I prefer my food grilled. Almost all of it. Except that one time I tried to grill a sheet of pasta and it turned out to be a catastrophe. Shocking, right? I thought if I could grill a pizza, why not pasta? Rookie mistake I guess.
Anyway, summer grilling is definitely a favorite for a lot of us. From corn on the cob to burgers, chicken, veggies and fruit, it’s all great. But once the summer heat is over, we tend to gravitate towards indoor cooking, am I right? I know I do. There’s nothing like chili and soup in the fall.
But, this year, I’m being brave and taking my grilling to new levelâ€”a new fall level (at least until it starts snowing, then I’ll be hibernating in the indoor kitchen until Easter). I’m cold 10 months out of the year â€¦ yes, I’m serious, and yes I realize this makes me look a little wimpy â€¦ so this is a big step for me. I’m putting on my long underwear and college sweatshirt and going out there.
But, nicely enough, if you haven’t gotten around to getting yourself an indoor grill (a.k.a grill pan), I highly recommend it. Living in an apartment with no balcony does not make grilling easy for me, so I do plenty of work on it. I know it’s not the same. You don’t get the same authentic charcoal flavors. But if you miss those flavors, there are plenty of spices in the spice aisle that can make that happen. Then grilling really can be all year round. Snow and all.
I’ve found a lot of great grilling recipes to use throughout the Autumn months. From pork chops to grilled apple slices, I’m really looking forward to trying some of them year. This is one of them from Grillin’ Fools. Apple Pumpkin Ribs … Doesn’t it sound awesome?
