A feast on both your houses!

31 May

For Memorial Day, Michael, our bestie Mark and I had a tiny impromptu barbecue!

Tiny grill! ❤

Michael inherited this super cute little grill from our friends Fan and Mike when they left for Beijing last year. Now that it’s summer, I’ve been looking for excuses to fire it up. And by that, I mean coerce poor Michael into lighting it and then fanning the coals and breathing in lighter fluid. Grilling FTW!

MEAT! Glorious meat! Outdoor grilling on Memorial day!


One day, we will have a lovely gas grill that Michael can putter around with, but for now, this one is enough for our tiny gatherings.

On the menu: grilled parsley shrimp, best ever barbecue chicken wings & thighs, sage sausage rice stuffing and happy happy veggie kabobs (marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, garlic, pineapple juice and worcestershire sauce). The shrimp was especially easy and flavorful–the simple olive oil and parsley marinade really allows the shrimps’ flavor to come through and convince you that this is a healthy dish. I think I’ll be full for at least two days…

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day! Servicemen FTW!
