So we’ve hit our third 90+ degree weekend in a row, and that was enough to make me realize that it was time to fire up the grill. You may recall that last year I failed to do so at all. Not a once. #Summerfail.
Like the first day back at the gym, the first time on the grill is the hardest. It just seems like SO MUCH WORK (though it isn’t at all), it gets easier after that initial go, and I’m hoping that the enthusiasm with which I start my grilling season continues at least until we chill for Labor Day.
Side note: bacon on the grill? Disappointing. I was just being lazy, but I’ll fire up the oven as usual next time.
With July 4th coming this weekend, and all us perfecting the art of the lazy summer, about fifty bloggers and I teamed up to bring you #CookoutWeek – and entire week filled with delicious summer recipes perfect for your next cookout. Plus (PLUS!), we’re all throwing a fun giveaway, courtesy of some awesome sponsors.
