we still have one day left in the 'official kick off to summer long weekend', naturally this means mr. handsome and i are BBQ'ing to our hearts content and stocking up on propane as we bid farewell to indoor cooking.

yesterday morning while tiding up around the house (pre sunday-funday festivities) we had the tv tuned to food network for a Bobby Flay's BBQ Addiction marathon.  looking to be inspired for our own weekend BBQ we went to the grill master himself, and as always BF doesn't disappoint...

on the menu:
