An Ode to Grilling!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! One thing I love about Memorial Day is that it’s sort of the unofficial start to grilling season. Truth be told, I’m a fan of using a gas grill so I can pretty much grill any time I want. 🙂 Since today is Memorial Day I thought I’d share this neat little infographic I found over at Visual.ly on grilling as I know most aren’t looking for something serious today.
As I’ve shared numerous times, Mrs. Frugal Rules and I have completely changed how we eat this year by replacing a bunch of the junk we had been eating and replacing it with more fruits and vegetables. At first I didn’t think I could do it, but it has gone well so far and I know a big part of that is that we’re doing it together and keeping one another accountable.
That said, the one thing I have missed big time around our house is using the grill. I know there is the debate between gas and charcoal and some feel strongly about one versus the other. I don’t care which it is though, anything that is done on a grill is guaranteed to taste exponentially better than things that are not done on a grill. 🙂
Anywho…I better stop talking about grilling as my mouth is watering at the thought. The infographic below is a fun little look at some items related to grilling. The thing that stood out to me was that gas grills supposedly account for five out of six grilling related fires. I’ve been using a gas grill for years and never ran into a fire, but know it can happen. I’m also thankful we don’t live in a state that has regulations, or at least none that I know of, against grilling. I think I’d be breaking the law though if it was. 😉
That’s all I have today. As you’re enjoying the day off, give thanks to those who fought and died so we can have the freedoms that we do. Happy Memorial Day all and be safe in your celebrations!
