Why? Weekends!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Wasn’t the weather just perfect?! Our weekend was busy with lots of cookouts and friends and family time, as holiday weekends tend to be.

On Thursday evening, our friends Jeff and Erin, who are married AND share a birthday, had a dual birthday cookout. This was Jeffrey’s first cookout and, seeing as he slept through most of it, I’m not sure how impressed he was.

Matthew and I were very impressed with Erin’s cooking, however. From ribs and chicken on the grill to an orzo salad to a variation on The Greenhouse Tavern‘s “devils on horseback,” the food was quite tasty!

On Friday, we celebrated the Fourth with my family, which always involves plenty of good food, good margaritas, and good times.

Saturday brought the third annual Poise in Parma cookout/birthday celebration. Any excuse to spend the day with these fine folks is alright with me!

There was the usual grilling, eating, chatting, Honey Hut Ice Cream devouring, and Cards Against Humanity playing. I was so excited because Hans saved me a Great Lakes Brewing Christmas Ale to enjoy as my adult beverage of the day.

So, all in all, a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! How did you celebrate the Fourth?
