We did a pre-Memorial Day celebration this evening. Invited Jilda's brother Ricky, his wife Debbie, Samantha, and Jordan over for supper.

Jilda chopped up some orange, yellow, and red peppers with Vidalia Onions. We have a grill basket that is perfect for grilling veggies. We tossed on some hotdogs and Conecuh Sausage. The Conecuh sausage comes from Conecuh County, Alabama which is south of Montgomery. I'm not sure they sell these "up north" which is a shame because they are scrumptious.

Normally I have a beer when I do grill work, but it was a little early, so I had some sweet tea instead.

Talking ceased when the food hit the table. The only sounds clicking forks, and grunts that made it sound as if it were a time before language fully developed.

It was a great way to kick off the holiday weekend.


  1. I love grilled veggies. I would have had the beer anyway. Beer and grilling goes well together.
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Those vegies look great. Beer? Not my tipple. And (we don't have it here) I suspect sweet tea isn't either.

  3. Your vegetables are making my mouth water.

  4. Sounds great, love the grilling basket!

  5. Wow, I haven't seen a griller like that in years - I think we used them to grill chops over an open fire. In the Olden Days. lol


  6. That's the way to do it! Glad you had a great start to the holiday weekend!

  7. Yum! We get our Conecuh sausage our here via mail-order.

  8. Nope, never heard of Conecuh sausage but my imagination was sending the lovely smells of grilling up this way! Enjoy your Memorial Day and thanks for your service to our country.
