Little Brothers Who Grill

As you know I have been trying desperately to learn to cook a few things in anticipation of my mother and brother coming up for Thanksgiving.
I am a horrible cook and am considered a serious fire risk by my closest friends.
So, imagine my relief when my brother unloaded his grill instantly as he arrived at my house. He unloaded 2 bags of charcoal, 4 coolers plus a quart of lighter fluid and began to "fire up" the grill.

I watched from the safety of the kitchen as I chatted with my mom.

Little did I know that it would be a turkey-less and mashed potatoe-less Thanksgiving.
Instead, little brother brought chicken, sausage and 2 inch thick Porterhouse steaks for our special day.

In addition he brought 8 different kinds of salads and mom made 2 of my utmost favorite desserts:
Snickerdoodles and Tapioca

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but especially today.
My family traveled a distance to come visit and my little brother saved me from a cooking embarassment and instead brought his favorite grill, gourmet food and great cooking skills to my front yard.
The next morning he even grilled outside as it started to snow, in his pajamas, to make brunch.

I may ask him to vist more often.....


  1. Happy to hear you got to spend time with your family!

  2. This was so cool for your brother to do. I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, even if there was no turkey or mashed potatoes.

  3. Oh my goodness! Now that's a handy man.
