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!

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 =)

Cancun – day 4

8/17 – Today is a day of traveling. After 630 breakfast and goodbyes I am sitting at the cancun airport w my buckies…
3 days here is rather short; one extra day to go on one more excursion to chichen itza would’ve been perfect; and one extra day to just sun bath and pool lounge may just complete this trip… But I must say it will bring back many fond memories…

Cancun – day 3

8/16 – Today is DK’s wedding… we started off the day with breakfast… I like that fact it’s so chill and there’s not a lot of craziness…

The wedding ceremony was amazing and the vows were tear jerkers (never at one time were so many fluids perspired tears/sweat… classy eh? I know, I try lol)… It was so hot that ppl were literally melting, literally sweat could be wrung out)

The beach front reception was so very romantic. Something about dinning and having white xmas lights and candles just takes it up a notch!
