Dinner was Salad and Soup.
Salad (red and green butter lettuce, iceberg lettuce, vine tomato, broccoli, cauliflower, avocado (sprinkled with lime juice), mushrooms, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, sliced almonds and shredded cheddar dressed with garlic and basil vinaigrette), sliced roasted chicken breast on the side and



Soup (canned cheddar cheese soup with fresh raw broccoli and cauliflower cooked in the soup till tender and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar added) and lemon/lime soda (fresh squeezed lime and lemon, seltzer and Ideal sugar sub).

Following the beer theme.....Warmed up "beer butt" chicken, rice pilaf, steamed broccoli and green salad. Maybe more of the raspberry/ rhubarb crisp for dessert.

Nice job, Dave. Chillin' and grillin'.
Thanks! I'm going to use that thing as much as I can this summer. So be on the lookout for lots of new recipes!!

I even think my wok will fit on the side burner and work better there than on my electric stove in the house. Outdoor stir fry??

It was chicken, bacon and chorizo stir fry with steamed rice - had quite a kick - perhaps a bit too much chilli :) and brownie in a cup for desert!! Lazy but oooohhhh so good!

Looks marvelous, Dave! And thanks for the pictures because I am going to show them to DH - we still haven't got our grill and these will help me show that he would use all the bells and whistles on it!

Here's more to bolster your side: Besides using the side burner to cook the pasta, I cooked the veg on one side on medium (burners 1 & 2) and then melted the butter with the evoo and garlic on high on the 4th burner then turned it to low to let the things meld together. That also let me move the cooked veg off to the side when I needed to. Plus the grill baskets fit but better on a larger grill.
