Grilling is Easy

Labor day just passed, but I’m still going to wear white.

I’m also still going to use my grill! SCREW THE RULES!!

I’ve been grilling all summer, on and off. It’s so easy, and it brings people together. You could say the same about cooking anything – anywhere. But since the grill is outside, makes everything smell amazing, and reminds people of happy times, I am going to continue endorsing grilling as my favorite method of cooking.

Here is an assortment of instagram photos I have taken while grilling this summer.

The beauty of grilling is the ability to be as creative or plain as you want – and (as long as it isn’t too burned) it tastes great!

some of my favorite things to grill include:

  • onions
  • corn (husk or no husk)
  • pineapple
  • peaches
  • meat (duh.)

My only additional advice is: Salt and pepper goes a long way, and serve anything with a cold beer. Cheers!

The only downside is it needs to bake for a few hours ...so make them early, go on with your day, and when it’s time for a snack these will be in the oven waiting for you!  I based this recipe on the zucchini chips from TableForTwoBlog.com, and added a few of my own tricks, like Sriracha for a kick of flavor.

  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
  • Slice zucchini into thin chips, approx 1/8″ to 1/4″ apart (up to you)
  • Place slices on papertowl and press to blot out moisture.
  • Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, place chips on top.
  • Lightly coat with olive oil using pastry brush.
  • Sprinkle with a small splash of salt
  • Bake for 2+ hours until they are brown and crisp, not soggy!

Besides the delicious sweet chili flavor, I also love Sriracha’s easy pour nozel. It makes garnishing food even more fun! I decorated this plate of zucchini chips with a zig-zag sun pattern to give it flair, you can doodle whatever you want! Presentation is always important, if you don’t believe me you haven not watched enough Food Network.
