Did I mention that the chicken-apple sausages come in packages of 16? Half of them were in the refrigerator still following last Thursday’s mid-week grilling adventure (OK, maybe it wasn’t that thrilling) and begging to be eaten. Who am I to argue with a chicken-apple sausage, much less 8 of ’em?
On the grill:
- Chicken-apple Sausages with Onions & Peppers
- Grill Fries
- Grilled Bananas
Once again the Weber OTG was put into service. The chicken-apple sausages were cooked the same way as last week, which was grilled and then combined on a french roll with some grilled onions and peppers. SWMBO suggested we vary the grill fries and use a combination of olive oil, granulated garlic, a little salt, and some rosemary. The rosemary got a spice grinder treatment and was mostly powder by the time it made it to the potatoes. Apparently this was a take-off on something the local Burgerville had recently; I wouldn’t know as I missed out on that trip. They did turn out pretty tasty, although next time I will add a bit more salt.
Dessert was grilled bananas, as always a nice treat to end the meal. After that, it was sit back and enjoy the evening…

Tonight we ate on the deck for the first time. Ever. It helps that the new mascot is being trained properly; other than the object lesson that was a sandwich roll, dinner was very uneventful after she found out she wasn’t pack leader and the goodies on the table didn’t belong to her. After a couple of corrections, she settled down, turned away from the table (and the remains of the sandwich roll), and pretty much ignored us. Perfect manners from the pooch. I guess that means we will be “eating out” more often in the future…
