Weber Grill Lenten Menu

Growing up Catholic, Lent was always a very important time for my family. My Grandma Rose’s faith was very important to her. She went to mass every Sunday, said the rosary every day, and did not eat meat on Fridays during Lenten season. She did eat fish though. She started and volunteered at a soup kitchen and I remember them having a fish fry every Friday to observe Lent. I really love fish so, it wasn’t a big deal when I went to visit her frequently. We were extremely close. I can see her frying up some fish for my family in her cast iron skillet. My Grandma Rose had heart problems so she would bake fish for herself. I remember how good it tasted. Good fish can be hard to find. Weber Grill has you covered for Lenten approved meals. From Grilled Fish and Chips to meatless items, you can feel good about eating at Weber Grill. I mean the Whitefish has a Parmesan crust. Anything covered in Parmesan is amazing. It’s also grilled over charcoal that gives it another layer of flavor. My Grandma Rose would have enjoyed this meal. As always Weber Grill will also have their complete menu available. Even if you don’t participate in Lenten, it’s worth checking out. It would be a great place to eat after an evening downtown. You can even get it to go. With the warm weather we have been having, it might be fun to pick it up and have a picnic by the canal.

Here’s more information from Weber Grill:

Every Friday throughout the Lenten season, Weber Grill invites those who observe the special holiday as well as Fish & Chips enthusiasts to enjoy Chef Larry Donahue’s latest ‘catch.’ Right off the restaurant’s charcoal kettles, guests can find a unique spin on the classic Fish & Chips dish featuring Planked Parmesan-Crusted Lake Superior Whitefish served with fresh-cut fried potatoes, coleslaw, and lemon aioli and malt vinegar for dipping!

Weber Grill’s complete menu will also be available, including meatless favorites such as the Blackened Tilapia Sandwich, Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad, Cedar Planked Salmon and Black Bean Burger.

Weber’s Friday Fish & Chips will be served every Friday for lunch, dinner and carryout from Friday, February 12 through Friday, March 25. Price is $20 (not including tax and gratuity). Reservations are recommended.

Protect Your Outlets with CoverPlug

When I was pregnant with Noah, I did all the typical things a mother does to prepare for a new baby. I made lists and made sure I had everything I needed for my son. Of course safety was also something that was very important to me. I bought the traditional outlet covers to protect his little fingers. I noticed that even though I had the outlet covers, Noah would still be interested in them. He never pulled one out or had a chance to thankfully. The outlet covers you can find anywhere are so hard to use. When I was using the outlets for vacuuming, it was like a war to remove them. I would have to try at least three outlets before I could find one to plug in to. I would spend more time removing them than it took to vacuum. I would lose the covers too. They were clear and we had cats and they became their newest toy even if they were on a table. I still have outlets in my house that have the covers on them, not because I think Noah will stick something in them, but because I can’t get them out. Thankfully I have multiple outlets in each room. My friend is in the process of buying a house and we were talking about how many outlets are in houses these days. He said there are five outlets in his future son’s nursery. 


There’s a company called CoverPlug that I wish I would have known about when Noah was little. They have solved the age old dilemma of how to protect outlets from children. If your child sees you remove a pronged outlet cover, they might try and do it too. I had a little trouble baby proofing when Noah was little. He figured out how to take off the things that make it difficult to open the door pretty quickly. It made me nervous because we have stairs and I didn’t want him to fall. Thankfully, he would just come in my room. The genius thing about CoverPlug is that it hides them. It’s out of sight out of mind.  You wouldn’t even know there is an outlet unless you looked closely. Even if you don’t have young kids, I think it makes your house look nicer. Outlets are ugly to look at.  You might have the extra ugly yellow outlets. You can paint your CoverPlug so it matches your wall. It’s like it doesn’t even exist. It’s faster and easier for adults to remove when they need to use the outlet.  If you have an office, CoverPlug can help you achieve a more professional look. If you have a restaurant or store, and don’t really want customers using your outlets to charge up, CoverPlug can save you money on your electric bill.  It’s really easy to notice an outlet and slip in a charger and that can be really costly for the owner. I knew someone who owned a restaurant and they couldn’t figure out why their electric bill was higher than normal. They finally realized that people were charging their phones and laptops while they were eating.  I have also noticed people charging their phones in the bathrooms of stores. If you are a small business, where every penny counts, that can really hit you hard.  Outlets can be really distracting taking away from your products and displays. 

One thing I hate is putting things together or installing stuff. CoverPlug is easy and it takes only seconds, you don’t need any tools. Just press and go! CoverPlug would be a great baby shower gift. You know they are going to have a full closet of clothes by the time of the shower. Giving CoverPlug as a gift is a unique idea. Giving a wipe warmer or another stuffed animal, will probably not be used.   Give them something they will use and that is practical. It will definitely make their life easier and protect their child from the dangers of electric outlets.  CoverPlug is extremely affordable too. They are cost effective and you will save time and your nails by using it. Take it from a mom who still has pronged outlet covers that I still can’t remove from ten years ago, CoverPlug is a must have product for everyone.

You can get a set of two CoverPlugs for $9.95 but if you order now you can get another set of 2 CoverPlugs for FREE! What a great deal!

Celebrate Valentine's Day at Weber Grill

Have you ever heard the old adage, the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach? That is definitely true for me. I love to eat. The perfect Valentine’s Day would include food. There are so many different restaurants to choose from when you are planning your special day. It can become hard to choose just one.  I love when restaurants have special promotions, it feels like I am getting an extra special treat.  I also love when restaurants have themed menus, but I also like the option of ordering off the regular menu as well. My friends at Weber Grill have cooked up some extra special menu items and even some extras to treat your sweetie. Roses are the number one gift for Valentine’s Day.  It can be hard to find fresh and beautiful roses at a store. It seems like they are always out, or the roses they have are not very attractive. They have been handled by others and sitting out. Why not let Weber Grill play florist for you. Wouldn’t it be a great surprise to see roses on the table that you can actually take home? We are all so busy so one less thing to worry about is always a good thing. While I am talking about special and romantic things, Weber Grill also has Chocolate Dipped Strawberries for dessert. I love chocolate covered strawberries and the photo makes me wish I had some right now. They look so delicious. Actually, the entire Valentine’s Day Menu makes me so hungry.  Anyone who eats there is in for a really special treat. I personally think the Surf and Turf would be the perfect Valentine’s Day meal.

Valentine’s Day Weekend Menu Specials include:

Strawberry Salad $7
Shrimp Bisque $6

Passion Fruit Glazed Salmon
Cedar planked, glazed with passion fruit infused bbq sauce
Parmesan truffle mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus  $28

Surf and Turf
7oz Filet Mignon and 6oz lobster tail
Parmesan truffle mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus $49

Grilled NY Strip Steak
14oz strip steak, grilled wild mushrooms and Demi glaze
Parmesan truffle mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus $35

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries $6

The Valentine’s Day Menu specials will be available on Friday, February 12 through Sunday, February 14 for lunch, dinner and carryout. Tableside roses will be offered Saturday and Sunday over the holiday weekend. Menu items are ala carte and range from $6-$49.  Guests can pre-order alongside their reservation a half a dozen roses for $30 with 24 hours notice. Reservations are recommended.
