June 12th, 2009: Brat bites

Hi gang!  After chatting with you all, I showered and got clean for the day. :p  But I was also wiped and ready to chill and hang with my boys.  I totally did not feel like going out and running errands.  Thankfully it is nothing pressing and I was able to say, “screw it, I’m staying home.”  Thus I started dinner prep work.  While I prepped dinner, there were snacks.

Chips and beer

I put out some baked salt&vine chips and potato&chive FoodShouldTasteGood chips for me and Jalapeno chips for Scott.  Plus Scott had a Summer Ale (first of the season!!) and I had a few sips of that.  Not much because I’m saving my drink game for when we start Game 7 (eeep!).  The S&V chips were perfect for me because it was the end of the bag so I got lots of little crumbs.  I just wanted something to keep the hunger at bay, nothing major.

The weather turned gorgeous so grill plans were on!  Since it’s game night, I decided to make some fun stuff.

Grilled brat

Brats! From Whole Foods that I simmered in beer and onions and various other spices for a bit.  Then tossed them on the grill to crisp and brown up.  There was sauteed red onion, green pepper, and cabbage to go with it.

Grilled corn on the cob

Grilled corn on the cob with a smidge of butter and salt.

Grilled zucchini and yellow squash

Grilled zucchini and yellow squash that had olive oil, buffalo sauce (Shylah, I do not make my own but I should totally try! I like Texas Pete’s Buffalo Sauce.), and grill seasoning.

Grilled corn, squash, and brats

Everything was fantasic and I’m totally satisfied with my dinner.  I had a dollop of spicy mustard to dip my brat bites in.  There was a very tiny brat in the bunch that I claimed as mine.  I ate half and two bites of the other half.

Now it’s time for some new jammies and to start Game 7!  Go PENS!!
