Blue Cheese and Honey Nectarines

  The colder weather is starting to creep in and before we know it, it will be time to put the grill away.  Before that happens, lets get a few more meals cooked over the coals.  Today’s recipe is a side to go along with your ribs and steaks.
3 nectarines, halved and pitted
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
Fresh thyme for garnish
  When preparing your grill, spread your heated coals over one half of the grill, leaving the other half of the grate empty.  Cook your meat over the charcoal and use the empty area for your nectarines.
  Cut your nectarines in half, remove the pit and fill the cavity with blue cheese.  Drizzle with honey and season with pepper.  Place them on the cooler side of the grill and allow the cheese to melt and the exterior to become slightly charred.  Remove from the grill and garnish with thyme leaves.
  There is little in this world that says “summer” to me more than grilled food, and fruit just gets such a fabulous flavor over the coals.  Adding cheese?  Well you know I’m on board there.
  G didn’t want to try his.  G doesn’t want to try anything lately, so that’s not a surprise.  I didn’t really mind, it meant more for me!  Definitely squeeze this in to these last few days before the cold rolls in.  There will be plenty of time for hearty stews and pumpkin soon, savor these last few days of warmth!
