A thing of beauty!
Grilled, Caramelized Onions
They are easy! On a large piece of foil, put thinly sliced Vidalia (or any sweeter onion) inside, add tiny bits of cubed butter (EB or whatever you like) probably about 1 Tbs per every two onions, organic brown sugar (about 1 tsp. per sliced onion), and sea salt (sprinkle generously over the onions). Mix with your hands. Fold up the foil into a nice packet. Add another piece of foil and wrap again, sealing up all the seams. Grill until tender and as caramelized as you want them.
Here's the foil packet as I was about to open it. You can see I unfolded the left side already.
Other wonderful things to grill in the packet:
Fresh, Jersey Asparagus (peeled, French style :-)
Green Beans with Salt and Sesame Oil
Really, any food that will fall through the grill cracks can be grilled in a foil packet. Don't forget it! Just add your seasonings and a little oil, mix with your hands, and fold up that packet. Yeah!
And, some gardening for you. I made Mother's Day planters for my mom, my husband's mom, and my sister:
Planted with Organic Basil and Organic Chives.
My son picked out the pots, I loved them!
Also basil & chives. This way I don't have to go outside to get them! I think I threw in a bunch of arugula, too, so, it's gonna be crazy in there.
Also, my artichokes have "taken," and I see new growth on them, my Scarlet Runners were raided by something that ate all the leaves off 3/5 of my plants (but left the two healthiest, largest ones), I have tons of primroses blooming, my fig tree is leafing out like crazy, and I put in my Zucchini Garden with four hierloom zucchini plants!
What are you guys cooking & planting?
