Grilled Balsamic Mushrooms with Polenta

Image
Grilled Balsamic Mushrooms with Polenta with balsamic vinegar, thyme, and Parmesan cheese make the most delicious vegetarian main dish or side.The first thing that comes to mind when I think about vegetarian grilling is portobello mushrooms. With their meaty texture and earthy flavor, they are one of my favorite things to put on the grill. However since mushrooms don't really make for a complete dinner, I always find myself spending too much time in the kitchen cooking up the rest of the meal. That all changes with this dish. And polenta on the grill - next level good.To get things started, let's talk about the mushrooms. Before grilling them, it's best to add as much flavor as you can. I like to do this with a quick marinade of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes.

Use Essential Oil Insect Repellent For House And Garden

By Angela Morris

Bug sprays are big business today. People like to go outside, sit around the pool or the campfire, work in the garden, and enjoy their animals without pesky insects crashing the party. However, many petroleum-based and other chemical-infused products have side effects to people and the environment. Those who want less pollution for themselves, their households, and their planet can use essential oil insect repellent instead.

At first, chemical pesticides were hailed as miracle tools in the fight against hunger and disease. DDT almost wiped out bedbugs, saved the apple trees from the coddling moth, and destroyed malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Other poisons were developed for pests and widely used.
