Weekend Recap & Potatoes on the Grill

I didn’t have a chance to post yesterday because I was busy busy trying to paint our deck, and receive a shipment for work. When we bought our house the previous owners painted the deck a bright orange, so it was  always on our list of things to do.  We painted it a medium brown color, using Chocolate from Behr’s Deck Over collection.  It was really fun to paint, although I am not completely finished yet.  We bought 2 buckets of paint and ran out already, so we will need to go get some more!


We also got together with some of our friends this weekend and had some delicious meals!  One of days we grilled and made potatoes on the grill.  I had actually seen this idea on Pinterest before and last year our neighbors made them for us, so we figured we would try.

It is the easiest recipe ever.

You will need:

  • However many whole potatoes you would like, we made 8 and I used Yukon Gold, but you could use whatever type you prefer…we are going to try it next time with Sweet Potatoes
  • 3 slivers of butter per potato, we needed 24 slivers for ours
  • 12 slices of onion per potato
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  1. Wash and dry the potatoes. Then cut three slices into them almost all the way through.
  2. Stuff each slice with a sliver of butter and 3-4 slices of onion.
  3. Place in foil and sprinkle on garlic salt and a little pepper.  I have this garlic salt grinder that has parsley in it, as well from Trader Joes, so that is what I used.
  4. Wrap the foil up tightly with the opening on the top.  Grill the potatoes on indirect heat for about 45 mins.  You can lightly squeeze the foil to see if they are soft.

We topped the potatoes with some sour cream, and they were delicious!  Very easy side dish for a grilling night!

Thanks for reading and have a fun day 🙂
