Grilling w charcoal!

So I bought a charcoal grill used off a website, I think for a good deal. It's a red mini one (weber). Well I have never used a charcoal grill. I asked Kasey what I needed and off I went to the store to collect the things I needed. I marinaded the chicken breast in teriyaki sauce for a few days. I hadn't intended to marinade it for a few days, but things came up and we hadn't made it to the store yet. So I watched a YouTube video on how you use a charcoal grill, lol. YouTube, it's my go to when I don't know how to do something and Kasey wasn't available. I used lighter fluid on the coals. it took me a little bit to get the coals all lite.
I felt pretty impressed. 
 I was having a little bit of a struggle but than I got. Just throw on my lighter fluid, pow! lol. Well once the coals were all heated I threw on the chicken. 
Lookin pretty good!

Well it's all done. It looks yum and taste yum. It's what's for dinner.

First time making cinnamon rolls

Ok so I had pinned this recipe from this blog a long time ago. I got this huge craving for cinnamon rolls. I decided ok I am going to make this for our FHE treat. I started at 4:45 the same time I was making dinner. After the dough rise, I punched it down and rolled it out. During this part I had a little helper standing on a chair right in front of my dough. First she put her hand print in it and than she kept grabbing and pulling off pieces of it on the side. I wish I had a pic of her but my phone was charging upstairs and I had butter all over my hands. I don't want to tell you how long it took me to make in between trying to meet the needs of my toddler feeding us dinner etc. Kasey went to bed but I waited for them to cool and put the second layer of frosting on. Here is the blog post I got the recipe from.
Here are my pics.

Oh my it was so good but way rich, don't eat the whole thing like I did. Okay now I am on a diet and can't eat anymore. It was a fun experience and fun to be patient or more like work as fast as I could before my child destroyed it, lol.
