 h1. Dear readers,

 As Memorial Day signals that it's once again OK to wear white shoes, it also ushers in the opening of grilling season. 

 (At our house, we got a jump start with chicken and asparagus on the grill last night, which was mostly a success — although let me take this opportunity to ask: How does one remove the grit from unusually sandy spears?)

 As summer gets underway, we're looking forward to more dinners cooked over a flame — including one of our favorites, Kathleen Bauer's paella. Here are a handful of links that might further inspire your own grilling:

  The universal grill: Ellen Jackson grills everything from mussels to strawberries to salad.
  Bob Blumer and Elizabeth Karmel's Pizza on the Grill tells you all you need to know on that subject — whether you're using a gas or a charcoal grill.
  Andy Schloss and Dave Joachim discuss the ins and outs of grilling veg and other sides in this excerpt from their classic book Mastering the Grill.
  Speaking of Andy and Dave, they'll join Kim O'Donnel tomorrow, Thursday, May 26, for a [/columns/tabletalk/tabletalkmay26 "Table Talk chat about grilling."] Check it out at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT) — and sign up now for an email reminder.
  You can't go wrong with Mark Bittman's no-nonsense hamburger — our go-to burger recipe. 
  Finally, keep it clean: go as green as you can with your grill. 

 Here's to a tasty, sun-kissed holiday weekend.
