Please include American measurements in your recipes,(cup, teaspoon,etc.) Love your recipes but cannot convert them.

Here are tips I used at work for people who had difficulty swallowing: sit upright, tip head slightly forward, small bites, chew well, avoid distractions so can concentrate on what doing, for example, wait until swallowing finished to speak to her, do not rush—I hope this helps

Years ago we made foil packets to use on a cookout. I know they had hamburger and oniion in them. What else do they have and do you put seasoning in the packet before you cook them?
Esther in Chicago

When grilling vegetables do you grill them on top of the grill or do you use pan to grill them on to keep them from falling between the grids. Thank you for any help on grilling vegetables.
