Thrifty Sister Newsletter Vol 6, Issue 25 – April 27, 2014

Greetings, Thrifty Sisters! My goodness, I can’t believe how April is quickly coming to a close and we are ready to welcome in May this week! I certainly hope that April was a wonderful month to see and gather with friends and family.

Speaking of gathering with friends and family, it is almost full blown BBQ season time! Many of you outside of my neighborhood may have already been enjoying BBQ weather and are in full grilling mode! We, in South Dakota, are hoping that the winds will stop gusting at 50 mph sometime. I am very weary of the wind, as of late. Although, we do have the loveliest natural “wind blown” looks!

In preparation for Grilling Season, allow me share some grilling web sites. May the web sites either remind you of fantastic tricks from what seems like long ago grilling seasons, or give you some new ideas to try out!

To help make the grilling a complete family success – think about your audience. Will you have older individuals at your table? This article really made me think about how to accommodate all of our family members with more ease.

Of course, I always enjoy knowing what NOT to do! Why not add a list of Do’s and Don’ts for your backyard barbequing. (There are also some nifty article links found at the bottom of the page!)

Whether you are a fan of charcoal, gas, electric or wood grilling, may you enjoy your upcoming grilling season. Keep a watchful eye on fire bans and be mindful of your fires. Remember, Smokey the Bear always told us “Only You can prevent forest fires”. (In my neighborhood, it would be prairie grass fires.)

Do you have a BBQ trick that you want to share with everyone! Feel free to share with me! Also, I am still waiting to hear some undisclosed method on how to keep my carpeted steps clean!

And with that, my Thrifty Sisters, may you enjoy the last days of April and welcome in May. Happy May Day on Thursday! And as always, keep on keepin’ it thrifty and fun!
