We’re turning our mundane routine into a “celebration” with some Wicked Good Grilled Chicken and weeknight grilling.

Well, summer is almost over and we’re attempting to get back into a routine.  After a time of (mostly) care-free, less strict scheduling it’s not always easy.  It’s still “grass cutting” season here in Texas and as you know my son has a lawn business.  It’s grown significantly and is keeping us pretty busy.  In early August we started school so right now this is what our days look like…

Wake up, cut grass, homeschool, eat dinner, do a few chores, go to  bed….start over.  He’s definitely getting an idea what it’s like to be an “adult”.  Not always very exciting.  

On the weekends we enjoy grilling.  A good number of years ago we decided to make the switch from a gas grill to charcoal and it’s been totally worth it!  But, let’s just be honest…it does take a good bit longer.  There’s something to be said for turning a knob and having the grill instantly ready.  My husband is the “grill master” around here and after working all day he (or anyone else) doesn’t usually have the patience or energy to wait for the charcoal grill to get ready….hence the grilling only on the weekends.

As my children have gotten older, one thing I’ve learned is to treasure even the mundane moments and try to make them joyful.  This last week I decided we’d turn a regular old weeknight into a bit of a “celebration” by grilling out some Wicked Good Grilled

Chicken.  No, we didn’t ditch work or have the day off.

I just ran to Walmart and picked up some Kingsford® Match Light® Instant Light Charcoal briquettes.  It really does cut down on the “wait time”.

It lights the first time, every time.

One “click” and the charcoal was

and ready in no time!

I prepped the chicken and prepared the rub ahead of time and we had a Weeknight BBQ “Celebration” in record time!
