Do you have any fun summer plan in the works?
We are planning to take our yearly trip to Hilton Head, SC. We love to stay on the beach and just do whatever we please with no schedule. We rent bicycles for sightseeing and chairs and an umbrella for sitting on the beach. We will also spend time with our grandsons that are visiting from Alabama and Arizona.
What do you like best about summer?
We always find a way to get away for at least a few days to rekindle our relationship as well as relax without any time constraints or business phones. And, we love to grill – even when it is steamy hot out.
What will be different this summer vs. last summer, if anything?
We never let our circumstances interfere with our time in the summer. Even if we cannot visit our favorite spot, we find somewhere to go to enjoy life.
Imagine you are having family and friends over this weekend for a get-together what would your menu consist of?
Definitely something grilled like chicken or ribs. We sometimes have steaks if it is just our immediate family. We love rice and make it in the rice cooker for a side. Maybe baked potatoes – it depends. Also, a “big” salad is a must on the menu. Our son usually brings something unique for dessert or a bread.
What’s your family’s favorite summer snack?
The heat always brings out the ice cream lovers in us. We love to make ice cream cones. We buy the large cones and pack the bottom with as much as we can fit. Then, we make double scoops for everyone. And, it has to be a flavor with lots of add ins such as nuts, chocolate, etc. The chunkier the better.
