Something I will carry past COVID19 - Grill-a-thon and the family feast

I don't know what else to call it. We fired up the grill four times in the past week:

  • Grilled pork chops with Beth's delicious raspberry cornbread (see picture)
  • Burgers, 
  • Brats / metts / hot dogs 
  • And yesterday the big one: Beer can chicken.

Technically it was wine can chicken. We used chardonnay.

Beth's cornbread!

The grill-a-thon was born out of necessity. Kroger had been out of some meats in prior orders. So I put several different kinds of meat in the Kroger clicklist order, based on the "Well, we'll get something" logic.

We got everything.

Fortunately we had a backup plan when we placed the order: The weather looked like we could get to the grill frequently. If we had to miss a day we would simply put the hotdogs / brats / metts back, since they typically have the longest expiration date.

The highlight was yesterday when we did beer can chicken. The meal turned into a family feast. Beth made crock pot mac and cheese and vegetables. We had more than enough chicken for everyone. Beth made a chocolate chip pie for dessert.

Oh yeah, we also had wine. (Besides the chardonnay for the chicken)

We have had several family feasts during COVID-19, and so far one grill-a-thon. Both items are going to stay on the calendar going forward.
