Hey folks, this is the first official blog post I am making as a married woman. That’s right, I got myself hitched and I am officially Mrs. Robyn Medlin Lindars and Scott is Mr. “Grill Guy”. I will have a blog post about this but I wanted to let You All know. :)

This month is November, Thanksgiving time, for the “4 Ingredient Challenge” that I participate in with my other creative blogger friends. The ingredients for this month were very Holiday-esque which made it easy for me to make a “Meal On the Grill- Thanksgiving style”.

My meal on the grill concept is that I make the entire “Meal on the Grill” doing meat, veggie, bread and dessert all on the grill. This month the ingredients were: Protein- cornish game hens; Veggie- string beans; Starch- sweet potatoes or yams; fruit- cranberries.

In lieu of doing a huge recipe write up with ingredient list, I’m going to do a picture tutorial with descriptive captions. The ingredient list for this one is easy enough to make this work.

Here’s what I came up with!:

Rosemary Lemon Grilled Cornish Game Hens

Lemon Zest Green Beans

Sweet Potato Pie Steamer Packets

AND FOR DESSERT

Cranberry Orange Bread Pudding (this shiz-nit is the bomb!)

Make a sweet potato packet of including 3 sweet potatos, a drizzle of fig balsalmic, 1/2 cup brown sugar and half a stick of butter. Grill for at least 40 minutes on indirect heat.

Grilling a game hen then throwing some green beans on the grill is the perfect way to start of Thanksgiving.
