Sippin’ on gin and juice… laid back

Yesterday was a great day. Just one of those days where everything comes together and you get stuff done! Not only was I super productive at work, but I also managed to get a bunch of stuff done around the house and cook an awesome dinner.

Last night’s menu consisted of grilled cajun catfish with a side of grilled potatoes and onions and an awesome salad. I’m not usually a huge fan of catfish but figured we’d give it a go on the BBQ, because what isn’t awesome on the BBQ? By the time we ate the sun was down, but I did manage to snap a shot of the salad and the delicious cocktail I made. Apparently gin and lemonade is an excellent combo and I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new summer drink.
