The weather has warmed up and people are out in their backyards grilling! There are so many wonderful ways to cook up a meal on the grill. One of my favorite grilling books is License to Grill. The recipes are so delicious. The results are amazing. It's not a gluten-free cookbook, but it's easy enough to make modifications, like using gluten-free barbecue sauce. Barbecue sauce is one of those products that is not always gluten-free. It often has modified food starch in its ingredients which is made out of either corn or wheat and often doesn't clarify on the label. Stubbs Barbecue Sauce and Sweet Baby Rays are among those that are actually labelled gluten-free. Another gluten-free grilling issue that could come up is using a communal grill. If you are gluten intolerant and using a communal grill at a park or at an apartment or condominium complex this could pose a problem. People often cook their bread directly on the grill. One way to solve this problem is by cooking hobo packs. You make hobo packs by putting meat, potatoes and vegetables in individual aluminum foil pouches and throwing them on the grill. We have also used a grilling wok before. This would also solve the problem of grilling on a communal grill and is also just something different to try.

About This week's Menu
Sunday is a grilling night. Hamburgers, Corn and Salad are on the menu. Monday is a meatless dinner, but it's hearty and satisfying : Lentil Shepard's Pie. Tuesday we're having Chicken Mango Salad. I'll serve this with crispy corn tortillas. Wednesday we're having Hobo Packs on the grill. Thursday is Fish Taco night. Friday night's meal is Chicken Kebabs. These can also be cooked on the grill.
