Or is it Grille of My Dreams? (Actually, the title is from one of my favorite Bugs Bunny Looney Tunes). We do enjoy our patio, and we did some grilling recently on a remarkably beautiful late afternoon (80° F) with very low humidity. Reminds me of my favorite Christmas poem (with apologies to Clement Clarke Moore):
"The patio was washed down with care,
with the hopes that Grille Man would soon be there"
So Kid2 and I purchased a new charcoal grill at Ocean State Job Lot (the regional equivalent to Big! Lots). It was only $35, and the closest to a Weber kettle grill that I can handle - the Weber doesn't have a hinged lid, and is too heavy for me to lift. The new one has the hinges, so I can operate the lid from my wheelchair.
I made pork marinated in limes. I used a pork tenderloin sliced into 6 pieces, marinated in lime juice, crushed red pepper, fresh garden basil and Rosemary and peppercorns. Later the grille was prepared and I worked with the grilled Portuguese bread prior to cooking the pork. The pork is in process, and the already grilled bread on the plate has just the right amount of char, as it was coated with an olive oil/butter mixture first. It's foolproof.
Of course, the meal was really good because all four of us were there. Enjoying a meal together is really the best. We are going to cook chicken on the grill tomorrow, and I am looking forward to it, as Patti has purchased for me a new basting brush she picked up from Big! Lots today. I will get a picture of the 67¢ brush tomorrow. In fact, summer closeouts are happening now, so maybe more grill accessories will be in our possession soon...
