I am on fire this grilling season! Well, not literally. That would be a bad thing. Although I did get pretty warm the last time I was out there...
I have so many ideas and my brain is getting overloaded with thoughts of meat and vegetables getting a nice char. From pork to chicken to steak, I've done them all already! They've all been great but these chops were the biggest hit with the boys so far. When first coming up with the recipe, I was trying to think of something slightly sweet. After reviewing some pantry items, I whipped up a little glaze.

When red peppers are on sale at the grocery store, I like to stock up and roast them for canning. Roasting peppers is so easy and when you do it in bulk, you'll save some money and always have some on hand!

I've made it a mission to eat more fish around here. It hasn't really been easy since my husband hates it, but I don't want my son to dislike it because of that. My plan: have it on nights when my husband is working! The grocery store a couple blocks away gets fresh fish in on Mondays and Wednesdays so every couple weeks (yes, I know it needs to be more and we're working on it) I'll pick up some cod*. It's my fish of choice for the moment because it's very mild, sturdy, and easy to cook. So far, my son has loved it every time I'm made it, too. This makes me so very happy.
