Saturday Night Live In Xico

We love a barbecue. Our first for the season happened on this fine Saturday afternoon in Xico. In spite of our coal starter disintegrating, we were able to fire up some charcoal, soak some Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey chips, and throw them and some Alaskan salmon on the barbie. OMG does it get any better than this?

Well perhaps. In celebration with John and Jane’s 34th anniversary and their birthdays all in one fell swoop later tonight we are off to see the master of the Jarana, Ramon Gutierrez, who will be performing at Cafe Alandalus Coatepec tonight with his group, Son de Madera.

I am taking the camera and will report tomorrow.  Thanks for the heads up Paul, wish you were going to be there. Wish you all were going to be there. Stay Tuned!

    Salmon on the grill, one of my favorite. Enjoy!

    The BBQ’s this weekend have been moved up because of the weather, but the next two days look and hopefully will be as good as they promise. The best part, I won’t have to cook, but know there will be really good food and company.

    Rain or shine a barbecue can be fun and scrumptious. OK – fess up – who does the grilling?

    Friends are this year, I have known for over twenty years, at their house and poolside, if weather permits. Smokers and BBQ’s are all in the works, and plenty of fish as well as meat. :)

    I have a pig grill in the back year I have never used. Maybe it is about time. If I could find a leg of lamb, I would be fixed to go.
