One of my favorite things about warm weather is grilling. It's so easy and clean-up is a breeze. We had grilled chicken sausage with onions and mushrooms tonight for dinner and it was wonderful. Serve with a salad and grilled asparagus and relax with a glass of wine while enjoying the warm weather.
This is so easy. You can use these basic ingredients or add your favorite vegetables.
1 package chicken, beef, or pork sausage sliced into medallions
8 oz. fresh button mushrooms, cut in half
1 large sweet onion, cut into chuncks
1 T. butter
salt and fresh ground pepper
Combine sausage and vegetables in a foil lined grilling pan. Cut up butter and sprinkle over sausage and vegetables. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over mixture. Salt and pepper then toss all ingredients to combine. Grill over medium heat until onion and mushrooms are tender. I like to let them caramelize a little. This should take about 30 minutes.
To make grilled asparagus, snap asparagus spears to break off the tuff ends. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill til tender and slightly caramelized. Place asparagus directly on the grill grate. Asparagus will take less time on the grill. Watch to make sure it doesn't burn.
My husband took a study break today and said he wanted a Starbuck's Frappuccino, but he didn't want to spend the time and money to go and get one. So I got out the blender and we came up with our own recipe. It was so easy to make and took less than 5 minutes. We are not big coffee drinkers. In fact I don't even like coffee icecream because it tastes too much like coffee, but this was really good. I used Taster's Choice instant coffee stick packets that I had gotten as free samples. I used one per recipe, but if you are a big coffee fan you might like to use two. We used Hazelnut and Vanilla flavors. I also used french vanilla hot cocoa mix. This recipe is an inexpensive and quick way to make a delicious luxury drink at home.
1 Taster's Choice stick packet instant coffee (flavor of choice)
1 Tbsp. water
2 cups ice
2 - 3 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup half and half
1 packet hot cocoa mix
1. Dissolve instant coffee in 1 T. water.
2. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
3. Pour into glasses and serve with whipped cream and chocolate syrup if desired.
