The best way to convince the boy to do the cooking....

Buy a grill! Yep this weekend we were inspired the 70 degree weather we had last Friday to buy a new grill for the house. When we lived in the condo we weren't allowed to have a grill on the balcony and we both couldn't wait to have one for the townhouse and start inviting friends over in the summer for cookouts on the deck overlooking the water.

We went to Lowe's and found what Kristian felt would be the perfect grill for our deck. He wanted charcoal instead of gas and since he's the one that will be doing all the grilling I left that decision up to him.

So far we've used it twice already, on Sunday night for steaks. And then last night for hamburgers. I must say that the food does seem to taste better. Now we can't wait to go to Costco to stock up on different meats and start inviting friends over.

Hamburgers, a beer and an amazing view. Doesn't get much better.

Awesome! I can't wait until we're in a place where we can have a grill, too. Let's hope there's more of that great weather on the way very soon!

Damn that looks good. We also had hamburgers & steaks this weekend. But I do all the grilling. D can't grill to save his life.

we love our grill and use it continuously in the summer! we grill chicken, salmon, and pork chops all summer long. If there is a Sam's Club near you, you should check out their pork chops and rib eyes. They are AMAZING... We buy tons of them and then stick them in our deep freeze and keep them for whenever :)

I love summer for that reason. Less cooking makes me happy :)

We didn't have a deck to put our grill on last year and now we do, I can't WAIT to get that thing fired up!

Josh is a grilling FREAK! Unfortunately, we can't because we live in a high-rise apartment. But I know once we buy a house, a grill will be #1 on the "must-have" list. That burger looks delish!
