If you’ve been reading spabettie since at least last summer, you know we love to grill. Jason always says he would grill year round – if we had a covered porch, he would be out there in the snow.
Right now, the weather is perfect for grilling! We have been enjoying temps in the 70′s and 80′s, which are to continue through this weekend. Not even completely settled in our new house, the grill is set up and this was the first recipe I grilled!
The grilled part of this recipe is my new favorite snack - a date stuffed with rosemary. Grilled. Sticky charred sweetness infused with fresh rosemary is simple and complex all at once. We ate plenty of these as is, warm straight off the grill. I saved enough for these bars, adding that grilled flavor to a sweet and savory treat.
I have entered this recipe into the Dole California Cook Off, for a chance to travel to California and compete at The Grove. There is a contest to submit a recipe for a possible $10,000 prize, with two runners up prizes of $1000! There is also a sweepstakes to enter – a chance to travel to LA and judge the contest!
I’ll be here, sitting in the sunshine, stuffing rosemary into dates. See my recipe here.
