We've had good food prepared and consumed in our kitchen and off the grill this month so let's see what photos I have to share.
We are fans of Trader Joe's store and picked up some good deals there recently. The produce is so fresh and the prices are very good. Can't beat the deal on Beaujolais or cheeses so we stock up on those when we can shop.
Balsamic onions - these are very good roasted along side a chicken. Recipe may be found HERE. You can spend a fortune on balsamic vinegar (I don't). I don't buy the cheapest brand but wait until a nice one is on sale.
The center of a roasted onion is so tender, I highly recommend it. This one also has Dijon and lemon butter base brushed on it, then drops of balsamic.
A few posts back I shared the grilled asparagus. Can't see as I can eat asparagus now any other way. Ok, maybe in quiche - but grilled asparagus in quiche would be good too.
Anyway, Jama made a comment about "rafting" the asparagus with skewers so they wouldn't fall through the grill slots. Brilliant! Shout out to Jama Rattigan for a great idea.
The outside kitchen is the big Weber grill. I celebrated a birthday recently and that means I get to pick the meal. I had been wanting kebabs for a bit so, Doug skewered the asparagus and tossed the kebabs on the grill together.
Just what I wanted!
Here is the actual kitchen where we eat most of the time. Weather permitting we like to sit outside but it's been so very steamy lately. We haven't reached official summer yet so hope this isn't a sign of a long blazingly hot summer. You can see Aja snuffling around near the oven area.
That's a wrap for In My Kitchen. Thank you for hosting, Sherry.
