Boring post about Saturdays

Don't you love having a relatively free Saturday? Twin #2 had her dance recital which was fabulous! Our arts guild runs a wonderful dance program that's all about the art, and not dressing little girls up in ridiculous costumes and prancing them around like little Britney Spears wanna-bes. Twin #2 has been taking modern dance and I must say she's quite good.

Anyway - above we have the deck Johnny C is remodeling single-handedly.

Here's our firepit, again hand made by Johnny C. We had a campfire last night.

DINNER~paninis and burgers. Using the cast iron cookware on the grill is my favorite. Tonight's paninis were turkey, pesto, roasted red peppers, and provolone.

My frozen burgers. I've discovered that if I freeze burger patties, they still cook up just fine - first I defrost them a bit in the micro. I like to make mine with chopped garlic and parsley. And freezing them lets me load up when ground beef is on sale.

And no, I didn't use that much oil. It just likes to pool in the front of that pan.

Sounds like a lovely day! So much talent.

Interesting. I never thought of using a cast iron skillet that way.

I'm curious, does using your cast iron over the fire burn the seasoning off the outside? The outside of my dutch oven seems to have lost some of its coating after last week's use, although the inside is still just fine.

Great! Now I am just hungry as hell...

Yum and fun. I made paninis today too, but not as interesting as yours because there are so many foods I can no longer eat, darn. I made them indoors in the George Forman Grill. It works. Just squish them down.

Good thing the snow melted in time for your outdoor cooking. I expect it will snow a foot tonight and cover it back up.

Your man is so handy. You are one lucky hottie.

I fear that I have had my LAST unplanned and unfettered Saturday of the summer.

Isn't that awful?

Y'all have so much fun together. You're such a wonderful mom. Seriously, I mean that! All jokes aside. These are lasting memories that your girls will pass on to their girls and their girls will pass 'em down. All my relatives passed down to me was bad smoking habits, the ability to roll my own cigarette and the knowledge of how to make a good stiff drink!
