Grilling in the Rain

The chef and sous-chef were hard at work tonight preparing a delicious dinner. It rained again, but that didn’t stop the chef from grilling. 

Luckily he had an excellent sous-chef to assist. It amazes me that the sous-chef can be completely asleep, but the moment someone enters the kitchen or opens the refrigerator, she immediately makes an appearance and waits. She patiently waits for something to fall on the floor or rather to be given something and than once you exit the kitchen she goes in like a little vacuum cleaner and makes sure there is NOTHING left on the floor.

And please don’t laugh, the hair where she had the radiation treatment is not growing back so she looks like she has a crow feet… She is ready for halloween;)

I love eating food on skewers. The chef on the other hand is not a fan and he reminds me of it every time he prepares it. I think it’s the stacking of the food! The chef ran out of the skewers, so he just grilled the rest in the foil. If you ask me, the veggies just don’t taste the same if not on a skewer 😉

Since we have a new evening routine [Mili-Mali gets her bath around 7:30pm, than bottle and she is asleep by 8:30pm – I call it the 3Bs – bath – bottle – bed] the chef and I get to enjoy dinner. Of course the web cam is right there with us, just in case to make sure Mili-Mali is truly asleep…

I must say that I also participated in preparing tonight’s dinner. The chef cooked the potatoes and I added onion, salt, olive oil and vinegar and mashed it all together. Once mashed, I put it in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes. The colder the salad, the better.

The grilled mushrooms were the best thing about the dinner. They were so juicy and salty – we were fighting for them!


  • Wood skewers (soak them in water for about 30 minutes before using so they don’t burn)
  • Chicken red roasted tomatoes sausage
  • Zucchini
  • Bell peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • Vegeta


  1. Preheat grill
  2. Cut sausage and veggies into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Arrange sausage and veggies onto skewers any way you wish.
  4. In a small bowl, combine olive oil and vinegar. Brush onto kabobs, and then sprinkle sausage and veggies with salt and steak seasoning.
  5. Grill kabobs for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally.

It was another quick, healthy and easy dinner. Most of all it was delicious!!
