More than a burger or brat
Tonight Mike had some buddies over to our place before heading to a concert. He told me they were going to grill beforehand. Most people understand that to mean hamburgers and hot dogs and maybe even some chicken if you're really going to get crazy. Sides usually include chips and something mayonnaise-based. Not him. He cut and marinated pork for souvlaki and grilled it alongside a special steak for one of the guys. Then he put together a roasted pepper and chick pea salad and also a strawberry salad -- which he made his own dressing for! And, of course, there's no cheap beer here. Only Boulevard could match the status of this menu. Who did I marry? If this architecture gig doesn't work out, he's got plenty of potential for designing great dishes in the kitchen!
