Spring is in the air March 16, 2012Posted by Peeps in Cooking, Food, Garden, Home, random stuff.
Even though Spring is still officially a few more days away, the weather here has been nothing short of amazing.
We’ve been having temperatures in the upper 60s for several days. Even though this has been the mildest Winter I can remember, it’s been very nice to not have to put on a couple layers just to walk the dog.
And since I just finished tilling my wife’s vegetable garden to get it ready for planting, I realized that unless we get hit with nasty late Winter weather, I can start looking forward to the cooking of food outdoors again.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love the long roasted and braised foods and soups of wintertime. They make the house smell like home.
But the barbecue I stashed in the freezer last Fall is running low. As is our bacon supply. And I’m really starting to crave something done on the grill. Just about anything done on the grill.
So, with that in mind, I’m going to have to start stocking up on smoking and grilling supplies. And looking for the best deals I can on meat that’s going to end up in the smoker or on the grill. And beer! We’ll need plenty of that to go with smoky meat.
I need to start making a list. Enjoy the weather as it gets nicer. Have a safe
amateur night St. Patrick’s Day. I’m staying home. I have plans to make.
