  1. OH. MY. GOD. I so do wish I was your friend right now. But tonight we did a mongrel grilling (BYOM-bring your own meat) and we had marinated tri-trip, BBQ chicken, jalapeno/pepper jack chicken sausages, burgers, and hot brats along with roasted yukon golds, chicken and cheese stuffed baby peppers, corn on the cob and berry buttermilk cake with homemade vanilla bean lemon cheesecake ice cream. Not bad for pulling it together at 2 this afternoon, huh? Oh yeah, all done POOLSIDE in my backyard.

  2. Yes, I wish I were your friend. And Amy’s friend. Why do MY friends suck so tremendously? Not a single one of them has ever mentioned bourbon pastry cream. I have to make some calls.

  3. Was going to grill burgers and brats today, but it rained all fucking day. We’re about into ark territory here. Hopefully it will clear up enough tomorrow for us to grill the wild turkey breasts, which are currently marinating in molasses/tamarind/other stuff marinade. And I’m going to grill squash and apples and cook a barley pilaf and make a cheesecake.

    Still think I’d rather be at Michelle’s.

  4. East Carolina smoked pulled chicken? Any flavors of the beach in there? I’m on my way to work, after reading your posts my fruit salad is not going to cut it. I have a hankering for Corolla Light BBQ. Damn you!

  5. Your hair looks really good today, and that shirt, it makes you look like a size 2 or something.

    Is that a good enough compliment to be your friend? Because, you’re right, I really want to be your friend right now.

    It doesn’t matter. Ohio is too far away. I’ll have to fall back on my husband grilling me bratwurst tonight.

  6. I’ll give you my address if you need someplace to get rid of leftovers… reading that menu actually HURT! cruel, cruel taunt.
    Hotdogs, I had hotdogs.
    I know, I am not worthy.

  7. When all your current friends die of heart attacks because of the mountains of goodness you’re getting ready to serve, I’m all about stepping up and gracing you with my friendship. I’ll bring cake. Everyone likes cake.

  8. My husband wants you to adopt him. So does my son. I just want to roll around naked in the pulled pork. We had an amazingly great time with you and yours yesterday – thank you times one million.

    I am still full.
