Getting Ready to Grill This Weekend

Alrighty! This coming holiday weekend is historically a great one for grilling. To get you ready, here are some ideas:

  • Grilled Local Otto's Chicken Wings - My go-to crowd-pleaser marinade for chicken when grilling is equal parts olive oil and apple cider vinegar with crushed garlic, salt and pepper. But, I'm thinking about upping my game this weekend, and trying out one of these 12 best recipes from The Spruce Eats. My likely favorite among the dozen: Very Best Buffalo, though I have to admit it's mainly as an excuse to use some of our Salemville bleu cheese for dipping....
  • Grilled Loaded Cauliflower - I LOVED the loaded fries at The Alamo Drafthouse (he groans longingly), and miss them every day. Well, I just came across this amazing looking Loaded recipe using grilled cauliflower, and topped with scallions, cheese, (bacon if you're on that wagon), sriracha a la Alamo, or why not try with PFC's housemade vegan ranch?
  • Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Asparagus - Yep. Enough said. 
  • Simple Grilled Michigan Mushrooms - on a Taste of Home top 10 grilled vegetable recipes list, I found this one for Contest-Winning Grilled Mushrooms. Simple: salt, butter, dill. Grill.
  • Finally, I always love grilled fruit! How about some grilled green Bartlett pears? Or grilled cinnamon apples with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? Or, for fans of Bananas Foster, how about grilled bananas served with a splash of rum (away from the fire!!) and some ice cream as well.
I don't know about you, but I am getting excited about eating this weekend. Check out the store and Kalamazoo Farmers Market for the VERY BEST local, delicious, fresh, and friendly food experiences in Kalamazoo.

See you soon!
