Grillin' and Chillin'


Here it comes girls ~ the first weekend of the outdoor grilling season.
The ONLY time when my husband takes part in meal preparation.




I do the shopping.  I set the table and David mans the grill.



He is pretty proud of his grilling and loves to accept compliments.




Bentley and I call him "Patio Daddy-O"!




His domain is the backyard deck!
Go Patio Daddy-O Go!

Joining

and

Bentley keeps close tabs.  You never know when a tasty morsel might
hit the deck!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  14. Love your red, white, and blue! My husband also loves to grill and does so several nights a week. I love it because there are many fewer pots and pans to wash! Your photos are wonderful!

  20. Love your red, white and blue. I really like the blue stemware...I have them in aqua and pink, but think I like the blue better! Have a great weekend, Susan.

  22. Very cute! Love the Patio-Daddio nickname -- I think I will spring it on the husband this weekend LOL!

  23. I love those plates.. wow aren't they stunning pieces. porker tools are so cool. I might need to be on the lookout for those. Isn't it funny that the men become involved at the word "grill"? Such a hoot. Have a blessed week and weekend.. xo marlis

  24. Don't you love how the men grill, but we have to do everything around it, to make it happen! LOL!

    Well done, love the whole look!

  31. Patio Daddy-O...that's hilarious! It must be nice to take a night off! Every once in awhile my husband will grill...sort of. I marinate and do all the prep work, and he basically just puts it on the grill. That's it! Oh yeah...and then he EATS it, which he thinks is a great contribution toward the cause! :-) You have set a very nice table for your first Official Unofficial Weekend of Summer with great colors to remind us of what the holiday is all about. Enjoy, and don't forget to kiss the cook!
