I know summer doesn’t officially start until June 21st, but in my world, I like to unofficially start off the season on Victoria Day weekend.
With the forecast calling for sunny skies and balmy breezes all weekend long, you can bet I’ll be spending as much of my time as possible outdoors – popping down to the neighbourhood farmers’ market (which opens again for the season tomorrow!), yanking those pesky weeds out of my garden beds, setting up the vegetable boxes and herb garden, and basking under the lilac bush in the backyard with a tall glass of iced tea and a good book.
Most importantly, though, there will be plenty of grilling… starting off with some homemade Mediterranean-style lamb burgers tonight.
And while I’m sure none of us need any encouragement to get out these and celebrate the long weekend, here are five grill-worthy pins to give you a little nudge. Now get your butt outside already!
Chili-Lime Chicken Burgers (Iowa Girl Eats)
Afghani Chicken Kebabs with Cumin Rice (My Kitchen Antics)
