A note about serious food allergies

There's nothing like the grill; it portends summer and all the joy that entails, yes, but it's also the flavors. The grill imparts a smoky, charred oomph to whatever touches its grate. It can't be replicated or reproduced. Here, the magic is augmented by the smoldering sweet tang of the jerk sauce, brushed on the cooked skewers. The zucchini and bell pepper are rubbed with delightful mojito-lime oil, then also sacrificed to the grill gods, resulting in pure delight. As long as the summer sun remains in the sky, we'll keep the grill ready.
