Before we left on this trip back in April, we purchased a new portable tabletop propane grill, one that would travel in a bin of the motorhome. It was a nice one, stainless steel, two burners, and it came from Costco. We bought a wind screen for it as well. This picture shows the new grill in use when we were in Lone Pine.
|The grill cooked some mighty fine New York steaks!|
Wrong. It had fallen over, we discovered. When I opened it up to check it out, I saw that one of the burner tubes had broken off its moorings -- the spot welds holding it had given way. Being not certain of the stability of the other burner, we have discarded our nearly new barbecue grill! Suzy remembered seeing the identical grill at the Costco right up the hill above our park here in Carson City, so guess who headed up there and bought one today -- yup. There went another $100 added to our already bulging American Express credit card account.
For today's dinner we grilled some fresh pineapple slices to accompany some previously grilled chicken breasts, along with a side of teriyaki chow mein noodles. Here's how we fixed the pineapple:
|Start with a fresh golden ripe pineapple.|
|Twist off the top -- yes, that's how it's done.|
|Cut off the rind including the eyes.|
|Slice the pineapple into 1/2 inch slices, then remove the core.|
|After heating the grill to high, dip the slices into coconut milk...|
|...then into a mixture of turbinado sugar and cinnamon.|
|Place on the grill ...|
|Grill about six minuites per side ...|
|... and serve hot.|
But first ... just three pictures from yesterday's visit with family.
