Grilling season is upon us. Have you fired up your grill yet this season? As soon as it gets warm around here, we love to use our grill. There is nothing like a perfect day and being able to make your dinner right on the grill. The food seems healthier and it’s so different than the same old stuff I cooked all winter long. It doesn’t get my house hot by turning on the oven! Now that’s what it’s really all about! Plus, it’s an easy clean up. Okay, THAT’S what it’s really all about. Clean up on the grill is the best. No dishes–the best!
