Nothing signals spring like the smell of barbecue cooking. Those regular trips to fill the propane tank are routine in the summer months. We use the bbq several times a week, grilling everything from whole fish to polenta and everything in between.
Today was our inaugural grill fest. A whole chicken cut up and simply marinated in olive oil, oregano, lemon juice and salt and pepper and grilled to a slight char with smokey flavour throughout. No sides and no condiments but a couple of lemon wedges.
We devoured this whole chicken like it was our last day on earth. Simple ingredients made this chicken taste fresh and delicious and the weather was a sure sign of spring on the horizon.
If this is what we have to look forward to for the next few months, it's going to be an exciting summer...
