Saturday Night Special

Saturday nights are for grilling burgers at our house in South La. It originated at my inlaws where they would grill burgers on Saturday nights. After a while I started doing the grilling for my wife and two children. We would often have the inlaws over for burgers, taking turns on Saturdays as to who would do the grilling. When I would grill at home, my son's friend would come over everty time I grilled. Soon more of his friends found out about how good my burgers were, the next thing you know, several of his friends and my daughters friends all wanted to know when I would be grilling burgers. They get upset when I do not grill the burgers.
