blast from the past

Going through the camera, I found some pictures from a quick summer meal that I grilled up for the lady and myself. It must've been hot that day, because I was thinking about complimentary summer flavors. Hence, you get Tequila-Lime Marinated Chicken, Red Pepper Rice and Grilled Asparagus.

First, I marinated some chicken tenderloins in a mixture of tequila, lime juice, butter and cilantro. While those were sitting, I started my fire and cooked some rice. I also made an asparagus raft with some bamboo skewers. Fire's ready: throw 'em on...



When grilling with charcoal, heat distribution is never even, so you've got to space things out to make sure nothing gets burned or dried out.



While these were cooking, I went back in to check on my pepper and onion sautee. I chopped up a red bell pepper, a yellow bell pepper and an onion and sauteed them in olive oil with some sea salt and black pepper. Uh oh, don't forget about the fire - time to flip that chicken...


Grill food is done! Add the sauteed pepper mix to the rice, plate and enjoy!



I already miss summer...
