I don’t know about you, but as soon as it starts warming up outside, I get in the mood to turn on the grill. I love that cooking outside doesn’t heat up the house and that I get to enjoy a breeze and the birds chirping while preparing a meal. There’s something idyllic about it, especially when my daughter brings something out to the deck to play with while I flip burgers or stir the grilled veggies.
When company is coming in the spring and summer months, I turn to grilling often for easy entertaining. Make a pasta salad ahead of time, pop some oil-brushed veggies in the grill basket, and cook your meat right before your guests arrive, and you’ve got an easy plan for the night.
