What I'm Listening To: Goodbye Girl by Squeeze
With the temperatures in the mid 70's today in London, we were thrilled to be invited to dinner with friends of ours here who are also from the US. We opted to grill out hot dogs and hamburgers and have a good ol' American style dinner! We had some homemade dishes like BBQ baked beans and potato salad. YUM! It was topped off by roasting some "imported" marshmallows over the barbeque pit. All the kids had a blast.
When spring comes each year, I am pretty sensitive to everything that changes around me. For instance, there is something about the smell of the grill going, the blankets spread out on the grass, and the nice breeze in the air. It relaxes me almost immediately. I have noticed being here, little things can bring on a flood of memories about home. I was remembering how my dad always was grilling as I grew up. Even today, he grills all the time and it's such a wonderful memory of growing up for me...
You can imagine looking at this pic, the smell drew me in so I snuck a peek with my camera as our dinner was being cooked. And this image came out delicious I think! Can you smell them? I still can. I must give props to Matt, our chef who was manning the grill this evening. You've got some mad grillin' skillz! :)
Take care everyone.
