I miss grilling. Soon!
1.) You can prepare a well-balanced meal entirely on a grill. It can be as healthy or unhealthy as you desire.
2.) Hanging around a grill is conducive to good conversation. Grilling requires some attention, so you probably should stay somewhat nearby, but not a lot, so conversation is acceptable.
3.) Grilling generally involves being outside. I am a big fan of al fresco dining and/or preparation.
4.) Grilling tends to keep kitchens clean. When it doesn’t, well, the mess probably didn’t have to happen in the kitchen.
5.) Quite frankly, the results are delicious.
