I have to admit, with this recent heat wave, I soooo haven't felt like cooking. But can you blame me? Once that oven turns on, our tiny little apartment becomes a sauna! So you know I'm trying to avoid that sensation like the plague.
So it's times like these when I'm beyond thankful that Cole and I made the investment in a grill for our little patio (even though Cole hated me and it at the time when he spent several hours trying to assemble the damn thing!) The grill truly has been a lifesaver. For hot nights when we don't feel like firing up the oven, and just for nights when we want some tasty grilled flavor, the grill is everything!
I'm constantly trying to think of new things to throw on the barbie to shake up a typical weeknight and also keep us from spending too much time prepping and cooking. The latest installment of this type of meal was inspired by one of my favorite sandwiches: a French-Vietnamese Banh Mi!
