The Sun is Shining…

…and I’ve got all the components for some good grillin’.

A good, sturdy side dish.

A cold, good old fashioned American beer.



I got nothin’.

No burgers.  No meat to make burgers.  No meat to make anything, actually.

If you know me at all, you know that I’ve been itching to fire up my grill for over a month and complaining to anyone who has ears about how the weather is “seriously impeding my ability to find happiness via grilled meats”.

Ah well, there’s always one of these:

and a bag o’ brussels:

Ok, so it’s not exactly the all-American dog/brat/steak/burger laden dinner I was anticipating.

But the sun was out.

Well, until the fog rolled in.

This is Chicago after all.

I’m not about to waste perfectly good sunshine on lack of meat.

Just close your eyes and you can almost hear the sizzle.

  1. Any gal who can drink a miller lite as a side dish is an instant soul mate. I need to make a trip to Chicago. Going there when it’s actually warm has been on my bucket list for a long time. May have to make it happen!

  2. We grilled 3 of 4 nights here with my family. Our last night the propane tank ran out mid-grill. Tragic, I tell you. We had to finish the brats and kebabs and stuffed pork in the broiler. Not the same…sigh.

    • That’s seriously tragic. My grill seems to be on the fritz at the moment- I need to get that figured out before next weekend.

  3. I am in love with meals pieced together like this. Potatoes? You know how I love them. Baked beans? Now you know how I love them. Brussels? Sweet sweet lord I love them.

    WIsh I could do some grilling with you!!

    • Ooh, don’t threaten me with a good time. We need to figure out a way to do some grilling together, STAT.

  4. I lament the fact that my apartment in the city means I have no grill pretty much constantly. I need to find a solution to this
