Now that the weather is getting warmer it means barbecue season has arrived!
I have serious MAD LOVE for BBQ season!! It’s not just because of the tasty eats, but also because it cuts my cooking time in half. My husband tackles the grilling while I whip up a salad and we eat in no time flat. Plus it feels like we eat healthier too with the plethora of fruits and veggies that accompany whatever is coming off the barbecue.
Personally, I don’t enjoy the actual barbecuing part and I’m thankful that my husband takes it on. However, I do like to play with new recipes to prepare on the grill and I’m so excited to tell you about my latest discovery. It’s super delicious and perfect for Father’s Day or your next BBQ party.
