It’s the BOY’s first real day off all semester and so no surprise he headed straight for the grill!
This afternoon, he made us a healthy lunch! After which we drove off to check out the latest new grocery store in town. We are so spoiled with a newish Whole Foods, the brand new Mariano’s, and now a Tony’s!
I’ve heard only great things about this store which is located throughout the Chicago area, and we now have one of our own.
Their produce is extensive and well priced. The BOY found himself lost in the meat aisle and the seafood had my mouth watering. Speaking of watering mouths, this expansive pastry counter was filled with rich, colorful, and decadent sweets.
It didn’t take the BOY long to pick out a few of the 79 cent treats for dessert tonight.
We left will a full cart for a more than fair price! The BOY went straight to the back yard to prepare tonight’s pulled pork in his smoker. I got comfortable in the sun with a new lighter book by one of my favorite chick lit authors.
It was a successful start to the week, and meal planning is a cinch now that the BOY is doing most of the work on the grill! Although sadly tonight, his smoker yielded smoked pork instead of pulled pork. I had an easy substitute frozen veggie burger, but I could tell the BOY was disappointed at he at his smoked pork sandwich. Next time, I will go back to this crockpot pulled pork recipe which was incredible!
