in·spi·ra·tion- The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative: “flashes of inspiration.”
Not to be confused with the medical definition of drawing air into the lungs. Although, when I feel inspired I tend to get excited, which causes me to breath heavy. So I supposed they tie together in the end. Sesame Street inspired me to eat a lot of cookies throughout my life, and cookies make me draw LOTS of air into my lungs.
I’ve been inspired, well more like someone I know has been inspired. After talking about purchasing a Barbie sized grill for a few weeks, Manfriend bought one! I think the grill party we had inspired him to take the plunge.
Widdle baby. Perfect sized grill for a ton of veggies, and a couple bean burgers. This has been dubbed as the “veggie grill.” No animal meats will ooze onto this grill. The meal that broke Char-Broil Charlie in was veg-tastic.
Grilled broccoli, Brussels, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms, and onion. The veggie tray is perfect for grilling the vegetables.
My favorite part about grilling is the lines that indent into whatever burger is made. I have officially been lined. That bean burger above was charred, lined, and attacked by my intestines. A new recipe including vital wheat gluten (protein protein PROTEIN!) was used, and I enjoyed it! I need to share my bean burger recipe soon! I was able to use some more Swiss chard from the garden to top the burger!
Of course something sugary was needed before I went into shock. If I go more than 2 hours without chocolate I will pass out. I’ll give you a guess as to which banana is mine..the one with 4 pieces of chocolate. I don’t mess around.
Since purchasing Charlie the Char-Broil (maybe someone else should name this one) my monkey of a man has been grilling any chance he gets. It’s called “man-time.” I am only invited when I put on my fake facial hair and baggy jeans. He’s taken the definition of inspiration to the extreme, getting creative in many foodie ways. I can’t complain, because I have benefited every time. Grilled pineapple that was soaked in lemon juice for an hour and then topped with coconut is life changing. Grill that now.
Q: What’s the best thing you have grilled? That pineapple was seriously life changing. Pizza too.
