I has BBQ!!! I bought it the other day, but tonight is the first time it's been 'fired' up! About 10 more minutes of the coals heating up and I'll be putting some spicy ribs on the grill! Can't wait! And, no lighter fluid poison is being used. Electric lighter like we had when I was a kid. I was stupid and sold the old one (which still worked at 40+ years old!!!) a few years ago, thinking I would never get a barbecue ... luckily, they still make them and it looks identical to the old one!
OMG! This was sooooo good. And, soooo juicy & tender!
I always had an aversion to BBQ'd meats growing up. Everyone I knew made them so messy and slathered them with sauce. I hated it. But this! We will be barbecuing often. Lots of experimenting to do! Mmm.

Dinner - June 2, 2013

We decided to have breakfast for dinner. And, it was so good!
There was enough flour left in the bag of Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix for 4 gluten-free pancakes. So we each had 2. My mom added pine nuts to the batter. Loved that little bit of crunch. Topped with lots of butter and maple syrup!
I made this to go with the pancakes - Maple Chili Bacon SOOOOO good!
The butter melted far too quickly to get a good picture!
And, of course, a glass of raw milk!
