It can be easy to find yourself in a bit of a food rut. You rotate through the same handful of time-tested recipes on a regular basis and suddenly you find that nothing sounds particularly good. You’re tired of all of the fast food options in your city–because let’s face it, they all get pretty old pretty quickly.

So is there anything you can do to reinvigorate your dinners with a little spark? Well, with Mighty Flame propane, there is–quite literally, in fact! If you’ve been following along with our blogs for any amount of time, you will probably have noticed that we’re passionate about providing our readers with cooking tips and tricks as well as our favorite recipes that help to take things up a notch.

Wondering what drives us to create new recipes on a regular basis? Fortunately for you, we have a few tips that we would be happy to share with you. Here’s what we think you should do:

Buy a Propane Tank

First and foremost, if you’re not taking advantage of your grill, now is the time to start. The person who swears by using their oven to cook dinner on a regular basis will love a change of pace and the one who thinks that he or she is hopeless when it comes to cooking will discover that grilling is quite different. When you buy a propane tank and a gas grill, you’re unlocking a whole new world of culinary possibilities.

You’ll suddenly find that whereas you may have previously never been a fan of making chicken, it’s easier than ever. Didn’t like burgers in the skillet? Grilling them provides a whole new level of flavor. And don’t even get us started on steaks. The best steaks of your life will be cooked on a grill using nothing but the steak of your choice, salt, and pepper. That’s all there is to it. Get a propane tank now and thank us later!

Try Something New

The best way to get yourself out of a food rut is to try something new. You don’t have to go overboard or anything. Instead, spend a bit of time finding a new recipe that you think you might enjoy and give it a shot! You’ll be surprised to find that sometimes all it takes is getting out of the regular routine to realize that you do in fact love chicken and that the only reason it’s dry is because of your old recipe.

Bonus points, of course, if you try something on the grill. For example, why not try your hand at smoking some ribs? “How am I going to do that with a gas grill?” you think. Well, friends and neighbors, there are a handful of devices you can use to smoke some awesome ribs using the grill you already have. It doesn’t get much better than that! Whatever you try, focus on doing something that is a little bit outside of your comfort zone. Trust us when we say that you’ll thank us.

Sit and Savor

Lastly, the best way to make the most of your dinners is to simply focus on actually enjoying it. All too often we get into the habit of chowing down our food without really thinking about it. Sure, you might realize that what you’re eating tastes good, but when is the last time that you actually took the time to savor your food? Rather than pulling up a tv tray and plowing through a few episodes of Breaking Bad while you eat, focus on the sheer joy that good food brings.

It’s even better if you take your meal outside to enjoy your neighborhood. Or invite a few friends over and just spend some time catching up. Taking the time to really appreciate and be thankful for the food that you’re eating and the life that you have can often be all you need to enjoy a dinner. It really is as simple as that. Food is meant to be enjoyed and taking the time to sit down and really savor your meal might be just what is needed to make your next dinner the best it can be.

Whatever you choose, we hope that you will enjoy it. Until next time!
