We are grill people. We love to grill everything: hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, steak, you name it. However, we had to leave our grill in Spokane upon the move last summer because it would not fit in the U-Haul (a major problem that comes with moving so frequently....things just get chucked out the window with the stress of everything and you miss them later). This weekend I left Dan with one of my credit cards for "emergencies" while I was gone (his wallet got stolen last week. Awesome). I came home and we had a grill. Apparently it was an "emergency."
Last night was the grill's ceremonial first BBQ and we made shish kabobs with steak, squash, zucchini, onions, and pineapple. That is when I got my great idea, why not BBQ fruit? I mean if you can do pineapple surely you can do bananas and strawberries, right? RIGHT?
Dan thought I was crazy but I googled it and you most certainly CAN grill bananas and strawberries. I made a sauce that was 1/4 cup butter, 2 tbs lemon juice, 2 tbs honey and brushed it onto the fruit (but not the pineapple). Then, Dan grilled the fruit for about five minutes on each side.
Lo' and behold it was delicious! I'm serious! It tasted really good! Who knew BBQ bananas and strawberries could be so great. We also grilled some pineapple and I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them for dessert. Fantastic. I love summer.
