Weekend Grill Hacks

A long holiday weekend calls for some good BBQ and tasty grilled food.

The following are some grill hacks for an enjoyable, safe and yummy time:

  1. Forget using expensive cleaners to wash off your grill grate, simply cut an onion and rub across each rung. The acidity will cut though residual grease and actually leave the flavor for whatever your grilling
  2. Use your empty paper egg cartons to place your coals in for a charcoal fire, this will act as your fire starter and allows you to recycle items you would have disposed of anyway
  3. If kebabs are on the menu, soak the skewers in water for at least 15 – 30 minutes before using to avoid them getting burned on the grill and breaking off when you lift them up to eat
  4. Checking propane tank levels has never been easier, heat up some water (not boiling but warm) and run down the side of a cooled tank, then run your hand down that same side…where you feel that the tank goes from warm to cold will show you the level of propane left. Please remember to do this before turning on the tank for grilling.

Martin Luther King Day

Civil Rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal recipient, are just a few accolades received by the one and only Martin Luther King Jr. Born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, King was a Baptist minister who rose to fame as the leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King Jr. took a different approach to protest by boycotting in a non-violent manner that brought awareness to segregation laws. Most notably, Dr. King delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech to more than 200,000 people during the march on Washington on August 28, 1963.

His influence and actions helped to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1965 which prohibited racial discrimination in voting. We thank Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his positive role in changing the law for a more inclusive and better tomorrow.

In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy.

Memorial Day

Observed the last Monday in May, Memorial Day serves as a time to reflect on the brave WM-Memorial-Day_5.24.19men, women and service animals who have fought and passed while defending our country’s core values. Fighting to protect our citizen’s rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and freedom of speech, these heroic individuals made the ultimate sacrifice. While as of late Americans have celebrated this day by throwing barbeques, shopping closeout sales and traveling over long weekends, Memorial Day is meant as a time to reflect and honor members of the military who have passed while protecting us.

In honor of the fallen who have served our country!
