before I do. I have some great ideas for grilled pizzas, grilled sandwiches, and maybe even a grilled turkey!
We have to get our grill ready. I have been reading up quite a bit on how often and what to clean on your grill. We are pretty good about cleaning the grill itself after each use. Those little charred bits that some people leave on the grill are NOT good for you or your health. They should be wiped off the grill after each use. When was the last time you cleaned inside your grill lid? What, you never really thought about it? It should be cleaned every 3-6 months. And the outside of your grill at least 2 twice a year. So, if it has been awhile might be time to clean off your grill and join us in the summer of grilling!
What do you like to grill? I am looking forward to some grilled pizza, burgers, and kebobs too! Lots of great dinner and sides will be coming this summer!
