Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

Saturday Bliss

On a light and quick note, we 'broke in' our new gas grill today. Since our baby Son came down for a visit, we wanted to make something special and that he loves. Our dinner fare consisted of juicy rib eye steaks cooked over the fire along with smoked sausage, cheddar topped baked potatoes, and a steaming bowl of 'frijoles borrachos' or drunken beans. Freshly made hot sauce and a stack of home made flour tortillas completed the meal fixings. I have to credit my mate for his grilling the steaks to perfection! Gas grills really are convenient, no smoke inside the house, thank you very much. However, I have to say, mesquite firewood is the best for really bringing out the flavors of any meat. I do think though, that the Mate prefers the ease of the gas grill. There is a preparation and planning factor involved with using firewood, as well as an allowance for time to let the wood burn to just the right temperature. Not so with the grill. You just fire it up, and you're good to go after a few minutes. Very nice!

Congrats on your new gas grill. We have one and they are great, but we also have two other kinds. We haven't really barbecued much this year. I like the mesquite smell as well. Have a great week and glad you had a nice time.

The meal sounds so yummy! I love it when mom's (and dad's) make special meals for kids - even when we're all grown up. Over here in New England the summer was so wet I think we only grilled a handful of times.

Oh how fun! That little fella is my little son Anthony (5 mos Monday!). He's not so little (22lbs!) but he is such a lovey little guy!

Gloria, thank you for stopping by! You're always so nice with your comments. We also have a cast iron 'asador' or bbq grill, but like I said, it's a little troublesome to prepare the wood and stuff.

Beth, I hope maybe a drier Fall weather will make it even better for grilling outdoors for you'll! With a nice chill in the air, the bbq can do double duty. Yes, we do love pampering the kids when we can.

Tilly, thank you for your visit. Your baby is gorgeous! Enjoy him, they grow up so fast!

sounds yummy! I have to say that I do love a charcoal grill, but gas is easier!

Kelli said...

Your dinner sounds delicious and how wonderful to get a new grill!

We haven't gone gas yet. Still enjoy the taste of wood smoke best.
