  1. I have wanted to change it up with the grill because we do the same stuff over and over. I love the skillet for shrimp. I’m going to get that.

  2. These are all great ideas for Father’s Day! I think Dad needs a grilled cheese maker. (He also needs a new grill brush, but I’m not sure buying him a cleaning tool sends the right message for a Father’s Day gift. Though it is very manly looking…)
