Have you grilled at all this summer?!? One of my favorite things to do during the summer is have a cookout and grill up classics like hot dogs and corn on the cob. While the extent of our grilling this weekend will be indoor grilling, I couldn't help but think back on our experience grilling at Brooklyn Bridge Park last summer. Talk about a city moment! I can't think of a more stunning backdrop for grilling. It was such a fun family memory and I'm so glad we snapped photos and some video to capture how great it was.
It was around this time that I fell in love with Halloumi Cheese. (or Grilling Cheese) It's the one thing you're probably not planning on grilling that you SHOULD! This ingredient is so fun to work with and fairly fool proof. The texture is similar to feta cheese and the taste reminds me of queso fresco. It can be grilled or fried and is really mild. I like threading it onto my Marinated Veggie Skewers before throwing them onto the grill. Admittedly I eat all of the pieces of cheese first! It's addictive!! I found this exact brand at my Whole Foods today for only $4.99, which is worth every cent. Definitely pick some up for your grilling festivities this weekend!
