I hope everyone had a safe and festive Fourth of July! Laura, Zeus, Thor, and I stayed indoors, relaxing, watching marathons of "Cops" and "King of the Hill," snacking on chips and salsa, and sipping Jose Cuervo margaritas. It was wonderfully restorative and peaceful. For dinner, we had grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts and grilled corn on the cob. Laura rubbed the chicken breasts with Red Monkey Barbecue Spice Rub and grilled them perfectly. She pre-cooked the corn in the microwave for five minutes then charred on the grill. It was a delightful meal. The Red Monkey spices are incredibly delicious!
