The 'meat' of it all

It's Friday night and DH and I have spent the last few days working on rebuilding our front porch, since the old one was starting to rot and was just plain old ugly. This means that I've neglected all other wifely duties such as grocery shopping and cooking. There is a celebratory mood in the air, however, and not just on our driveway!

The excitement is palpable all over the city that a) it's the Friday of a long weekend and b) it's "shorts" weather finally - we can at long-last throw off the shackles of winter!!

That means that it's officially BBQ weather, which solves the dilemma of what to cook for dinner. However, I am now going to have to share my secret with you, one that I've been holding on to since I moved into the neighbourhood: Jerry's Supermarket at Monarch Park and Danforth sells enormous $1.99 marinated beef and chicken shishkabobs that are better than any meat skewer item that I've ever bought elsewhere.

Throw in a loaf of bread from North Pole bakery and some [local] asparagus, and DH and I can eat like kings for under $10.

So if you see the strange site of two adults having a picnic dinner tonight on their driveway and staring lovingly at their new porch, that will be us!
