I made a tasty veggie pizza on the grill last night. My pizza stone doesn’t fit in the tiny convection oven we have, but it does fit on top of the grill. Whole wheat crust from Trader Joe’s, baby spinach, red onion, red pepper and sliced mushrooms. . .fresh mozzerella. . .all nice and bubbly by the time it was done.
El yummo. I’ll definitely be doing that again. it makes for a nice way to use up veggies you have lying around.
Tonight it’s chicken on the grill. . .I’ve got this marinade that was on DCist yesterday.
Based on the citrus vinaigrette by Sally Schneider in A New Way to Cook.
4 T. orange juice
4 T. balsamic vinegar
1 t. Kosher salt
8 T. extra virgin olive oil
4 T. grated orange zest
2 t. ground pepper
3 T. minced fresh basil (optional)
3 t. minced fresh tarragon (optional)
I’m rather ready for a nice relaxing weekend. . .some quality time with moosebraying. . .and with Miller (the dog and probably the beer too). . .perhaps a viewing of the new X Men movie. . .more grilling, more chilling and some yard work. . .dang grass pollen . ..it means I get to do all the yard work this weekend. oh well.
vive la 3 day weekend!
