I love grilling. Whether we're talking big Sunday cookouts or mid-week dinners, I don't discriminate. I prefer to keep the indoor oven and stove off during the warmer months, and like to make most of our family meals on the barbie. Still, we're a busy gang--even during the so-called "laid-back" summertime--so I try to minimize effort and mess; that's why I'm a big fan of foil-packet meals. Throw a protein and some veggies in aluminum foil, put them on the grill, and you have yourself a contained meal in minutes. No clean-up required!
