Gentlemen… Light Your Grills!

"Food is our common ground, a universal experience."  –James Beard

With the recent Memorial Day holiday, we begin the season of grilling!  What a wonderful time of year.  The weather is pristine with crisp, blue skies, puffy clouds, vibrant green hues of grass, and the wafting smell of a grill filled with steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob.  It is a classic method of cooking that inspires memories in me.

I think back to pool parties with friends – my dad acting as the grill master, as well as master of the 'biggest splash' once the feast was finished!  I remember my mother preparing the meats for grilling, and then the fun that would come from just sitting around the table, laughing and sharing with friends and family.  And what better way to finish up a barbecue than with a slice of cold watermelon?  Doesn't that sound great?

I am sure that you have memories of family barbecues as well.  Food truly is our common ground.  We have all had similar experiences, only the names and faces are different.  Think about a fun barbecue that you hosted, or one that you crashed!  Write it down and share it!  We love love to hear about it.

Until then, happy grilling!
