Well, the counters and sink are installed and I must say they look great! I'll have pictures up tomorrow sometime. In a few weeks we'll have everything painted and the cabinets done and I can say I finally understand why my dad used to take holidays when he was doing any kind of reno work. It's almost impossible to be enthusiastic about priming walls or anything of the sort after a 12 hour work day!
That being said, since our weather has been great and the stove has been unplugged, this months Cooking Light magazine had some great grilling recipes for me to try. Our favourite was Grilled Fiesta Shrimp. We did make a few modifications - I couldn't find the can of black beans I had in the pantry and I dumped some hot sauce in this to kick it up a notch.
Not the most beautiful picture in the world is it? Kind of looks like the dogs breakfast. I will say, the cheese is not absolutely necessary. I used a Mexican cheese blend and can't say it did anything for the dish. Maybe a jalapeno jack would've been better?? But the ease of this dish made up for all of that. Throw some tin foil down, layer your shrimp, cheese and corn and then toss on the bbq for 15 minutes. That simple - perfect for a hot night after work.
