Happy weekend! I feel like having a little fun with some recipes that double as craft projects.
Okay, maybe these instructions from Better Homes and Gardens Barbecues and Picnics book (1963) aren't exactly a recipe, but the project can be used to make a recipe:
Flowerpot grills! Just line pots with foil, gravel, and more foil, light a few briquets, and cook your kabobs right on top. It's so cute and easy that I almost wish that I had non-plastic flowerpots, and that I could be trusted with an open flame.
I still might be able to pull off the pineapple solar system in the background, or the pot bursting with green onions, crinkle-cut carrots, and olives... though the illusion that one is ripping crudites right out of the dirt might make this less-popular side just that much more likely to be leftover.
Now here is a craft project I don't want you to make on the grill. Imagine picking up a charred corn husk, pulling it back with the expectation of sweet, tender summer corn and finding...
A dead fish. A whole dead fish, at that! I'm pretty sure I'd just drop the sucker right on the patio out of surprise... and then I'd feel bad yet again for being a socially awkward person.
Here's the recipe, but remember...
...friends don't serve friends dead fish in corn husks. If you have to try these, serve them only to your enemies.
