The days get shorter, the sun sets a little earlier, the temps are slowly creeping into sweater or jacket weather, our garden is nearly spent and over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen some pretty cute back-to-school photos in my social media feeds. But there’s one more final end-of-summer get-together before the onslaught of football and all things pumpkin; actually, we plan to gather family and friends around our table even after summer ends – and most likely our meals will include something grilled. Sometimes it’s brisket, chicken or smoked turkey breast, but quite often it’s something as simple as a great burger.
I am so. over. winter. No really, I am. This from someone who embraces each season, relishing the changes in the landscape, giddy over puffy, white clouds and bright blue skies as well as lover of rain clouds, fall leaves and the first snow . . . all within reason. But move it along, Mother Nature, let’s move it along already.
