As predicted at the end of my April post, May was most definitely a return to outdoor cooking, as my grill, and to a lesser extent, my smoker, got lots of use! Being outside, in nice weather, brought many smiles and moments of happiness. There was also the joy of having fewer dishes to clean (lol) afterwards, especially with the grill.
In addition, I took a trip back to my adopted/second hometown of Cleveland, which generated it's own fun gastronomic highlights and food adventures.
Starting off the month with some smoked turkey wings.
I'm getting great use out of my grilling basket...this time cooking up some hericot verts to accompany that night's chicken thighs.
I surprised my brother, sister-in-law and good friend when I ordered the plant-based, Impossible Burger, from Michael Symon's B-Spot back in Cleveland.*
Grilled simplicity...steak and corn on-the-cob.
