Saturday at the Grill

A couple friends came over to celebrate the summer-like weather. Here's what I did:

  1. Shrimp : shell-on shrimp marinated with lime, coriander, cumin, and Old Bay, grilled on skewers, then tossed in a bowl with some more lime juice and another shake of Old Bay.
  2. Pork: a faux filet marinated with lemon, minced garlic, and olive oil, grilled whole, and then sliced and tossed with a bit more olive oil and lemon juice
  3. Chicken: chicken breasts grilled whole then sliced and tossed with pesto (no parmesan) and a bit of balsamico
  4. Grilled salad: peppers and zucchini
  5. Beets: diced, steamed, tossed with oil, balsamico, rosemary, salt, and white pepper
  6. A big green salad.
  7. Dessert: vanilla pudding topped with stewed rhubarb
The pudding didn't set up at all (I guess I didn't get it hot enough after adding the corn starch), so we had it as a dessert soup instead, but otherwise everything was quite nice.
