Let's Grill





This weekend while in Texas, we had several cookouts with my family.
On one of the days, my aunt prepared a huge meal: grilled meat, corn, a macaroni salad, rice, salsa, pico de gallo, and she even baked a cake! We call it the pineapple cake, but I think it's known by other names. (it's vanilla flavor and toppings include: crushed pineapple, sweet condensed milk mixed with heavy cream, coconut, pecans and cherries!) It was very good. So good in fact, that I didn't have time to take more photos. It literally disappeared from my plate within seconds!

Are you planning to cook on the grill this summer
 I'd love to hear what's on the menu.
Any favorite recipes?

  1. I'm not a fan of grilling...or shish kebobs. But my husband loves it!!!...But I 'do' love cake! ^_^ And this one almost reminds me of my 'Dump Cake'. Although I use whipped cream instead of icing. It never lasts long either! I think the pineapples and cherries make it disappear! :-))

  2. If in doubt about good things coming from the US, think of grilling !
    Your barbeque tradition is absolutely superior !

    And if the thing works for smoking too, lucky you as grilling/smoking is super!

    Smokers live happy :-)

  3. They look soooo good! The dessert sounds so yummy! How fun you got to grill outside. Food tastes the best when you cook and eat outside.
