"Marshmallows, chocolate and crackers are yummy!"

Well, the weather was in the mid 30s today. No wind. Perfect time for winter grilling. I had some steaks and zucchini. The steaks got some gray salt before going on the grill. The zucchini was grilled plain and got tossed into a quick vinaigrette.

Instead of cutting all the air to the coals when I am done cooking, I sometimes leave the vent open a little. The temperature drops while we eat, but the heat comes back quickly when the lid comes off. Once the coals are fired up...the marshmallows come out.

We made a bunch of smores. After her first smore, my oldest daughter imparted these words of wisdom, "Marshmallows, chocolate and crackers are yummy!" It was a good time.

  1. Steaks and marshmallows in the winter!

    I would so be bragging about that if I were your kiddos. "Oh YEAH?! Well MY dad grilled stuff AND we got to make smores outside! Hah!"
