BBQ Blues No More…

2011.08.30 § Leave a comment

If only we had seen this beauty last weekend at our church BBQ, the boys needn’t waste so much energy to get the fire started…

By the time it was done… I believe the sun was already setting… Thank goodness for the other propane grill lol



How to light a BBQ with the Looftlighter.

Always make a pile of the coal or briquettes

· Touch the pile of coal with the Looftlighter.

· Draw back the Looftlighter a little bit when sparks appear (after 10-20 sec).

· Continue to point the Looftlighter in the same direction for at least 60 seconds.

Do you want that perfect glow in a couple of minutes? Just continue using the Looftlighter towards one (or more) points in the pile!


better end of the deal…

so chef lui tells me whoever makes it home earlier “would [insert name] please wash the dishes; otherwise there won’t be anything to eat dinner with”… the problem is that it feels like a tornado/hurricane/some mega natural disater whipped thru the kitchen, debris and DB everywhere, and no one to clean up the rotting aftermath… think new orleans

moment’s later, while still on the phone my hun tells me that he needs to go to buckies to grab coffee cuz he’s falling asleep, can’t keep his eyes open, and offers to bring me some also… awwwww…

guess who ends up home earlier? ME! … who gets stuck with dishes? ME! … who gets to clean the grimmy compost rotting in the sink? ME! … such a lucky girl …

awhile later… baby comes home, coffee in hand… and kitchen is clean… i mean SPOTLESS!

i got my iced caramel machiatto and he gets a sparkling kitchen with clean dishes…so um… who got the better end of the deal today? HIM!!!

lol… conspiracy theory i tell you…

fresh figs…

2011.08.27 § Leave a comment

fresh figs are so delish… the juicy plumpness is too luscious to squeeze… the unblemished fig feels like an miniture water balloon that gives slightly when pressed but not mushy… when cut open is brutally fragrant and bright…figs are one of the highest plant sources of calcium and fiber; full of antioxidant, flavonoids and polyphenols… nom nom nom thanks auntie =)
