Exciting News!

Howdy folks...it is a beautiful Saturday here in Iowa.  Very hot and humid, but I'm not complaining!  The little man and I got outside early to run off some energy before it got too hot.  He'd stay out there all day if I let him.

So, after a long week (even though Monday was a holiday), I finally got around to checking my emails last night.  Guess what was in my inbox?

An invitation from Taste of Home to become one of their field editors!  I had applied many moons ago, and honestly had forgotten about it.  Of course I accepted.  My name will now be among the many other field editors across the country in the back of the magazine.  And who knows maybe some of my recipes will be published?

First I have to determine which ones to send in.  Way to many to choose from.  Do you have any favorites?

And if you do not already receive the Taste of Home magazine you should.  There, that is my plug.  I enjoy their easy, family style recipes.  No fussy ingredients, no 10-step recipes, no worries.

Last night after a LONG day, we still wanted to grill for dinner.  Somehow the husband put me in charge of the grilling, as he wanted to work on his boat.  I'm not quite sure how I agreed, other than I was ravenous, so I said yes, which is a tad scary as I am not the grill master in this house.

But, I think I did pretty good judging on these photos right?

Mushroom and Swiss Burgers

Garlic and Dill Roasted Potatoes
I'm pretty sure I'll be doing potatoes on the grill like this all summer.  On a high heat, they only took about 20 minutes, and got nice and crispy.  Tonight I'm even attempting my Sweet & Spicy BBQ Turkey Meatloaf on the grill.  With maybe a repeat of these potatoes.

Wish me luck.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!  I'm now off to put the kiddos down for a nap, and get myself a much needed shower:)
