Back to reality - kind of
How do I even follow up a series of amazing cake baking and decorating? I go back to normalcy. As normal as spring break is in unseasonably warm weather. Thank you weather gods for not making me feel so terrible about my lack of a tropical vacation.
Warm weather makes me a happy girl! Sun on my skin (with sunscreen of course), windows open, flowers blooming, long runs outside, and grilled food. Mmmmmmm. Too bad it's only spring break, and I have to go back to school in a few days. Oh well, I'll take my mini vacay any day.
|This is NOT another boring house salad - promise!!!!|
To start I bought 3 heads of romaine lettuce and sliced them in half (leave the ends on)
Next I drizzled them with 1 t of olive oil and 1 t of lemon juice each.
Then I put them on the preheated grill, for 3 minutes.
I was scared to do this too close to the flames, but I would move them down a rack next time to get them more charred. The result is a crisp (yet slightly warm), smoky lettuce.
|mmmm doesn't that look good|
Charred lettuce - who would have thunk it?
Question of the day -
What's one new thing you want to try to grill this summer?
