I love long weekends. Mostly because I tend to grill more often than usual. I grill almost every day. Yet for some reason on long weekends I have the urge to grill ALL the things.
Luckily I just got a new grill. It’s a beauty. We had to retire one of my old ones. It was so rusted it and the bottom of it was pretty much gone. It was a good grill, and served me well.
However it was time for it to retire after years of hard work. So we said out goodbyes to Old Faithful and sent it on its way. It will be missed. It was my favourite grill.
Or it WAS my favourite grill. Apparently I’m fickle because I have a new favourite now. My new grill came home to stay this week. Hubs picked it up, put it together, then backed away slowly.
He’s not allowed to actually grill on any of my grills. Don’t freak out. He’s totally cool with this arrangement. Years of him burning everything on the grill showed us he’s not meant to grill.
We revoked his grill master rights and retired his apron. Okay, he never really had an apron. Only because we were worried he would light it on fire when he cooked.
I took over the grilling duties many moons ago. It was one too many times of seeing flames shooting out from my grill while he played in the pool with the kids. So I took over the grill.
We’ve never looked back since that day. I fell in love with grilling, and hubs was happy to just chill in the yard and hang with the hooligans. It’s an arrangement that has worked out well.
He’s super awesome at putting them together though. He always makes sure it’s all hooked up correctly so I don’t blow up the grill. I’m accident prone so we play to our strengths.
Happy 4th of July!
