Hello M:R Nation –
It’s March 10th and I think its safe to say that winter is behind us… Looking at the forecast, all I see are temperatures well above freezing and a little rain. However, I am VERY cautious when approaching this subject as we are located in the midwest and if you have ever lived or visited here around this time year, you know exactly how bipolar our weather can be.
Throwing caution to the wind, yesterday I decided to test our fate as a region and turn on the grill for the first time this year. I know, what better way to jinx myself than prematurely taking part in Americas favorite pastime? Let me tell you, even if we do incur another 2 weeks of winter because of my decision yesterday, it was worth it. You never realize how depressing wirer was until you have had your first grilled steak of the season. Instantly, the cold and bitterness of winter leave your body and you can once again enjoy your life!
Now I’m not saying winter is all that bad, but you truly forget what the other 3 seasons have to offer when cooped up inside for 3 months. If you are still feeling winters funk, I implore you to give grilling a try. It just might be the medicine you are looking for!
How about a little contest? I want to see your grilling skills and if you just so happen to have a broken device, this contest will benefit you greatly!
For the next week, I will be accepting pictures of your “Spring awakening”. It can be a steak, eggplant or a shoe for that matter. That’s right, even vegetarians need some hope that winter is over. For every entry, I will be sending a 10% coupon to apply to your order. The person with the most mouth watering picture will receive an extra 20% off of their order in a form of a coupon code or refund on their account!
You read that right, up to 30% off your entire order for the winner! To place your entry, send your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and receive your coupon code instantly. I will be emailing the winner of the additional 20% directly. So here is to happy grilling and saving some cash at the same time!
