Happy almost Friday! 

Today we’re talking grilling! Because we only eat grilled food from June to August.

I even grill cocktails

I’m pretty serious about grilling

You guys remember how last summer I was obsessed with jalapeños? Like, I would go buy fast food nachos, bring them home, and then pile them with jalapeños?

It’s happening again. We ordered pizza two nights ago and I covered mine in peppers. I am obsessed. 

And good news! I planted a jalapeño plant this year and the first one should be ready to pick within a couple days! #BESTDAYEVER

Everyone tells me that jalapeño plants go nuts so once that happens, I’ll be making these Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers all the time. They are SO good. 

The jalapeños are stuffed with a cream cheese and cheddar mixture and then they’re wrapped in bacon and grilled until softened and delicious.

Have you ever grilled jalapeño poppers? They will change your life! My husband and I practically fought over the last one. 

And now: the best giveaway ever! 

Father’s Day is coming up soon and the perfect gift for the man in your life is a grill. Not so funny story: our grill was my husband’s Father’s Day present 4 years ago, right after we got to Colorado. I’m telling, perfect Father’s Day gift. 

The giveaway today is for a SABER Cast 500 Grill. It’s probably the coolest grill I’ve ever seen. 

The cool thing about SABER grills is that they have an infrared cooking system that uses 30% less gas than traditional gas grills, they have a wide temperature range for slow roasting or searing, and a rapid pre-heat cycle of 0 to 700 degrees in less than 10 minutes! The cooking surfaces are made of highly durable commercial grade 304 stainless steel that generate even heat, which means no more hot or cold spots!
