The weather has been so beautiful lately, the wind has finally died down and the sun is shining brightly! In planning my menu this week, checking the freezer to see what we have/what I need to use up, I spied some steaks and thought how long its been since we barbequed. So, DS3 and I went out to the backyard to see what we could find for a barbeque. We found an old terra cotta planter that was just the perfect size, put enough dirt in the bottom to level it out, and then covered it with heavy duty foil. Then you can put your charcoal briquettes in, light them and voila! an instant homemade barbeque.
We cooked veggies (carrots, broccoli, pea pods and mushrooms) in foil, and then started some apples with a smidge of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon - the packets around the edge of the grill - and then put on our steaks. I had bread in the machine and potatoes baking in the oven. It was all delicious! And Fun!! We'll be using it again and again!
