Beth had to work late tonight, so I hosted a Community Group cookout at my place—the inaugural run of my new grill. It's my first, so I had irrational joy and even initial nervousness about the whole affair. Everything went wonderfully; we feasted on chicken andouille and chicken and apple sausages, and cajun and garlic hot dogs, plus all the usual sides (veggies and dip, fruit, chips and dip, soda). Made me happy, it did. I have a grill, and I cooked meat on it.
