Spring has officially started and we kicked off the season with grilled pork chops. Now that we have a backyard we plan to spend most of the spring and summer grilling.
SP seasoned the chops simply with salt and pepper. The smoke from the hard wood that we use gives the chops great color and flavor.
I cooked the broccoli in a pan with olive oil, rough chopped garlic and a little red pepper flake.
The spears retained their beautiful green color with just a hint of char around the edges. The flavor of the garlic and chili flakes made this broccoli addictive. SP said I should cook broccoli like this from now on.
Since SP gets home well before I do, he was able to actually bake the baked potatoes in the oven.
He rubs the outside with butter and salt then wraps them in tinfoil to bake. I topped mine with salt, pepper, a little butter and some sour cream.
