Everybody Loves Logan

My hubby and I met in 8th grade and became inseparable. We grew up in the same small town. We went to the same college. We lived together in college. We moved in together after college in “the city”. But that life wasn’t for us. So we moved back to our small town where my family lives (with my father-in-law a stones throw away).

This means that we see family constantly. It’s like an episode of “Everybody Loves Raymond” every week. When it comes to fur kid playdates, Saturday yard work and Sunday TV binges we always have my wonderful father-in-law. When it comes to random double dates, after work drinks and Sunday brunches & dinners we have my amazing parents!

We are at the point that my mom will text the hubby when she finds new food combos, they buy sesame seeds together in bulk off Amazon (then text each other hummus recipes) and we plan double dates to new restaurants in the city.

So of course we get together on the weekend to cook together! This is an Everybody Loves Logan Sunday filled with all day smokin’, good ole comfort food and my momma’s surprise side dish! We wouldn’t trade days like this for anything else in the world!

Grilled Lettuce: A Gigi Recipe (aka Olivia’s Momma)
