BBQ Season is HERE!!!
Another delicious Tasty Tuesday idea for you!!! I love BBQ season so much - one of the silliest things about BBQing that makes me happy is there are no dishes!!! I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who loves the idea of a dinner without all of the mess.
I have not yet tried this one, but am always on the lookout for new ideas and when I came across this, I had to share! We are off to Punta Cana tomorrow, so will definitely be testing this bad boy out when we come back! I hope you all enjoy!
