I’m happy to say that even though it was chilly out, we had our first BBQ of the year last week.

Our family rallied together to made it happen!

Getting the BBQ ready


On-sale chicken thighs


With quick and easy seasoning


Mixing veggies


It was 8:30 when we sat down to eat.  It was dark outside, but we had the torches lit, a candle on the table, and the moon was shining bright.

The most important thing was that the 5 of us were together.

Our meal wasn’t fancy, but it was healthy, and our family conversation was robust, as our son had just returned from his first Greyhound bus experience, visiting our friends up north.  We laughed our heads off at some of the interesting (scary!) bus stories …

Have you had your first BBQ this season?



And what did you serve?
