small_8417123720Hello and happy Friday! We’re already through one week of July and what a week it has been – between preparing for the 4th of July and then celebrating it, the week went by very quickly. Hopefully you had a great 4th of July!

These are some of my favorite food-related finds from all around the web this week.

Cheers – Jeff

(1) Ideas in Food: Grilled Flatbread

Yes, please!! Quickly grill flatbread after the rest of the meal is ready…then everything is ready to eat at the same time. Perfect and delicious.

(2) Root Simple: Watering 101

I’ve been working on my backyard grill set area for a few weeks now. I’m excited because it’s almost completed – all it needs now is a few plants! These are good (and timely) tips about watering.

(3) Patrons of the Pit: Dances With Wood: Maple Planked Bacon Cheese Burgers

In honor of this weekend’s burger bash! These sound amazing :-)

(4) Grapefriend: cocktail friend: dark & stormy

This site is quickly becoming my new best friend…and this is one of my all-time favorite cocktails.

(5) the improvised life: 4th of july pt 1: grill rigs + open-fire paella improvs

A brilliant improv! I NEED a Tuscan grill stand :-)

I hope you have a great weekend – happy grilling!
