The good news is that I had tremendous success grilling clams in beer on my parents’ gas grill this weekend. The bad news is I forgot my camera and have zero photo evidence to show for it. So how to grill clams on a gas grill will be a story for another day, I guess. Perhaps next week. They were really good.
I’ve been craving some unusual things lately, but the combination that surprised me the most was a light black bean and corn dish. Cold. These just aren’t ingredients I mix together under ordinary circumstances. And when I do, they are usually mixed up hot in a Southwest flavored dish. Not so with this. Instead it’s a salad with a light dressing. The result was tasty – and my mother enjoyed it a lot too so it’s not just for pregnant folk.
