Anyone who visits this blog can guess, I love to cook!
Cooking = Extra Pounds
It isn't just me either. Its the 'family unit' who is having trouble buttoning up their jeans!
Thought I'd try something new last night for dinner. Grilled salad! Mom, you have cracked-up, came the comments from the couch! Yeah, I know! Strange as it sounds, it really was delish! You need to try this one, for sure.
I found a new web site, The Cooking Guy, go check this guy out! He is really funny, and has some great ideas. Plus he has little Quicktime Videos that you can take a look at.
He did his salad on the gas grill, due to the rain yesterday I opted for the good ol' Le Creuset grill pan.
It is nothing more than some Little Gem lettuce cut in half. Brush with olive oil and placed on the hot grill pan. I had a couple strips of bacon done really crisp. To finish the plate, I added some of my 50 year old Balsamic vinegar, some Parmesan shavings and a little more olive oil. It was SO good!
The Little Gem lettuces are from Spain and these were extra large, but the Little Gems you can find already packed at the local supermarket, 6 to a package, would work just fine too.
Can't wait for a drier day to try this one out on the grill! You know me, I grill out all winter, much to the curious stares of my neighbors!
Jeans are feeling loose already.....well, not exactly!
