Jackin' the Meat

Guess what? Go ahead. Guess what I did yesterday?

Ok - I'll spill.

I went out. Yep - I had plans for a Saturday night. AND it didn't include work. Woohoo.

I was lucky enough to be invited over to Contagion and Ktreva's place. Seems Contagion was in the mood to grill.

Holy Shit. He wasn't kidding. As soon as I arrived I could smell it. The most heavenly scent of slow grillin' pork. My mouth started watering......

Then, THEN he takes me out to show me the grill. If I was hungry before the sight of all that meat, slow roasting over hot coals, swimmin' in BBQ sauce - well, you tell me? Wouldn't THIS kick your appetite into over drive?

But such perfection takes time. So we waited. My mouth continually watering. Finally he steps into the living room and announces Dinner!

I hope I didn't hurt Ktreva as I pushed my way into the kitchen.....

Baked beans and potato salad accompanied the centerpiece - and it was good. It was really good. It was better than good.

And he even had a theme to the meal. Jack Daniels. (huh - Contagion planning a meal around Jack Daniels. Whoda thunk!)

Drinks? Oh yeah, we had drinks. I had the opportunity to sample his famous Jackaritas. Holy Shit. Really Good. Really REALLY good. And I'm not a Jack fan. (Oops, there goes any chance of gettin' invited back....)

Oh, and just so you know there was dessert too. But we had to wait for Clone to go to bed. It was Tipper Cake. Made with, of course, Jack Daniels. Fudgy and rich. From what I understand it consists of chocolate flavored Jack Daniels, and eggs that came from a chicken raised on Jack Daniels and then soaked in Jack Daniels for about 50 years. It was yummy. But I had to whimp out - too rich after all that yummy bbq.

As we sat and watched my Buc's suck wind in the last preseason game, Wes from Bodhran (Drum) Roll stopped by. What a wonderful way to end the evening. I hadn't seen him since Wolf Fest so it was great to catch-up.

All in all - it was the PERFECT way to spend a Saturday night.

So, what'd you do?????

Nothing as exciting as you, apparently! Had a couple of caesars with the hubby and just relaxed, and looked over some car sites/specs on the Net for my big "car-shopping" day tomorrow!

Most women don't like Jack Daniel's, so I can forgive that. I'm glad you enjoyed it, the next time I'm in a grilling mood would you like to know in advance?

Contagion? Does the sun rise in the east? (damn - I hope I got that right!) Yes Please. :-)
