So I've been doing plenty of cooking and baking, but I just haven't felt the motivation to write about it. I realized today that I hadn't made an entry in over a week, and that's really less than impressive. Yesterday I'd really wanted to grill, but since we live in an apartment with rules about that sort of thing we had to wait for Pug to get off work and head to the park. And then we found out that we were really low on charcoal. Pug then called Jett who brought us extra charcoal, but being the end of summer it got too dark for us to actually eat and the park and the corn took to long to roast anyway. So we came home to oven roast the corn and reheat the chicken that had an absolutely incredible charcoal flavor, which I've missed. I keep telling Pug that the first thing I'm buying when we eventually move into a house is a good charcoal grill. He's told me that's impractical as we may need to buy a fridge or oven. I think I could shop every day, and who needs an oven when I could grill. My dad taught me use a charcoal grill from stacking and lighting the coals to how to lay out the meat when I was 13. So I love charcoal grills, is the point of this rambling mess.
A few nights ago Rose took me and another of her friends to see Cowboy Mouth in concert. I'd never heard of them before that night, but the show was a lot of fun and I will definitely go again, next time their in town.
Pug's other set of parents, Grampy and Grammy are coming to town this weekend for a quick visit. If the weather cooperates, we're thinking of driving a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway and maybe doing a bit of hiking and enjoying a picnic. That should be fun!
