Those Brats

by zydecopaws on April 24, 2009


Not the kids, the sausages…  If you think this meal looks like Tuesday’s, you aren’t far from the mark.  But the sausages are brats, and the potatoes turned into beans…

On the grill:

  • Johnsonville Brats with Onions & Peppers
  • Bush’s Grillin’ Beans

Apparently today is National Pigs-in-a-blanket Day.  This led to a conversation with the wife last night and a trip (by her) to Costco for some Johnson Brats.  And no, I have no idea what brats have to do with pigs-in-a-blanket, and there is no pancake batter being prepared tonight.  At any rate, the Weber OTG was rolled out again.  The brats went on the grill with the onions, peppers, and beans, and shortly thereafter we were eating.  There is something to be said for an easy meal on a Friday night after a trying week…

No rain today, and the forecast for the weekend is more of the same.  Looks like the smoker will be in action again…

Update: Coach’s Oats pancake batter was found on the following morning and put into play.  The leftover brats were excellent wrapped in pancakes and covered in applesauce or maple syrup.  No one was brave enough to cover them in both…
