Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also!
Memorial Day weekend is almost here! The sales! The food! Who's going camping? I'm not, but if you are I hope you have fun. And everyone be safe!! For goodness sake, I make a point to not drive anywhere past the afternoon on Memorial Day because people get crazy! I think it's the beginning of summer, it gets to you. Or at least that's how it felt in Alaska, coming out of the cold, dark winter... anyway. :)
This week's question: Who wears the grillin apron in your house? You or your significant other? Someone else? Let me know! I'm curious. :)
My answer: I love grilling! I know Mr. Eight does too but he's been on nights pretty much all 3 years we've been married and so he hasn't been around to do a lot of grilling in the day time. On top of that, for the entire time he's been on nights he also did not get holidays off. Lucky for us, this year he's doing something a little different right now and so he has a 3 day weekend just like normal people! Yay! I'm getting off track.
The point is, if I wanted something grilled I had to do it myself. We recently went out and bought a really nice propane grill. I've learned how to work it but for some things I miss charcoal. I did ribs for the first time on propane and I didn't like it that much. I like doing the wood chips, banking the coals, all that jazz. If I do ribs again this weekend I think I'll bust out the little charcoal grill for it! I'll be posting my favorite rib rub and bbq sauce recipe soon too!
