Introducing Weber

Brad's parents were in town Easter weekend as they were making their journey back up to Indiana from their visit in Florida. As they stopped through, they bought Brad and me a grill as a housewarming gift. As you can see by those flames, he really does help keep our house (er, patio) nice and warm.

To break him in, we grilled some kabobs with Don & Elaine, Matthew & Heather, and Alex & Amber. How fun! I've never made any kind of kabob before, and we had a great time assembling them. I did get one (giant) splinter from the skewer, but it was totally worth it when I experienced the savory taste of chicken and pork and peppers and onions and mushrooms and tomatoes all grilled to perfection. Yuummmm...
While the boys were outside "being men," Heather was inside making a wonderful Dirt Cake dessert. It's her mom's signature recipe, and it's incredible. Thank goodness we had a dish that was (barely) big enough to contain the whole batch.

The guys got distracted by the tree in the backyard. They couldn't resist challenging each other to climb to the top. Brad won, by the way. Alex didn't get any higher than the trunk. I guess even men need to act like boys every once in a while.

I believe it was a successful inaugural cook out. The first of many, I'm sure. (Sidenote: Every meal at home since then has been cooked on the grill. Brad hasn't quite mastered the culenary art, yet. But he's determined to keep trying!)
