I'm so ready for summer and cooking out in the backyard. The weather here keeps teasing me, warm one day, cold and rainy the next. It's supposed to be in the 80`s and sunny here this weekend, so I think we'll have to fire up the grill!
We had pork loin on the grill with Carolina barbecue sauce a few weeks ago that was fabulous!
I thought I'd share a few summer barbecue recipes and links today, for your afternoon reading:

I love outdoor living spaces. To me that is what having a garden is all about, being able to go outside and feel right at home. Yard Envy has some really great outdoor furniture and garden decor to help decorate your outdoor space.
I've always wanted a hammock for my outdoor space. I may have to get one this summer. I think I could see one of Yard Envy's fabric hammocks hanging from the two big trees in my front yard.
Have a great weekend!

There's an interesting new way to shop for home and garden supplies online. It's a new website called ShopWiki.com. It's a great shopping resource because it isn't just paid advertisements. The site has its own web crawlers (similar to how search engines find sites), constantly crawling the web to find the best home and garden shopping sites out there.
This is the time of the year when I'm on the prowl for new lawn and garden tools, and equipment. I was browsing for a new garden composter, and I found an excellent selection at ShopWiki. It only takes a couple seconds to receive your results. It's a very easy site to use.
