‘Cowboy’ grill packs
When you have a child who is a picky eater, you often need to get creative with naming your dishes. For example, the other evening I told Tiny we were making “cowboy packs” on the grill for dinner. (She is really into the cowboy/cowgirl thing right now.) It worked! She bee-bopped right up to the dinner table, excited and ready to try her “cowgirl” pack when it was ready.
To make these grill packs, I started with three large pieces of aluminum foil (one for each family member), spread out on the counter. I sprinkled some olive oil on each sheet to keep the food from sticking. Then I added pieces of deer meat (beef stew meat works great too), fresh broccoli, sweet red pepper, onion and potato.
I seasoned everything with fresh parsley from my kitchen garden, salt/pepper, garlic pepper and a bit more olive oil.
I made sure everything was evenly coated with the seasonings; then I covered each pack with another piece of aluminum foil. I rolled the edges to prevent leakage and poked two fork holes in each pack.
This is a fast, easy and healthy meal that even picky eaters will enjoy. The best part? There are very few dishes to clean up afterward. And for those of us sticking to the clean-sink challenge, that is music to our ears.
Do you have any easy grill recipes? I’d love for you to share them.
