My favorite tool for this week is the grill. I think a lot of people would say they really like their grill. Where we live, we can grill about nine months or more out of the year. But this time of year, when it is hot, we use it a lot. We cook on it at least twice a week, sometimes more. The main reason we use it, is so that we do not have to heat up the house by using the oven.
I like to grill a lot of chicken at once and then use the chicken in different ways. We use it for salads, sandwiches, in pasta, on pizza, and more. It is a good way to cook once but use the meat for several days. We also cook hamburgers, hotdogs, grilled vegetables, and even pizza on it.
I know in a lot of families, the husband grills. In our home I do most of the grilling. The main reason for this is that I like to have dinner ready when my husband gets home. He works long hours and I feel bad asking him to grill something when he gets home. I figure the last thing he wants to do after working all day is to stand by the grill and cook dinner. It seems much better to me, if I grill and then dinner is ready when he gets home. But that is just what works for us. I know a lot of woman who won’t go near a grill. I actually enjoy it. It is a change of pace from my normal cooking.
So, do you use your grill a lot?
