Grilled Apricot Parfait

Father’s Day is around the corner, and I can bet that many of you are going to be spending it doing some sort of father’s day grill, ’cause that’s what Dads do, am i right? (By the way, Sears is having a father’s day give away which includes a new grill and tickets to your baseball game of choice, which you can enter to win on facebook.)

Not to pull the whole “women can’t do everything men can..” thing, but grilling is sometimes overwhelming for girls. I say this only because I am one of these women. I get stressed out about bringing everything outside, and temperatures and grill tools. It’s a whole new ball game out there. Not to mention, it really messes up my hair. You know how I feel about this.

So in order to avoid being overwhelmed, I stick to the basics. That’s right, I keep is simple, stupid. Because the last thing in the world I want to do when I am hosting a bbq is stress out. The best way to do this is by grilling something easy.

Today I have a recipe for you that is so simple, even I can hack it on the grill. My best advice is to grill fruit. It is extremely fast and easy, and for some reason, people are always super impressed with grilled fruit. Like “OooH! She’s thinking outside of the box.”

Grill the apricots cut side down for 1 minute. Rotate to make hash marks, and cook for 1 more minute. Mix the greek yogurt and honey. Serve the apricots cut side up, with the yogurt honey mixture in the pit, top with granola and freshly grated nutmeg.

These are just a few of my tips for grilling while also being the host. I would love if you would share your tips with me! One of my lucky readers who answers below will win a $25 Sears Gift Card!
