My friends and I had been itching to grill for quite a while. Finally, we had the perfect day. I marinated portabella mushroom caps and we brought brats and veggie burgers. John and some others also made chili which smelled excellent. We grilled parsnips which were delicious and I also slit a zucchini, stuffed it with goat cheese and poured the rest of my marinade over it and wrapped it in foil to grill. It was a bit overcooked, but quite tasty.
Our friend Ben invited us to share his community garden plot with him and this was the location of the first of hopefully many barbecues.
We just planted about 2 weeks ago, so obviously not much has shown yet. Soon we will have:
peas, black seeded lettuce, emerald oak lettuce, radishes, spinach, chard, parsley, dill, bok choy, carrots, scallions, purplette onions, oregano, thai basil, cinnamon basil, and beets
A highlight of this cookout was John and Harold's most recent homebrew, a delicious red ale. John recently invested in this keg system which I think we all appreciated yesterday.
