I’m sorry if you don’t live in The South right now because we are having our two weeks of perfect weather. (I exaggerate, but we really only get a few weeks of spring before it becomes brutally hot!)
Since our family is on a Media Break (for Seven), we’ve been looking for different ways to spend our time together than in front of the TV or computer, so this week we had a Front Porch Picnic.
Our back deck is currently all ripped up, so we set up a hot dog picnic in our front yard.
Taido grilled the hot dogs and corn inside the husks.
If you’ve never grilled corn this way, you must try it.
You peel back the husks, remove the strings and then close the husks back around the corn. Then you grill it for about 25 minutes, turning the corn a couple of times in the process.
We couldn’t believe how sweet the corn was. It seems early in the year for it to be so yummy and sweet!
Cole ate four hot dogs, my friends. I am not even kidding you. I didn’t even get a picture of him with his food because he eats so fast.
Mary Polly’s plate.
My plate. (wink)
The weather really has been perfect for the last few days. We sat outside for a long time after we finished eating. Mary Polly and Ben took off on their bikes, and Simon played with his friend next door. Taido and I even visited with our neighbors, which we don’t do nearly enough!
If you want to have a Front Porch Picnic of your own, I have posted before about how to have a Fancy Hot Dog Party with lots of topping ideas and pictures.
Happy Grilling Season, Friends!
I am a Blue Diamond Club member with Petit Jean Meats, which means they send me products to try and share with you. I received the three packages of grillers for our Front Porch Picnic, but all opinions are my own, of course. If you live in the area, and you don’t want to fix your own hot dog, you can head to the baseball field (Dickey-Stephens) because they are serving Petit Jean Grillers up out there this summer at the Travelers games!
