Red Potatoes on the Grill

I love these red potatoes in the foil packet.

I am one of those Americans that like steak and potatoes!

I love potatoes in any shape and form.

  2. Place chopped potatoes, butter, salt and pepper in the middle of the foil.
  3. Roll up the edges on the foil to create a packet.
  4. Place on the top rack of the grill for about 45 minutes with the grill on high.

Lemon Lime Porkchops

If you haven’t noticed by now but I LOVE to grill…

I doesn’t even have to be summer time, I have been known to grill in the middle of winter (with several inches of snow on the ground).

However, sometimes chicken gets a little boring and I’ll be honest I can’t afford to have steak every night, that’s when I bring in the pork chops. Pork chops are another great alternative.

I try not to assume that people know how to cook (even the simple things)…

I have relatives, I won’t say any names, that can barely boil water for noodles.

Here is how I cook corn on the cob…unfortunately I haven’t mastered how to cook it on the grill.

Sweet BBQ Chicken!

I’m in love with my grill…like I forgot how much I loved grilling until I’ve gone through a very long winter and haven’t been able to grill. I have a very strong feeling that my oven won’t be used very much this summer…

I did not make the noodles or the bread…I did cook the bread on the grill (which is quite amazing).

I tend to make a few of these and throw them in the freezer and just thaw it when I want to grill some BBQ chicken. Yes, I am lazy like that.
