Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend – my sister came into town to visit, and usually this is a time when spending increases – eating out, visiting touristy spots, buying souvenirs, etc. But instead, we bought our first little grill and are eating outside all weekend! The grill set us back about $25, but we’d spend that much even on a single fast food meal for us. We’ve got cedar plank griled salmon, beer-marinated brats, and steaks wrapped with bacon on the menu, all at prices much less than any comparable restaurant. And to be patriotic, it’s Bud Light all the way. Careful with those fireworks!
