These grills!!!

Our amazingly supportive, wonderful, loving and knowledgeable bosses and owners of Samuel Cole Salon, Jack and Joelle Ray, invited these meatballs over for a grilling tutorial!!! They have definitely been amazing cheerleaders during our journey and this was just another fun night together! I brought my new signature paleo dessert…

mix 1/4 cup almond flour 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp cinnamon together and add 1/4 cup softened coconut oil, 1 egg, 1tsp vanilla and whisk together. Press into a pie dish with fingers and bake for 15 minutes on 350. Let cool completely. Spread a layer of unsweetened coconut milk yogurt over pie crust and slice one banana layering over yogurt. Then add another thicker layer of yogurt and place sliced strawberries and blueberries to top.

And Jenny brought mocktails…

Made from Trader Joe’s sparkling water and fresh fruit!!!

Jenny and I both are very interested in grilling but were extremely intimidated by the whole idea of it! Jack and Joelle to the rescue!!!

We learned a lot!!! And you’ll never guess what you guys…it was soooooo fun!!! So what’s on the menu you ask…grilled flank steak, lamp chop pops, green beans, sweet potatoes and spicy asparagus! Here are some  recipes:
Spicy asparagus…place a bunch of asparagus on a foil lined baking sheet…drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt and red pepper flakes. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes.

image

Garnett roasted sweet potatoes…toss in coconut oil and kosher salt on an unloved baking sheet at 350 for 30 minutes.

image image

Yummy green beans… in a pot over medium heat steam green beans with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper for fifteen minutes…

image

Lamp chop pops…marinate for at least an hour up to three hours  in rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt and olive oil…before grilling take out of fridge and let come to room temperature. Grill for three minutes per side!

image

Grilled flank steak…marinate steak in coconut aminos, honey, garlic salt and pepper for at least one hour but up to three hours. Grill for six minutes per side!!!!

image

This was our first time….grilling!!! Enjoy the show! First we turned the grill on and let it heat up for fifteen minutes…then it was time to put the steak on..

image image

And we timed it just right…

image

No joking around guys…this is serious business…

image image image image

As if…we are jackasses!
Now that our meat has cooked for six minutes on both sides we let it rest under aluminum foil for fifteen minutes while we cook the chops! But first you have to clean the grill.

image

Now on to the chops…they got really firey and a little scary!

image image image image

But after three minutes per side these yummy little treats were done!

image image image

Mission accomplished and time to carve the steak!!!

image image image image

And dig in…

image image

Look at these yummy, healthy plates…

image image

Dinner time…

It was disgusting…just kidding…it was amazing! Literally only the bones were left!
