Since the weather is unusually warm this fall, there is still plenty of opportunity to cook outdoors. This is a recipe I usually cook in the oven modified for the grill.
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. of Yukon potatoes
  • 1/4 cup total of chopped fresh mixed herbs: parsley, chives, rosemary, oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons squeezed lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
Materials:
  • Heavy aluminum foil
  • Cooking spray
  • Grill
  • Grill Mitt/Oven Mitt
  • Metal Turner
Directions:
1.  Have the grill hot and ready to go.
2.  Wash and cut potatoes with skin on into 1/2 inch slices.
3.  Coat potatoes with olive oil and add the rest of ingredients.
4.  Tear off 18 inches of aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.  Arrange the potato slices side by side only making one single layer on the foil leaving 1 inch around all edges.  Tear off another piece of foil and spray it with cooking spray laying that face down on the potato layer.  Crimp and fold the 2 pieces of foil together working inward to form a seal around the potatoes.  You may need to make another foil packet.
5.  Put foil packets close to coals but not directly over them.  Cover grill and cook 10 minutes. Rotate packets and keep over indirect heat for another 10 minutes with grill closed.  Move directly over the coals and cook another 5 minutes.
6.  Remove and cool 5 minutes before opening the packets.  Be careful of steam when opening the sealed packet.

While you enjoy dinner, take a peek at Starter Zone, the first book of my new YA/LitRPG series, The Revelation Chronicles.

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
