SOL Day 25: Cookout

One of our favorite activities in the Spring, Summer, and into the Fall is grilling out. We don't have one of those fancy gas grills. We use a charcoal grill. There's just something about the taste of meat grilled over charcoal that just makes it taste better.

Tonight, we decided that we would make our bratwurst on the grill rather than just boiling them in sauerkraut like we always do. Of course, they start out in the sauerkraut but then we move to the grill for the final touch. It ended up being a really nice day in spite of the thunderstorm on the middle of the night, so grilling out seemed logical.

Whenever we grill out, I make potato packets to go along with the meat. It's just a rectangle of aluminum foil containing potatoes, onion, butter, and spices wrapped up and cooked on the grill. Everybody loves this way of doing potatoes. Of course, we followed it up with toasted marshmallows. 

Unfortunately, it may be a while before it is nice enough to grill out again, but the memories of this time will hopefully sustain me. That, and the pictures I snapped to share with this post.
