The Grill Master’s Back

Nat and I each had a pretty good day today. He’ll disagree, of course, as he golfed this morning and he played horribly!! But at least he was able to get out, enjoy his friends and some beautiful weather.

While he was gone I put some bread in the old bread maker and chopped veggies for a stir fry tonight. I also put away some winter coats for the season and then surfed the net while waiting for the bread. Once the dough was finished rising, I made half a dozen rolls from one half and a small French loaf from the other half.

With some positive brain waves going through his head, Nat cleaned up the barbecue this afternoon. Getting ready for what we hope will be a great summer. As we’ve now got the barbecue about 5 steps from our kitchen, we’re really looking forward to using it and preparing some good meals. I found the BBQ utensils that were still unpacked, cleaned them up and found a good spot for them in the kitchen close at hand for my “Grill Master” that I married!!

The stir fry was pretty damn good. I had to improvise a little, as there was no Soy Sauce, but I threw in some onions, carrots, celery, broccoli and chicken pieces, while Nat mixed up some (chicken) Bisto and water for a very flavorful sauce. Along with some nice warm bread from the oven, we had a delicious and healthy meal. I actually haven’t done a good stir fry for quite some time and it was a real treat. Nothing like a good meal after a good day!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
