I had a nice three day weekend in Maryland with my family. Somehow it passed by way too quickly, but it always does. On Friday afternoon, Jason and I flew in to BWI airport. It’s a little farther from National or Dulles, but sometimes you can save as much as $40 per person. My mom took the day off so she was able to pick us up. We were going out to a nice dinner on Saturday night, so we decided to keep it laid back and stay home and grill.
First up: shrimp!
I don’t know why I never think to grill shrimp when I’m at home, but I never do. It’s easy though and they were tasty.
We also had salad.
And I sauteed some brussels sprouts basically using this recipe, which is my go-to brussels sprouts recipe. The key is getting them charred. Really. The key would also be to take a picture that isn’t blurry, but I apparently haven’t quite mastered that yet. Or the char, I guess. These could have used a little more.
For our entrees, my mom and I shared some swordfish, while Jason had steak.
Grilling is one of those things that we always say we need to do more often and then we don’t. I guess it’s because Jason and I really only have one night where we eat dinner together (Saturday) without him either being very tired (Friday) or needing to be tired so he can go to sleep (Sunday). So we often will go out to dinner on Saturday nights. But, we really do need to grill more often.
