Grillin' out in the summertime.

Little sister here. I’ve been busy with work and training and keeping track of kiddies, but not too busy to eat a tasty meal every now and then. Here are some pictures from our most recent grillstravaganza, which left our bellies full of portobello mushroom, grape tomatoes, shrimp, pineapple, zucchini, italian sausage, and homegrown asparagus. New aspiration: some time in the future, a summer of grill-only cooking (griddles allowed, of course). It might even be more energy efficient than regular stovetop cooking. Thoughts, anyone?

We learned our lesson last time when a precariously placed package of precious italian pork sausage (fist pump for alliteration!) toppled to the ground.

Thank goodness for summertime! Happy grilling to all.
