Ok, truth be told I live in Florida. So grilling season it pretty much every day of the year except for the random two weeks scattered throughout the winter that it actually gets too cold.
But still, there is something about the school year being over that has me looking forward to lazy afternoons with the kids by the pool.
Anyone who knows me knows that one of my favorite things in the world is sauces.
