# 12 Thrill of the Grill – Glazed Peaches

#12 So as we inch towards summer here in New England, our collective minds turn to the outdoors as we’ve been couped up all winter dealing with snow storm after snow storm x2. So as we head towards the warmer months our bodys long for the warm sun and some beach time. I also think of firing up the grill. Actualy I grill all winter long but it’s so much easier in the warm months vs. Slogging through drifts just to grill my steaks. With my summer steaks I’m also thinking a few icy cold summer drinks. But those will make for another future post, so stay tuned.

Back to the grillin. #12 is Grilled Glazed Peaches.
Toss 4 quartered peaches, 3 Tbl spoons brown suger, 2 Tbl spoons butter and a healthy pinch of cinnamon on a sheet of foil. Form a packet. Grill over medium – high heat for 12 minutes. Pour yourself Two cold Stellas and enjoy!

Thank You Thursday Continues week 15- Boston Red Sox and Whole Foods

Thanks to Whole Foods Markets and the Boston Red Sox!
And if u know me than u know that the Red Sox r not my favorite team. Anyway, when it comes to fighting hunger the Sox score a home run with me though. As the tradition continues, thanks to both groups for every time a Red Sox player crosses home plate on a Friday night game at Fenway, Whole Foods donates $100.00 dollars to Project Bread.  Project Bread’s a local Boston nonprofit whose mission it is to help eliminate hunger in the area. Whole Foods makes the perfect partner with the Sox because they’re focused on supplying high quality, nutritious food to the people who need it most. The Sox average about $10,000. per year. Just think what they could raise on a good year!

# 11 Thrill of the Grill-Garlic Potatoes

This recipe may not be new but it’s one of my old stand bys that I use when camping. Whether we’re car camping or backpacking, its always a hit. If we tend to go deeper woods and more remote, you need to plan and pack accordingly.
OK now, Garlic potatoes. 4 good sized potatoes (red, new or idaho) washed and dried. Cut the p’s into small cubes and into 2 piles. Peel an onion, vadilla is my onion of choice, but you can use any that you may like and make 4-6 cuts down then turn the onion and make 4-6 cuts the other way, then slice to give you very small cubes. Or just mince. I like my onion pieces somewhat bigger than minced.
Divide half and half and mix with the P’s. Peel 1 clove garlic and smash it, divide half and half. Toss all ingredients of both piles togeter, Mound in middle of large sheets of foil. Generously salt and pepper. Slice 4 tablespoons sliced salted butter onto each pile. Wrap each packet with room for steam. Lay out on hot grill. Grill for 30 minutes . Test a packet with fork. If p’s are soft, There done. If not 5 more minutes. Remove, don’t burn yourself when opening. You may need to add snother slice of butter on, maybe. Picking the burned potatos from the bottom, delish. Beware the foil stuck to the p’s. though. Crack open 2 Frosty cold Anchor Steams and enjoy. Serves 2.
