This summer I really got addicted to grilling. In general I don't cook very many of the same recipes more than once and this summer I embraced that principle with grilling.

At first I thought I would be limited on what I could do on the grill, but I discovered a love of grilling and so many flavors that I hadn't experienced before.

I grilled salmon, chicken, steak, shrimp, scallops, pork chops, lamb, veggies, and fruit. Oh, yeah and burgers too! The list goes on and on.

I especially loved making kabobs and tried every recipe I found on Pinterest that sounded like it might be good.

Besides the amazing taste, one of the main reasons I love grilling is because of how easy it is to marinate food and fire up the grill for a meal. With a 3.5-year-old and an infant, time is a luxury I don't have a lot of, and grilling met my need for variety and great tasting food.

Let me tell you, it was one delicious summer of food on the grill!

Now that the weather is cooling off, I will probably turn to warm soups and chili and cornbread as my go-to meals, but I truly love grilling, and when the weather permits, I will be outside with my grill!

  1. This cool weather makes it a wonderful time to grill out. Our gas grill makes the job simple, and the food always tastes great. Now that it is grilling weather, it is a good time to get ready to grill. We enjoy having cookouts with family and friends. Our grill is the main part of this experience.

  2. Those Mediterranean grilled chicken kabobs look excellent - so delicious! I love how you're experimenting with grilling and always trying something new! That makes for a lot of fun, some great flavor experiences, and a wide variety. Great summer activity! Grilling is so much fun and enjoyable for the family, but you've gone above the rest - this is great!
