Buy a grill for Father’s Day

Since Father’s Day is this weekend, grill savings are the perfect gift idea for the dad in your life! You can celebrate Father’s Day with a brand new grill from The Home Depot, just in time for grilling this summer (and weekend!)

5-Burner Open Cart LP Gas Grill in Stainless Steel and Black with Side Burner

This week we’ve grilled tri tip and Best Grilled Chicken Thighs on our brand new grill.

My KITCHEN TIP is to double up on the amount of meat when we are grilling, so we have leftovers for meals later in the week.

For instance, we love leftover tri tip for this light summer dinner: Tri Tip Crostini. So good!

How to make Best Grilled Chicken Thighs marinade

This is one of my go-to marinades for grilling. It’s so simple, you won’t believe it.

Just think “3-part” soy sauce (we use coconut aminos to make it gluten free), honey, and water!

Mix together and marinate overnight!
