Typically, I never ever post on Sundays, but I’m bumming around on Pinterest in preparation for our Memorial Day grill out with friends later today, and I thought I’d stop in to say hello.
I also thought that, maybe, some of you are doing the exact same thing I am—in which case, you might get a kick out of the list below.
As some of you know, I used to do a Top Ten series once a month, where I’d pull random things that amused me off Pinterest and tell you about them. For whatever reason, when Pinterest updated their look recently, I started having a lot more trouble finding the kind of random, strange things I was looking for. So I decided to put the TTs on hold, at least temporarily.
But I thought it wouldn’t hurt to do a Top Ten-like post now and then, and that’s where this post is coming from. Partially joking, partially serious…all in good fun. You’ll see what I mean.
How to impress your friends at a grill out:
1. Serve this drink, and then casually segue into a brief science lesson.
2. Employ a baby monitor…for your meat.
Apparently, it announces when the meat has been cooked to the desired temperature.
3. Sport a meat shawl.
So this might not necessarily impress your friends in the way you’re going for, but it’ll definitely impress them in a “that is one devoted grilling enthusiast” kind of way.
4. Go for edible dip bowls.
This is just a straight up good idea.
5. Grill watermelon.
People won’t believe their eyes!
…Unless they’ve been on Pinterest anytime in the last year. Then they already know all about this fad.
6. Grill banana boats.
Slightly more obscure, and probably even more delicious, than the watermelon. Your friends will be talking about this for weeks.
7. Make this:
Ok, that’s pretty extreme. But it would definitely be impressive.
8. Put the ketchup bottle away.
Unless you have kids…then I’m not sure this sends the right message.
9. Two words: lawn games.
This one seems reasonably doable, assuming you have a place to hang it and nothing of too much value behind it.
10. Have this backyard.
Happy Memorial Day, friends! I’ll be back on Tuesday to tell you all about my weekend and, of course, to recap my 10K yesterday!
