This coming weekend is the unofficial start of summer here in the United States: Memorial Day Weekend. It's often the start of grilling season, as well. Here are a few recipe ideas for your grill.
Barbecue sauce is a funny thing. Religion for some and with good reason. The complexities of making a good sauce are debated endlessly. This recipe relies heavily on the brown sugar and jam to create a caramelized glaze on whatever you decide to use it on.
Venison is lovely and very lean so it makes great burgers. This is a full quarter pound cheeseburger and only 313 calories and only 15 grams fat. You can make this with extra lean ground beef but it won't have quite the lovely wild flavor. Ground lamb makes a good burger as well but ask the butcher to grind you some from the shoulder so that it is very lean.
This recipe includes the pat of butter for your corn on the cob because it just wouldn't be corn without it. Take the pat and enjoy it. This recipe works well both on the grill and in the oven. The grill will give the corn a lovely charcoal flavor.
No other meal plan includes making extra for lunches and leftovers later in the week. This is truly a meal plan for the Real World! Recipes include Fettuccine Alfredo, Shrimp Fried Rice, and Taco Salad.
