What's Cookin' in the Parsonage?

I made a very simple dinner yesterday because of still dealing with the flu, but I saved a menu and pictures of something I made a couple weeks ago for a time like this...

Summertime means grilling out!  Even on a Sunday this dinner can be assembled and ready to throw on the grill when you get home from church, and it won't heat up your kitchen because the whole thing can be done in a foil package outside!

1 pkg. (14 oz) smoked turkey kielbasa, sliced
2 large potatoes, cut into wedges
1 each green, sweet red and yellow peppers cut into 1-in pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
4 tsp lemon juice
4 tsp Olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Place 4 squares of foil on the counter and divide the kielbasa, potatoes, peppers and onion among the four squares.  Drizzle with lemon juice and oil; sprinkle with garlic powder, pepper and salt.

Fold the foil around the meat and vegetables and seal tightly.

Cook on Medium-high grill for 30-35 minutes or till potatoes are tender.  You don't need to turn it or flip it.  There aren't even any pans to clean!

I cooked my corn in boiling water, but next time I think I'll add it to the meat and veggies as well!  You can't get any simpler than that!

Let me give you a little tip that I learned at a restaurant recently regarding corn on the cob.  Butter the corn, then sprinkle it with grated Parmesan Cheese.  This takes a good thing and turns it into spectacular!

I haven't made these in a long time, but here's a great dessert to go with the grilled dinner!  Banana boats.  You could also add ice cream after it comes off the grill!  That would bump it up to a Banana split boat!

What's been cookin' in your kitchen...or on your grill?

With love,

I made something like that (in my oven) tonight. It was hamburger patties, onions and potatoes with Lawry's seasoning...wrapped up in foil. It made the potatoes taste like they'd cooked in a roast all day! Yum!

Ooooo that sounds good! There have to be lots of good combos for this meal!
