I did some grilling this weekend. Well, I’ve been doing a lot of grilling this week – mostly salmon, but on Friday I hosted a dinner party and grilled some chicken from Trader Joe’s. And my little electric grill? Amazing.
I’m still working on getting the grill marks, but this meal (I think it was on Tuesday) was delicious. Grilled salmon and grilled asparagus… how could that be wrong? Oh! And iced tea! I made that myself. Oh so summery.
I figured it was apropos to blog about grilling, since it is Labor Day, the unofficial last weekend of summer. I also had homemade frozen yogurt for breakfast. It just felt right. It is a holiday, after all. I think I’ll spend today doing some residual grocery shopping – I went to Target for much of my weekly food supply on Saturday, then walked to Uwajimaya for the remainder yesterday – but I went into cleaning-out-the-cabinet-by-baking-sweets mode last night, so now I need more lemon juice (I took my first shot at baking lemon bars). I also baked some cookies. Don’t worry, I won’t be eating either of these concoctions. I will be donating them to a very special cause, the My Coworkers Need Snack Food Fund.
It’s almost 10:30 am. Guess I should get dressed and go walk around in the sun while we still have it!
