BBQ season is wonderful. There are so many foods to cook outdoors. We look forward to bbq cooking all winter. I know some people can bbq all year round but we only do it from spring to fall. It just gets too cold and windy and snowy and it takes ages for the bbq to reach cooking temperature.
One of our favourites is to make foil packets … of potatoes, onions, mushroom, and veggies.
New potatoes that are scrubbed and sliced with a dollop of butter and then wrapped in foil come out crispy and delicious.
I’m sure you all measure like me … a dollop, a smidge, a pinch, a dab etc. I don’t cook with salt or pepper but do add different spices. Adjust seasonings to your taste.
A different way to cook fresh beans from the garden is to slice, add butter and wrap in foil.
Onions slices wrapped in foil give off a wonderful aroma while cooking and boy do they taste good.
Mushrooms cooked the same way are very tasty. Sometimes I wrap the onions and mushrooms in the same foil packet. I’ve even added a few small tomatoes.
Zuchinni slices brushed with olive oil and laid on foil give them a different taste. The slices are flipped a few times during cooking so that each side gets cooked.
At the same time you are cooking your choice of meat, just add the foil packets along side, turn a few times and enjoy a delicious meal right from the bbq. Be careful when opening the foil packets as they really get hot inside. I usually pierce the foil to let the steam out before opening them up.
Serve and enjoy.

Did you know that botanically speaking zucchini is actually a fruit along with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, beans and others that have seeds inside them. But we call them all vegetables.
