On-the-Grill Shabbat Menu
Where I live in the Midwest, the winters can get pretty harsh. That’s why, when summer rolls around, I always try to take advantage and bring more of our family activities (and the mess!) outdoors. We do crafts outside, have meals outside when the weather permits, and of course, we bring the cooking outside too.
Grilling does require some hand holding and I would not say that it’s mess free, but it keeps the kitchen from turning into a sauna. What I forget after every year, though, is it also requires you to focus more since it’s not your normal cooking routine. And, as a result, it means I am more present. It’s ideal for disconnecting (from phones, work, screens) and reconnecting (to family, noticing that it’s still light out until bedtime).
Take advantage of grilling this summer—as if you needed reasons to go outside—and all the fringe benefits that come along with it. That great grill flavor isn't just about the char; it’s about the memories!
