Can you think of anything you’d rather do on a summery Friday night than grill up some tasty food while sipping on a cocktail with someone you love?
Neither can I.
To be honest, the weather wasn’t super summery, but was still pleasant.
And if I’m being totally honest, I was wearing pj pants & a hoodie while this grilling & sipping was going on.
But the company was great and the food was even better.
Raindrops started falling just as we put the food on the grill.
I was catching up on my blog reading & turned my glass of wine into a version of Chicago Fizz, inspired by IGE.
I turned my corn (boiled, therefore not shown on the gril) & asparagus into a little salad with tomatoes. Corn cut off the cob, chopped tomatoes & asparagus, a drizzle of EVOO & a few shakes of salt & pepper. Simple perfection.
Perhaps my favorite part of summer grilling is that it takes little to no effort to make a seriously delicious dish. Minimal seasoning, minimal preparation. That is my kind of relaxing weekend meal.
I foresee a lot more nights like this in my future.
Happy weekend, friends. Have fun, be safe, & enjoy your extra day off if you get one.
