Two Peas and Their Pod: Josh's Birthday BBQ

Josh's Birthday BBQ

Josh's birthday was on Saturday. I surprised him with a new grill. He had no clue. He walked into the garage and there it was! I am glad my dad was in town to help me pick it out and bring it home. 

We had a birthday bbq to celebrate. It was great fun and Josh was a master on the new grill. He grilled up Italian Sausages with peppers and onions, Lemon Pepper Chicken, Buffalo Chicken, and Portobello Mushrooms. There was something for everyone to enjoy. We also had a green salad, chips and salsa, watermelon, and juicy pineapple. Everything was delicious! Oh, and of course we had cake, but I will be sharing the recipe in my next post, so come on back! 

We are looking forward to many more bbq's this spring and summer! 

No real recipes to share, everything was super easy! For the chicken, Josh marinated some of it in Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce. Josh really liked it, not as good as his hot wings, but still good:) He also seasoned some chicken with fresh lemon juice and lemon pepper. The Italian Sausages were from Colosimo's, the guys added grilled peppers and onions. I brushed the portobello mushrooms with balsamic vinegar. Really simple and really tasty. 

Happy Birthday Joshua! Thanks for being the greatest husband! I love you!

Jealous over that grill and now I want a new one.

Chicken soaked in Frank's Red Hot is magical chicken and that is another one of my favorite ways to do it. Of course being I love my heart so much I always end up tossing in some butter too.

Looking forward to a flood of BBQ posts!
