Tag Archives: Grilling


In honor of finally having nice weather, we grilled our ENTIRE dinner last night – chicken, potatoes, asparagus, and DESSERT!  Yes, grilled dessert!!!

Dinner was grilled chicken cordon blue – Ryan’s invention (much better than his last . . . fritos and peanut butter) – with potatoes and asparagus.  Dessert was strawberry peach cobbler.  It was fantastic.  I didn’t keep track of the recipe, but I will have to make it again soon so I can write the recipe down.

Today we are trying pulled pork on the grill, and I am trying to find a way to make buns for the pulled pork on the grill instead of inside in the oven.  Thoughts????

Also, not that long ago I posted about the magical power of pancakes.  In case you want additional proof of the mind control powers of pancakes, Ryan has spent the last 2+ hours doing yard work non-stop.  Murphy has spent the last 2+ hours sleeping non-stop.  Apparently pancakes only have a brainwashing effect on husbands, not dogs.

The Great Chili Adventure – Chili Dogs and Burgers

It is National Chili Month and the Chili List is all set.  So what does that mean . . . time to start cooking.

Today we tailgated for the Badger Game.  The Badgers pulled out a win, the boys cooked, the food was good, and the company was great.  What more could a girl ask for.

The boys cooking . . . Yes, I know believe that miracles can and do happen (small miracles, but miracles nonetheless)

Oh, and along with chili season, often comes chilly weather.  It was definitely chilly today, so we had to get out Murphy’s hoodie:

Mommmmm, I hate the flash!

Check back tomorrow for recipes and the menu for tomorrow’s game!
