Three Letters: B-B-Q!
I have finally found some time to post on my blog (Yay!)
Last weekend was the first weekend in June, and my boyfriend/partner person, who is also our live-in chef, brought something home and sneakily set up a surprise in our backyard. It was a mini grill! The first thing out of my mouth was “Barbecue!”
I know, it must seem kind of strange for someone to start cheering about having the ability to eat barbecued food, but it was, literally, the first time in three years (besides festivals or restaurants…those are experiences, not meals ;P ) since I had had barbecued food!
Our “chef” out-did himself on the grill Saturday! He christened the grill by making a pork tenderloin. Yes, I know realize that we eat a lot of pork dishes, too, but this dish was FABULOUS! It was juicy and tender, but still had that smoky barbecue flavour that I had been dreaming about for what seemed like an eternity!
For our traditional Sunday dinner, my guy decided to dial it down a notch. He rolled up his imaginary sleeves, and made his amazing hamburgers on the grill! This was the meal I had been waiting for! His normal burgers are usually cooked in the oven. They are great, but to have these babies on the grill was something that (my) dreams were made of!
When I took a bite into the final product, it was game-over! It was tasty deliciousness! I scarfed down my burger so fast that I was sad it was gone, even though it was pretty filling. I reluctantly shared the last burger with my eldest, who didn’t seem too pleased to be sharing it with me, either.
Now that the weekend is just about upon us, my thoughts are floating towards the grill out back, and what my guy will come up for this weekend’s grilling sensations. Whatever they are, I am sure they will be delicious, and will be sure to share them with you!
Until my next post, Readers!
