Time to Heat Up the Grill!

Is it just us, or does food just taste a little bit better when it’s made on a grill on a nice summer’s day? At Sherwood Oaks, we love a good hamburger or hot dog straight from the grill, especially when it’s prepared surrounded by friends, family, and laughter.

Each Sherwood Oaks resident is able to have a grill on their patio, but our common area, the Summer House, has grills and an open area for picnic activities.

Here are 10 delicious looking recipes that we have stumbled upon for you to grill up this spring and summer!


1. Pesto Grilled Shrimp

Seafood lovers looking to add some flavor to the classic taste of shrimp will love the bold flavor of pesto!
