What's on the Grill #60

In a somewhat traditional Irish way, for a guy that is mostly German with a little bit of Welsh (I think), I decided upon Colcannon with a grilled pork chop covered in a honey balsamic vinaigrette. I love Colcannon, which is a traditional Irish potato dish made with kale or cabbage. Mine, taken from a Williams-Sonoma book, was embellished with leek, shallots, kale and cabbage. I absolutely love it...if you haven't had it before, try it.

Jayme says, it looks REAL good. I will be making that.

mom obviously hasn't seen this yet. we aren't welsh. when grandma heard her say that once, she corrected her very sharply and quickly (which is true anderson/martin fashion). the only small countries our people hail from are england and luxembourg.

Jayme - You will like it. I had it again today for lunch AND dinner.

Anne - No, Mom saw it, she just decided to send me an email instead of posting about it here. Nothing like throwing your brother under the bus.

Also, I am glad to know everyone else in the family is clear on our ancestral roots besides me. The last I heard is that we were a little Welsh and a little German. Frankly, after watching Daffyd on Little Britain, I don't want any Welsh in me!
