Beyond Books: Grilled Potatoes

I'm going "Beyond Books" again today to share a delicious recipe that we enjoyed on the weekend. Living in the south, we grill a lot, so we're always looking for new ideas. A few years ago, a friend shared a recipe for grilled potatoes and we have been making them ever since!


Grilled Potatoes

The first thing you need is a small cast iron skillet that can go on the grill, or a small aluminum grilling pan, along with some aluminum foil to cover it. (*affiliate links)

Ingredients
4 potatoes (or enough to fill the pan)
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 green pepper
6 oz Italian dressing (I use Wish-Bone Robusto Italian because it has a lot of flavor)

Instructions
1. Bring grill up to medium temperature.
2. Cut all of the vegetables into small pieces.
3. Add to pan and pour in the dressing.
4. Mix everything together well.
5. Cover with foil.
6. Place on grill and cook for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
7. Stab potato with fork to check for doneness.
8. Keep grilling and stirring once potatoes are soft to add a little crunch to the edges.
6. Goes great with grilled steak, chicken or pork chops.

  1. Sounds delicious! I never thought of using the cast iron skillet on the grill. I usually roast potatoes in the oven (cut-up, I mean, not whole), but this sounds like a nice variation.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
