That gives you some time to tackle some projects outside to get home ready for the changing seasons. Let’s not forget about some ways to relax on this labor day outside as well. Our friend, Kathryn Emery, home improvement & lifestyle expert has some great ideas for projects this weekend for the outside of our homes, and shows us the latest trend in grilling, Pellet Grills and how to extend the season outside.
Give The Outside of Your Home & Your Windows a Good Washing
Yes, you should give your windows and your house a good clean, so that when we do move into the rainy season, dirt and grime aren’t lingering. Forget about getting on a ladder to do this. I love ways to clean efficiently and get the job done quickly. Clean your house and also your windows by just attaching Rejuvenate Dual System House Wash & Window Cleaner to your hose.
You can easily get rid of mold and mildew on the side of the house, and then turn the nozzle and hit your windows, and great a streak free shine. Nice thing is, it’s safe for plants and grass so no worries there.
You Can Become Your Own Pool Maintenance & Save Money
Become your own pool care maintenance – with just an APP! I love technology. Clorox Pool&Spa has a great system that truly empowers you to DIY
First download the Clorox App and get the My Pool Care Assistant test strips. Then you dip the test strip in the water, scan it to your phone, and suggestions are made specifically for your pool’s needs. You click the products you need right there in the app, they show up on your doorstep, you add it in your pool and viola you are swimming.
This will actually end up saving you money too!
Pellet Grilling is the Hottest Trend in Grilling – Cook Everything In It (including Thanksgiving Turkey!)
Cook in a pellet grill. You can barbecue, smoke, roast, grill and even bake or braise in a pellet grill. You can cook everything from pancakes to ribs to cake. You can cook ANYTHING on a pellet grill, and it is easy to do it. This grill has an easy ash removal (patent pending) that makes cleaning super easy!
A pellet grill works like a convection oven. Wood pellets are poured into a storage container called a hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by an auger that is powered by electricity. Thru combustion, the wood pellets ignite, heating the cooking chamber. Air is then brought in by intake fans. Heat and smoke are then dispersed throughout the cooking area.
Pellet grills, use wood pellets, (pellets come in a variety of flavors—hickory, pecan, alder, mesquite, cherry, apple, maple) and have a digital thermostats ranging from 180°F to 500°F. You can cook “low and slow” for that smoke flavor or searing hot to get the job done.
COOK WITHOUT LEAVING THE COUCH! This Monument Grills pellet grill have a meat probe that is WI FI controlled, download the app – you insert the thermometer in the meat; it will send an alert to your phone when the meat is done, you can turn off the grill from your phone and keep your meat hot. You could literally put a brisket on when you leave for work, and like a crock pot it would be ready and warm when you get home.
A Fire Pit Can Extend Spending Time Outside In the Evenings
Invest in a fire pit, or fire feature. We all know it gets colder in the evenings in San Diego and a fire feature can extend your time outside. There are three options for you to look at, depending on your space.
First let’s start with small table top ones you can use for cooking Smores with the family, these are great because they are portable, can go anywhere, and only require a small tank of propane to operate. Next are wood burning fire pits, these have all the safety precautions built into them and are very easy to use. Next takes a little more installation, a gas powered fire pit, that usually just means installing a propane tank inside of it, but then you can turn it on anytime with the flick of a switch. Three great options to extend living outside.
