Monday long weekend to those who live in the US:)
Even though it’s a long weekend for most, I’m heading into the gym to work today. I have a couple clients, and I told the owner I’d watch the gym.
Saturday night Shane and I had plans of grilling out and heading to the dog park. Big night😉
This weekend was also the last weekend for home games for our town’s minor league baseball team. Just so happened that while working at the gym, I met one of the players from the opposing team to offered up two free box seat tickets for Shane and I! Instant (and cheap!) Saturday night plans!
Before heading to the game, it was grill time!
Snacks for pre-dinner + cocktails:
I’ll miss grilling out…
We’ve grilled out countless times this summer. At least once per week – that’s more than we ever have before!
Sourdough garlic bread, okra, veg burg w/ ‘cado + green tomato + pickle!
Okra beans. They’ll be the next new superfood, just you wait! haha
Around 7, we got out the bikes to ride to the game
Pump it up!
We grabbed a beer, and then our seats.
It was a pretty good game!
But we left early to get ice cream before it got too dark.
Unfortunately, September = too dark too early, so we didn’t beat the night sky which left us ffffrreeezing and not being able to see much on the way home.
But the fro yo was worth it! By the way, reason #42 why I want to move away from Illinois: instead of having fun places like “self serve frozen yogurt shops” we have ice cream shops where the cashiers give you the oogly eye if you ask for one flavor on top of another. Hence, the two cups above. When I asked if I could have a small bit of raspberry on top, she just shook her head slowly and said “no.” She was a joy.
I showed her!
How much did you grill out this summer? See above:D
What’s your favorite thing to grill out? I loooove making veggie packs (as evidenced on the blog) with potatoes, carrots, and onions~ yum!
Only one more day to enter my Thermos giveaway!
Have a happy Labor Day to my US readers!!!
