“Summertime…  and the livin’ is easy…  “

Okay…  Summer is officially a month away.  But Memorial Day Weekend is the official kick-off to the BBQ season.  Not that we need an official kick-off around here – we do tend to grill year-round – but we don’t need a down jacket when we’re outside, anymore…

We’ve pretty much skipped Spring, again, and have headed right into Summer.  Hot and Muggy.  Gotta love the Mid-Atlantic states…

We started the grilling season last night with tri-tip brochettes.  Tri-tip roast cut into cubes and marinated in red wine, olive oil, garlic, and rosemary.  Skewered wuith onions, mushrooms, peppers, and a couple of pieces of andouille sausage that needed using up.  Rice and corn.

Tonight was American Kobe Beef Burgers.

The burgers were great.  I was feeling lazy after a long day at work, so we had store-bought potato salad and baked beans.  Sometimes ya just have to go with it…

I did make some homemade shortcakes, though…  Strawberries are sliced and macerating as I type.

Strawberry Shortcake and fresh whipped cream is on the menu for later…
