Cookin’ On The Rooftop: Grilling Fruit & Excelsior Fireworks Preview


6:44. LIVE ON THE WCCO ROOFTOP STUDIO. IT FEELS PRETTY GOOD OUT HERE. YOU CAN TELL IT IS A GORGEOUS SUMMER DAY. I WISH WE HAD MORE MUSIC BECAUSE WE START DANCING. I THINK PEOPLE ARE THINKING YOU ARE LOVING LIFE. HEADING TO THE LAKE, CERTAINLY PART OF THE FOURTH OF JULY TRADITION. GRILLING. WE DID SOME MELON INFUSIONED DRINKS. A LITTLE EARLIER. BUT NOW WE HAVE THE GRILL READY, JAMIE. WE DO HAVE LAURA FROM EXCELSIOR AND SUE FROM KOWALSKIS AND YOU GUYS ARE KIND OF COMING TOGETHER. AND IN A PARTNERSHIP. YOU WILL BE OUT IN EXCELSIOR. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE BOTH OF YOU HERE THIS MORNING. BUT TELL US WHAT IS ON THE GRILL. BECAUSE THIS LOOKS SO FRESH AND FANTASTIC, SUE. WHEN WE THINK OF DOING BURGERS AN ALL OF THAT, WHICH IS WONDERFUL BUT USE A LITTLE PORTION OF YOUR GRILL TO DO SOME FRUITS AND WITHIN FIVE MINUTES, YOU CAN GRILL JUST ABOUT ANY FRUIT. AND ALMOST ANY FRUIT WILL WORK. ESPECIALLY THE FIRMER ONES LIKE PINEAPPLE AND STONE FRUIT. AND IT CARMELIZES AND INTENSIFIES THE SWEETNESS. I USE PINEAPPLE AS A DESERT BECAUSE OF CARAMEL DELICIOUSNESS AND NEVER THOUGHT OF PEACHES OR NECTARINES. SALAD. AN ANGEL FOOD CAKE AND PROBABLY THE ALL TIME FAVORITE IS TO GRILL A BANANA. I HAVE NEVER GRILLED A BANANA. I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT. AND YOU SLICE IT DOWN THE MIDDLE IN THE CURVED END AND PUT IT ON THE GRILL, FIVE MINUTES AND A VERY ATTRACTIVE DARK BROWN HUGH. AND SCOOP OUT THE MIDDLE AND INSTEAD OF A MARSHMALLOW ON THE SMORES, USE THE BANANA. AND KOWALSKIS IS OPENING UP IN EXCELSIOR AND I KNOW YOU ARE EXCITED TO HAVE A BIG OLD GROCERY STORE IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA AND FOURTH OF JULY IN EXCELSIOR, I DON’T THINK IT GETS ANY BETTER THAN THAT. WE HAVE BEEN THROWING THE PARTY SINCE 1888 ON LAKE MINNETONKA. IS THAT ALL? I HAVE BEEN THROWING THE PARTY SINCE THEN. AND REMARKABLY WELL PRESERVED. HAVE YOU FIREWORKS DOWNTOWN. WE START WITH THE FIRECRACKER RACES. 38th YEAR. A ONE MILE, 5 CONFIRM, AND 10K AND END WITH A BANG WITH A FREE FIREWORKS SHOW OFF OF LAKE MIN TONKA. ONE OF THE BEST FIREWORKS SHOW AND AT THE LAKE AND NOT BEING ABLE TO GET ALL THE WAY TO THE CABIN, IT IS A GREAT WAY TO DRINK IT ALL IN. I GOT LOST ONCE OFF OF LAKE MINNETONKA AND WHERE AM I? BEFORE OR AFTER A CELL PHONE GPS? THIS WAS BEFORE. VERY OLD. AND NOW, NO ONE GETS LOST NOW. RIGHT? YES, IT IS A REALLY FUNE FUN DAY. A RESORT TIME. AND IT IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO SPEND YOUR FOURTH OF JULY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COMING IN. I HOPE PEOPLE ENJOY THE GRILL AND GET OUT TO EXCELSIOR AND KATE RADDITZ SINGING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM OUT THERE. A BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND SHE HAS DONE THAT SEVERAL TIMES. A HOMETOWN GIRL. ONE OF OURS. AND WE ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE HER BACK.
