We have a learning curve to overcome.
There is is my story. The other day when our grill arrived around the same time as all our fresh vegetables, we had all sorts of ides about how we could try out the grill. Of course, the corn on the cob was going to be grilled. But how do you go about grilling corn? Husk or no husk, that is the question.
After a very quick google search, as in we were already preparing dinner when the took place, we decided no husk in foil would be the best option for a first time go. We added a bit of chopped garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, and chipolte pepper. The pepper gave it an extra smoky flavor. I was in heaven.
Then, there was the relish. Mr. J is somewhat of a hot dog fanatic. He likes his hot dogs. And he especially likes his toppings. His goal this fall in Chicago: sample as many Chicago style hot dogs as possible.
1/4 C Bread and Butter pickles, chopped
1/4 C red onion, chopped
5 cherry tomatoes, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 Tbsp pickled Jalopenos, chopped
Mix all together.
Mr. J has come up with some pretty crazy concotions in the past. Some are delicious, others not so much. This relish however is great. Not too salty. The bread and butter pickles are sweet but pair nicely with the sharpness of the jalopenos.
On a completely different note, look what popped up this weekend. They are finally turning red!
After a few mishaps with a very mean deer, and lots of trips in and outdoors for protection, our tomato plant is finally going great. We now have four tomatoes turning red and about eight others. I am so happy!
What is your favorite thing to grill?
Do you like hot dogs?
Hope you have a great week!
