BBQ’s, dinners on the patio, picnics on the beach, these are a few of the reasons I can’t stop smiling because it’s officially Summer and that means all of these things are happening on the regular!!!
Yesterday was the first official day of summer, and with the start of summer comes the start of grilling season!
When most people think of grilling, they think meats, Coffee Crusted Tri Tip, Chili Lime Shrimp, or Chicken Fajita Skewers, and while I love all these meaty dishes on the grill, I also love grilled vegetables!
As a professional food blogger, I spend a lot of time at the grocery store, I mean, A LOT!
I’m always intrigued when a new grocery store comes to town and excited to see what it’s all about!
While ALDI has been in business for over 40 years in the US, now operating over 1,500 stores in 34 states, they’re new to Southern California and just diving into San Diego!
Last week, I took a trip to their new location in Vista (North San Diego) to check out what the store was all about!
Three weeks ago, I was a judge at San Diego’s Bacon & Barrels Festival for the second year in a row. (I know, I know, my job does NOT SUCK! 😉 )
This years highlight for me was a Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewer from Corbin’s Q, a local San Diego BBQ catering company, that I seriously can’t wait to hire for an event sometime soon!
In addition to making my favorite dish at the festival, they’re also the nicest people! Don’t you love when that happens?! Super sweet people making super scrumptious food, nothing makes me happier
Since they don’t currently operate a restaurant in San Diego (fingers crossed that will change someday soon!) I had to come home and recreate their delicious skewers so I could get another taste of the goodness!
Secret confession: I’m also always looking for any excuse to make my super simple, super delicious 10 minute teriyaki sauce recipe 😉
Today, I’m changing the game when it comes to tacos y’all!
I eat a lot of tacos, I mean, have you seen my Instagram page?
Taco Tuesday, Taco Thursday, Taco any-day-that-ends-in-Y 😉 I love tacos!
