Just Grillin' It

I've been out of town for the last 6 days putting on a horse expo and trade show and was exhausted when I got home yesterday.  Thankfully, Matt was game to take advantage of the gorgeous weather we had and opted to break out the charcoal grill for supper!

I pulled out a package of T-bones from the freezer, but was a bit stumped on what we'd have for sides.  Luckily, I found some romaine hearts in the fridge and had Matt buy some sweet potatoes at the store.  Supper, check!

Oh, and there was wine for me and Blue Moon for Matt!


Somebody wanted samples...


The grilled romaine is so yummy and very easy to whip up that it really doesn't need a recipe, but this is the gist:

Grilled Romaine
Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 head of romaine, cut lengthwise down the center and washed
olive oil
garlic powder
salt
pepper

Directions:
Drizzle olive oil on all sides of the cut romaine.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Place over indirect heat from your grill.  You'll want to rotate the romaine so you get it nice and wilted on all three sides (the cut side and the two rounded sides...think of it as a triangle), but it shouldn't take more than 2-3 minutes per side.



I'm linking up with a these awesome gals (Jenni, Khala, Samantha ,Reneé and Mary) for another spot of Tuesday Tea and a new link up, Delicious Dish Tuesday!

  8. What does grilled Romaine taste like?!?! I don't like warm lettuce... but is it different when it's intentionally grilled? :)

    I can't think of the last time we grilled out......... And there's another snow storm on the way so I don't think we will be grilling out anytime soon. :(

    Thanks for sharing!!
