Genetics


It's sort of a family joke at my parent's house that when Mom plans supper and the main dish is to be grilled, it's generally raining outside. This happens before my mom has any idea of the impending rain. She doesn't send Dad out in the rain on purpose, it just works out that way.
Today in my neck-o-the-woods it's raining. It's a really nice spring rain. No severe weather or strong winds just a gentle sprinkle. It's been going on all day long now since around 7:30am. It's now nearly 2:30pm and it's still sprinkling outside.
Did I mention what I had planned for supper? Grilled Italian chicken breasts. Yup. They've been marinating in the fridge since last night. Before the rain began. I have two options I can stand in the rain and flip the chicken or I can just bake them in the oven. I haven't decided yet. In true Kaiser family fashion I may just have to brave the sprinkle and turn on the grill. sigh...

I say cook in the rain, and enjoy God's watering!

Enjoy your dinner! :)

Hey Cara, thanks for your comments. I even tried going out in the rain and the ignitor and regulator are sort of fizzling out on the grill. I had to start up the oven instead. :(

At least it's not snowing on them.... yet. (whiny groans somewhat stifled).

Bummer. I was just going to write and ask what you ended up doing.

I have the grill on our back upper deck so I just wheel it up to the sliding glass door and grill from the warmth of the indoors, rain-sleet-or snow :) tricky......
