Good Food, Good Company

…not necessarily in that order…

Yesterday, our good friend Jon came over for some BBQ. He and Mike were going to try to get the swing concreted in (MAN does it seem like it’s going to tip over when the kids swing ‘energetically’!), but with the rain in the forecast, they decided to bag that and just BBQ instead. (They chose wisely – the minute Mike stepped in with the food, it started to pour – so not only did they save the concrete, but they started BBQ’ing earlier so Mike didn’t get stuck cooking in the rain again.)

What did we have, you ask? Even with only *ONE* guest, Mike goes all out: Steak, kielbasa, ribs, green beans, onions, and potatoes. See?

I’m going to give away one of Mike secrets. Penzey’s spices. MAN oh MAN – once you use these, you will NEVER go back to regular ol’ store bought spices.

Oh, and I’m happy to report that even though Jon was here, my towel tags are still attached.

Commenting on Comments: *phew* threeundertwo is okay with me blatantly stealing her idea…and you make great points about building the blogging community.

I Was Carded!: Glad we saved you a stop, Jon. πŸ™‚

Yucky Nose: Boogie art. Lovely πŸ˜› threeundertwo, Are you the one who posted about that a little while ago? And you were nice enough to NOT include a picture πŸ˜‰ But Heather, it WAS my shirt! Uhg…dragging his nose down the *wall*?? Bia, let’s hope that doesn’t happen here! LOL Yup, grannyfrani, I’m *sure* this all comes from Mike’s side of the family…we would *never* do anything disgusting on OUR side πŸ˜‰

  1. Darn it! I knew I forgot something when I was there, I’ll get you next time towels. ;D

  2. Sounds like some good food was cooked by your hubby!! And I LOVE Penzey’s – I’ve been ordering from them for a couple of years now. Have you tried the Apple Pie Spice that they sell? If not, it is a must – I use it for all my muffins and it is great in Banana bread!!

  3. Don’t you love friends who are okay with shirking work and EATING instead? THOSE are the fun people.
