Biking season and grilling season are now open

Spring is in the air. I have some qualms with it coming earlier each year, but a huge part of me revels in the gorgeous weather. Two of my favorite things start up with this grand weather- biking and grilling.

Bike season started Friday for me. I rode to the gym and worked out and ride back to the car. I left my bike on my car so I could do it again the next day, but I forget sometimes I live in Seattle. So I got up and dressed, putting on my biker shorts and shoes, grabbed my regular shoes and stepped outside, super excited to get another ride in for my weekend, and it was raining. But the forecast shows that there will be several nice days this coming week, so I’m sure I’ll get a couple rides in to work. I’m really looking forward to it.

And with the great weather, my favorite place to eat has started up his grill! Last summer, Chris and I spent just about every Saturday at B’s Tequila Grill. We are everything from bison burgers to alligator, and veggies to die for- zucchini, sweet potatoes, eggplant, and even grilled peaches. It was the BEST! So when I saw a video demonstrating how to make BBQ “sushi”, I knew it was time for B’s to open up again! I love experimenting with food, and Brent loves grilling so it’s a win-win. We made our rolls a little more healthy by substituting ground beef with ground turkey. And sheep’s milk cheese rather than regular cheese. But it was beyond delicious! I don’t know which I like more- bbq sushi or jalapeño poppers with goat cheese and bacon. Mmmmmm, jalapeño poppers…. I also made some eggplant appetizers with sheep cheese and tomatoes. I fixed four small eggplant but they were GONE within ten minutes. So that’s always a good sign.

Eating good food with good friends is always a fantastic way to finish up your weekend. If my workweek is anything remotely close to my weekend, I’m going to really be enjoying myself!
