The Grill before the Storm
So we managed to get the BBQ fired up tonight. It was a beautiful 18 degrees out. They are calling for snow on Saturday. Will this winter never end? In any case the barbequed pork chops were awesome. Garlic power, salt, and pepper swished together in a small bowl and then sprinkled over top. The mashed potatoes were outstanding, so fluffy yet at the same time moist. The salad was spinach and strawberries. We often have this with roasted almond slices but alas, they were no where to be found tonight. The wife made a lemon and honey dressing. Just lemon juice and honey. Talk about au natural. Leftover spaghetti was lightly panfried with some red peppers and some other flavouring, I did not get the details. I was thoroughly satisfied with this evenings meal. Just what I needed to finish a short week of work. We have friends who called today to say they will be passing through tomorrow around dinner time. We invited them for dinner so we may have to upgrade from fish chowder. We will see what tomorrow brings.
