Guess who has been grilling often now that it's summertime?  It's quick and the food is always so much tastier.  Plus, it's a great time to get together with family and friends for some good food and conversation.  

It's National Grilling Month and we are going to celebrate with some Pompeian Grapeseed Oil and OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean Blend.  Hubs usually grills steaks, chicken, shrimp, sausage  and ribs with an assortment of veggies on the side.  The marinades and rubs are pretty standard and simple yet the flavor is     rich from the grill.  He usually grills at least once a week for dinner and then on the weekends we grill at his parents at least twice a month.  They sure do love to grill because we can sit outdoors and the kiddos can play in the backyard our Yorkie Lucky - who loves the scraps of food and begs for more.  





We just went to our friends home the other week and they grilled up some delicious ribs and steak.  We also had a grill fest during our 4th of July celebration with burgers, tri tip, steak and other meats.  It was even nicer when after a lazy and slow afternoon of eating and conversing, to jump into the pool for splash time.  

Did you know that you can make grilling healthier by using Pompeian Grapeseed Oil or OlivExtra Premium Mediterranean blend?  I didn't until now.  My knowledge of olive oil was limited and I just knew to look for extra virgin.  There are so many delicious recipes to grill this summer and Hungry Girl's Jalapeno Peach Shrimp Skewer looks scrumptious!  I have been on a jalapeno kick lately and Kenzie loves shrimp as well as expanding her palate to include spicy foods so this recipe is perfect for our family.  The minimal ingredients required as well as the quick cook time gets a thumbs up for me.

  3. Those look delicious! We love making ribs on the grill, but my husband LOVES shrimp! I think we're going to have to break out our grill! :) I love Pompeian EVOO, but I don't think I've used it for grilling before. I'll have to try it!

  5. Delicious! Going to have to try this--I just got a bunch of peaches that would be amazing in this recipe! I love olive oil, but my grilling with it has been restricted to pizza, so I think I should branch out.
