Best of the Summer Grill Recipes!


Tomorrow is August 1.


How did this happen?

I’m actually really torn on how I feel about it. Like, I need my kids to go back to school. I haven’t had my hair highlighted since May because I’m too cheap to pay for a babysitter 90% of the time and I’m getting real sick of hearing “Can we have a snack?” every 15 minutes.

Real sick of it, y’all.

But I really love summer and the heat and the s’mores and grilling and the beaches. And also? This year is going by really fast and it’d be nice if it slowed down just a little bit.

So yeah, I’m torn.

Anyway, my blogging friends and I made a list of all our favorite grilling recipes. There’s lot of meat plus a couple desserts and I contributed a cocktail.

Weekly Family Menu Plan - featuring 5 weeknight dinner recipes, a weekend breakfast, and a delicious dessert!

Happy weekend, guys!

I hope you have something fun planned! I spent yesterday away from work so I’ve got a lot to catch up on. Plus, Nicole and I have an exciting project coming up in the next couple weeks so we’re both working out butts off to get that done.

Anyway, I went over to Temple yesterday and had the most amazing Southern Style Poutine. I may have dreamt about it last night. What’s the best thing you ate this week?

So, menu plan!

This week’s looks delicious as it always does! Lots of summery recipes!

Don’t forget to print the grocery list before you head to the store!

Happy almost Friday, guys!

I’ve got the urge to get out of town this weekend but I have too many dogs and too many kids to just pick up and leave. So I’m probably going to settle for lying in a beach chair in my backyard and watching all of season 5 of New Girl.

Aaaaaand I bought a new grill this week so I’ll probably grill every meal. I’m pretty excited about that.

Food Truck Frenzy - Temple, TX. Each month local food trucks gather in downtown Temple for Food Truck Frenzy! These are my favorites from July!

Happy Wednesday, y’all!

Thought I’d share a little something different today.

There’s a food truck event on the 4th Saturday of every month over in Temple, which is just a quick 30 minute drive for me. I try to go every month because it’s a good excuse to get out of Killeen and also because I like to eat.


I could go to all these food trucks any day I want but there’s just something more fun about them all being gathered in one area. And they usually have music and there’s all sorts of stuff going on.
