hot off the massive diet coke and popcorn experience, we move directly into Bacon Wrapped Summer 2005.
Inspiration hit several nights ago, while dining with jon on bacon-wrapped farmers-cheese-stuffed dates, a lovely pasta salad and grilled lamb, served with a charming, gosh, uh, well something red and good. given that most everything is better wrapped in bacon, it seems logical to declare this Bacon Wrapped Summer 2005. with a heavy grilling slant, of course. anyways, this is looking like a pretty exciting summer!
but before the Official Launch of Bacon Wrapped Summer 2005, we've had some tasty grilled meals. on monday, i went for a run and came back to tasty plumb grilled chicken (marinated in lime, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil) with ciabatta bread, a tasty farmers market salad (mixed mesclun, easter egg radishes, sugar snap peas). all with a lovely clos du bois chardonnay. we spread a blanket on the lawn and had ourselves a little picnic. sunday before was a baby shower with fantastic grilled shrimp done up with mild spices. and rockstar black bottom cupcakes. summer cookouts are such a good good thing.
