I don’t know where you are, but where I am, in the heart of St. Louis, it’s HOT. And yes, it requires all capitals because o.m.g.

Heat Index of 106 a couple of times last week alone. This is crazy.

By the end of the day, as evening comes, we are so sick of being cooped up inside.

We are ready to get out and spend some time in the backyard or at our local park, with family as the temperatures begin to cool and the sun goes down.

The perfect time for a cookout. We fire up that grill and eat lots, laugh lots and enjoy our time together.

  1. I love pineapple, so definitely intrigued by this! The weather here hasn’t been too cookout-like, unfortunately–lots of rain and random thunderstorms, but I’m hoping for sunshine on the weekend! That Pineapple Rum French Toast sounds amazing too!
