Summer grilling is a fine way to beat the heat.  Here are photos of a recent dinner – grilled pork chops and fresh green beans from Queen’s Farm at the West Chester Growers Market.

The pork was marinated in my homemade BBQ sauce and a lil’ something extra, and the beans were done sort of the way my friend Betty Foo cooks them at Hu Nan Restaurant in Ardmore – stir fried with fresh garlic and crushed red pepper.

(And yes, another way to beat the heat is of course just to go to Hu Nan in Ardmore.  Trust me, it’s not like most Chinese restaurants – it is awesome.  BYOB.)
