asparagus

Spicy and sweet

 

This summer weather has me in an eternal grilling mood.

Also my basil plant is finally leafy enough I can cook with it!

Found a recipe for avocado basil pasta that was simple enough to assemble on my deck while I grilled some Spicy Honey Chicken and salmon burgers I found in my freezer while looking for chicken and only finding one breast.

Recipes below – I grilled my avocados for some extra flavor and the chicken glaze was less messy than the recipe led me to believe so fear not! Did get some significant flare ups the next time I grilled though so burn it off before you finish grilling – or clean your grate unlike my lazy self. I also grilled some asparagus for a snack while I was cooking the rest of my dinner – easy and tasty and fast. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and grill till bright green preferably rotating a few times without being lost into the grill.
