That is my resolution for the New Year among a few others. After all grilling is the healthiest way to cook– especially lean meats, fish and vegetables. I packed on more than a few pounds this holiday with wonderful home cooked meals and deserts almost every night. Grilling only works with real food, and I need to limit myself to real food and a little less of it at that. A little less cheer will help too. My wife and I are whipped after another whirlwind holiday with family, friends and out of town guests and the recovery process started today. We are back to empty nester status as of this afternoon when our youngest headed back to school. It was great to have them all home and it is great to have them all happy to get back to their worlds too.
My middle one snuck out with the left over brisket from our Low & Slow New Year’s Day Party. We had brisket, beans and collard greens at a friends farm. The day was complete with a sauna and polar bear jump into the cold lake. What a way to cure what ails you! A new tradition has been established I hope. The bed & breakfast that was our home is now closed, but the grills are still warm. May your grill warm you and nourish you and your family and friends in 2009. Grill More, Eat Less!
