So the first official day of Spring was in the mid-70’s today.  I say official, because it’s pretty much been spring around here since October.  One of the warmest winters in recorded history.  It’s supposed to hit 78° tomorrow and 80° on Thursday and Friday.  It’s definitely making me nervous about summer…

But regardless of the time of year, hot weather means firing up the grill.  Cold weather means firing up the grill, also, but we don’t get nearly the weird looks when it’s nice out as we do when it’s snowing… Go figure.

Tonight’s dinner was as basic as basic can be…  bone-in chicken breasts with bottled bbq sauce, grilled asparagus with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and roasted red potatoes.  The chicken cooked for about 35 minutes and was just perfectly done.  Bone-n chicken just has so much more flavor than its boneless-skinless counterpart.  And all it takes is one fresh off the grill to remind me that I really need to buy more…

And to top it all of, we had ice cream for dessert – because it’s still 70° at 8pm.

I really could get used to this weather.  No heat, no air conditioning…  Windows open…  Slight breeze…

Did I mention I’m slightly worried about the coming summer?!?
