Feels like grillin' weather

For people like me every day is a good day to fire up the grill. But I'm not most people. Which means that if I want my evening bike ride to be a trip through olfactory heaven I have to wait for days like today. Sun's out and it might hit 80 degrees. We're heading into the glorious long days of summer so it'll still be light out when everyone starts thinking about dinner. Barbecue should be the very first thing that comes to mind, am I right? lol

I've got chicken all ready to brine, some fresh young ears of sweet white corn, and chunks of apple wood and mesquite to flavor them all up nice. Throw in a crisp green salad from the garden and a freshly brewed pitcher of iced tea and I should be set. And I would be, 'cept this season's garden is full of salsa makings. heh. Peppers, garlic, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro do not a tossed salad make. Almost, but not quite. So pasta salad it'll be

Y'all are invited if you're in the neighborhood Very Happy

Love it.
I've been itching to haul the grill out of winter retirement, but haven't had the extra cash for a new propane cylinder (and I don't own a charcoal grill). Weather's still cold and windy here, but... grilling!!

Ah lucky you!
It's been a horrible Springtime so far here in the UK. Last March I was down the beach with 23C (74F) temperatures. This year March was around 1C (34F) down south where I am, with sub-zero snowdrifts further north. April has been equally miserable although today has been the warmest of the year so far at 14C (57F) but northern England has still been around freezing.

I'm hoping to get to California at some point this year, a friend of mine lives in Paso Robles, so my plan is a flight and however long I can cover financially in missed work to stay out of the 90 days maximum us Brits are allowed. Probably be around September/October, just when the weather gets crap again here Smile

Chicken turned out wonderful. Corn, too, Even the pasta salad was excellent. Unfortunately high winds drove everyone else's appetites indoors Razz
Their loss Very Happy
