BBQ season is here!

My BBQ King was hard at work last night on the deck while I was in the kitchen.  As much as I’d like to think I can BBQ a chicken breast… after he BBQ’s for dinner, I know he is the master.  So, while Mr. B. was outside cooking my chicken breast and his T-bone steak… I was in the kitchen cooking the mushrooms and potatoes he requested.DSC_0071

We enjoyed it so much that we’re having it for dinner again tonight.

I have to admit, I skipped my daily cardio today in favour of getting outside and working on our flower bed.  When we moved in to this house the backyard looked like this:

Not a total disaster, I realize.  I know it could be worse.  It’s hard to tell from this photo what a mess the grass truly is.  It’s all crabgrass and clover.  We’ve tried to put down topsoil and reseed several times already this spring and it’s not helping (we didn’t attack the crabgrass correctly).  We are surrendering and calling in the big guns.  Hopefully a professional can help.  We’re also creating one big flower bed along the fence line.  I’ll post ‘after’ pictures when it’s presentable.  We may end up cutting down the grapevine at some point too.

We’ve also had some recent visitors in the backyard as of late.

Can you see the mom, dad and baby?  Cute little pests.

Now it’s time to sit with my treat of the day while we wait for the backyard to cool down before tackling the flowerbed again.

BBQ season is here in NS too! One of my fav ways to cook and always seems like waaaaay less mess then when cooking on stove.
