lazy sunday love

yesterday was the perfect sunday! it was so nice to spend the weekend in madison and having a perfect saturday led to a perfect sunday.

on yesterday’s agenda:

blog

laundry

meal plan

harry potter 7 part 2

catch up on my google reader

stay inside to avoid the 100*+ heat index outside

grill for dinner

and that’s about it!

perfect.

oh, what’s that? you want to know more about that last one? grill for dinner?

that was made possible by our awesome wedding gift from my mom and step-dad!

(my mom brought it for us on friday when she came to visit!!)

they got us a weber grill with all kinds of grilling accessories!

thanks, mom & jamie! 🙂 we love it!

i told brad that this is his wedding present since a lot of our other gifts have been kitchen-related items that are more my thing!

we were so excited to break in the grill, that we decided to grill despite the crazy insane heat index yesterday.

[from ~1:30pm yesterday]

burgers and vegetable kabobs were on the menu.

brad was grill master.

and capone was grill puppy.

he loved hanging out outside by the porch while we grilled!

while brad got the grill ready, liz and i put the kabobs together.

sadly, we didn’t do a very good job of making everything uniform sizes, so we ended up taking the veggies off the kabobs and letting them sit on the grill.

look at those grill marks! so pretty. we just pulled them off as they got done. after the veggies were mostly done, brad put the burgers on the grill.

look at all that smoke!

i also made some fries – we tried out some trader joe’s potato fries that we grabbed on saturday!

i had a bit of everything on my plate and ate it all!

it was a great dinner. i can’t wait to use our grill again!

*****

what’s your favorite thing to grill?

i love grilling corn on the cob!
