Grilled Turkey :: Beer Wed Group

In between oodles of caramel making, wrapping and shipping, I try to find time to spend with those I love! Specifically, our Beer Wed Group! This is exactly what it sounds like. A group, that meets on Wednesdays to drink beer.

Sure, we could have thought of a more catchy "name" for our group, but honestly, let's call it what it is. Keep it simple.

This past weekend, my husband and I were trying some new recipes including a grilled turkey! Think of a cross between a smoked turkey and a roasted turkey. And yes, the skin was delicious! Ladies, keeps the men busy and out of your kitchen. {Just saying...}

Of course, if you cook a turkey, I feel like it calls for a party. Most days we're not as fancy as Ina Garten....Perhaps there aren't flowers, place mats or even chairs for that matter. But we gather to drink, eat and be merry. I truly couldn't ask for better friends {really family} to share our joys and life challenges with.

Vacation and Hurricane Sandy...

We won't talk about my absence from blogging b/c let's be honest I'm busy here! Amidst the crazy fall schedule and exciting press coverage, this Caramel Girl is heading to London.... That is if Hurricane Sandy doesn't give me a big fat rainy detour or delay!

Seriously...of all weeks to come up the coast. lol
Why London? Once upon a time, this Carameltier traveled to Finland to study abroad {circa 1999-I'm old}. Seriously, how many people do you know that studied in Finland! I met some crazy people, including a great British gal named S. We bonded over late night trips to the Grilli {think french fries at 5am after clubbing all night}, pancake parties and banana bread. So with Mom as a perfect travel companion {her first abroad trip} I'm headed across the big pond for an a bit of an adventure together!

Stay tuned as I post more about the food {of course}, traveling abroad with my mama and how Hurricane Sandy gives us a gentle send off...

Until next time,

Your traveling Carameltier
