I tend to be a it slow at times. I see things, or trends, that interest me but I drag my feet about trying them, for whatever reason.
Maybe it is Mr Picky that I live with? Ya, let's use that excuse.
Sometimes I just see something that makes me go "Oooh", but figure he will think it is strange. Why this even crosses my mind I have no idea. As I have said in the past, 99.9% of the time he likes what I make and he has never refused to eat something that I have put in front of him. But sometimes just getting that "look" irks the crap out of me and my evil twin wants to pop him right in the head......that evil twin, she can be crazy I tell ya!!
Anyway, all violence aside, I actually got my rear in gear and made this grilled lettuce I have been hearing so much about. I have to admit, even I was kind of thinking "Whoop-de-doo how can grilling lettuce make it so special?" but my curiosity got the best of me and I had to try it!
OK, are you ready?
Wait for it.....
Pardon the How I Met Your Mother reference there, I couldn't help myself!
But all joking aside, just that little bit of time on the grill makes all of the difference in the world! A little bit of that char flavor and a kiss of smoke? OoohhhhEmmmGeeee it was good! Now I want to grill all of the greens in the house. I think Kevin is currently hiding all of my house plants with fears I may throw them on the grill for dinner!
Seriously though, all of my greens are going on the grill from now on! Holy smokes gang (haha that was grilling humor.....WOW Bobbi get a grip!) this is a trend that maybe with me for quite some time. So take it from me, don't be afraid, get those greens on the grill people!!
