It’s definitely too hot to be in the kitchen! Well, in the lowcountry, it’s hot outside too, but the sultry warm evening air is somehow the most relaxing thing on earth. However you spent the day – building fences or working at your computer – the warm evenings beckon us all outdoors.
If you could walk through the farmers market on your way home (or your garden before you go inside – even better), what would you find in July? Peaches, corn and tomatoes, of course! And they go together perfectly on the grill!
Just a touch of that fire (not too much!), provides a slight smoky silkiness to the bite of fresh vegetables, releasing their bursts of flavors to combine for a summer savory explosion!
That lonely plate is bustling with companionship now! My suggestions for getting the most of your summer grill? Take what is happening in the garden and put it on the grill. Add it to your dinner plate in one of many possible ways – Brick Chicken, Grilled Shrimp Skewers, Grilled Mahi or other fresh fish filet to name a few!
And here is a pic of the fence gate that was built in 95 degree heat today – gotta get the next pasture ready for our beautiful girls to farrow a new litter!
