Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
We’re celebrating with a weekend of grilling and smoking. I guess I should clarify that smoking around this house means some type of food in the smoker 🙂 We took our tailgate grill that attaches to our tow hitch to my parent’s house yesterday and grilled burgers and dogs. Today, we got a new grill for our back deck!
I’m so excited about our new grill. We ran a natural gas line to the back deck a few years ago when we installed a gas range in our kitchen, but we just capped it off because we already had a propane grill. Our old grill was a relative inexpensive one we got 8 years ago and it got heavy use so it was time for a replacement. We decided to “upgrade” to a Weber natural gas grill and splurged for the griddle accessory as well. It did take my husband multiple trips to Lowes to get all the right pieces to connect it to the gas line, but thankfully we live close by :). Tomorrow we’re smoking some ribs and chicken legs and having friends over for dinner.
Well today’s Sun Dried Tomato and Gorgonzola dip doesn’t involve a grill, but it is good and you can bet that I will have some dips coming up for you this summer that make use of the grill! If you love sun dried tomatoes and gorgonzola cheese then you’ll want to dive right into this dip!
The sweetness from the sun dried tomatoes helps to balance out the tangy crumbles of gorgonzola in this creamy and easy dip recipe. It’s a really awesome flavor combination and I love the specks of orange, red, and green color in this dip. Serve with your favorite flavor of Food Should Taste Good chips or crackers.
And here’s to the unofficial kickoff of summer and all of that great summertime food!
