It’s summer and that means heat which means BBQs, parties, and plenty of other opportunities to enjoy refreshing cocktails. In our family one of these opportunities presents itself once a month when we have family dinners. Each month we get together with my husbands’ parents, his sister and her family to relax, have a few drinks, and enjoy good food.

Favorite Summertime Grilling Products

Favorite Summertime Grilling Products-Cameron's BBQ Grilling Pans-Steven Raichlen's Project Smoke Barbeque Rubs

So, summertime in the South is in full force. The kids are out of school, my son (a recent high school graduate) is looking for his first job and getting ready to attend community college, and  my husband is puttering around the yard placing bird feeders and deer licks and grilling like a fool! Plenty of family events (and family drama), too, recently. LOL

It’s soooo hot and it’s been pretty stormy so far this year, but it would take a lot more than that to stop us from grilling out and enjoying our yard and covered deck. Cameron’s Products offer some really great grilling products that our family are enjoying this season.

My husband is the resident griller. I limit myself to using the George Foreman indoor countertop grill because I’m not going to be the one to mess up the outdoor grill. No Thank You!!! He really likes the Cameron’s Barbeque Grilling Pans because sometimes he likes to sauté peppers and onions alongside the beef or chicken, other times corn on the cob or potatoes. [read more]

Road Trippin’ Through The South (Summer 2015) PART TWO

My family took a road trip recently to Oklahoma to see our daughter’s long-time boyfriend graduate from Army Basic Training at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. We stopped at several interesting locations along the way. This series of posts is to document those stops and share what we experienced with all of you.

PART ONE of this series shared our first stop along the way in Nashville, Tennessee. If you  want to read that post, click HERE. I will be updating all posts with links to the others in the series.

Memphis, Tennessee

Our second stop on the trip was in Memphis, Tennessee — home of the Rock ‘n Soul Museum, B.B. King’s Blues Club and Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland. We stayed in Memphis for two days. This post will be regarding our first day there, during which we walked the streets of downtown Memphis, toured the Rock ‘N Soul Museum and ate dinner at the B.B. King Blues Club. Part Three, coming soon, will cover our second day in Memphis and our tour of Graceland…. [read more]
