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.
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.
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 with a smidge of butter and salt.
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.
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!!
