Time to open up the Grill!

Sorry, I've fallen off the blog bandwagon lately. I've been preparing my house for spring (more to come on that subject later.) 

With spring on the way, I can't wait to start grilling! Jake is going to start a new hobby this year: smoking! Ok, people don't get all but it causes lung cancer on me. He is going to start smoking MEAT! He is going to make the smoker using this site as guidelines:

Should be interesting! I shall have to post pics and the results afterwards. If everything goes well, it'll be really yummy! The oncology nurse in me does want to add the disclaimer that eating lots of smoked meat puts you at risk for colon cancer- so just everything in moderation!

Jake and I love a good cold beer with chips and dip while we grill. Here is our favorite dip recipe- it's the best!

Southwest Dip

One medium sized container of sour cream
One packet of Taco Seasoning
Throw it all together in a bowl, mix, and enjoy!
