Last night was a lot of fun! Nothing fancy, but a couple friends came over while we BBQ’ed.
In Texas we are very opinionated about our BBQ techniques! While I don’t really have a huge preference for charcoal versus propane grills, Chris has always been a charcoal man. Plus we had ribs on the menu and those HAVE to be smoked for best flavor! Love that our grill is large enough to accommodate so much food! I should have taken a picture with the lid open so you could see – we had ribs, chicken breasts, sausages, asparagus in foil, and potatoes.
Some of the meats:
And the asparagus – I had fresh minced garlic in there with a bit of butter. When it was done I put slices of brie on top to melt.
Then this morning I started the day right with a giant protein pancake topped with some fresh blueberries & a drizzling of 100% pure maple syrup
Then, I spent a good chunk of the afternoon making THESE over

Isn’t this flower pot so cute? My sister got it for me!
And then rewarded myself with a delicious Eegee!
An Eegee is hard to describe – like a mix between a snow cone and a slush, with real fruit chunks. PERFECT for sunny, warm afternoons!
I got a kid size: half strawberry and half lucky lime (even though it looks yellow for some reason?)
The lime is a seasonal flavor and I guess they call it “Lucky Lime” for St. Patty’s Day? Anyone doing anything special to celebrate? It’s been years since I’ve really “celebrated” St. Patrick’s Day. If anything, I may go to an Irish Pub for dinner, then call it a night.
And now we’ve rented Due Date so we’ll be hanging out at the house while I intermittently watch the movie and work on prepping my lectures for the week.
What was your favorite part of the weekend? Do anything special?
Do you have a garden? Any tips? I’m notorious for killing plants!!!
