I chopped the onions (they don't make me cry) and julienned the lettuce. The tacos were yummy. We had them with Heineken and akvavit (I'm Danish, what did you expect?). I won't be driving anywhere for the next few hours. Hic!

That's lousy LP. Sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope it's just a 24 hr thing. Speedy recovery wishes!

happy 30th birthday, canada!!!!

oh wait, did i blow it? are we still saying 29? well, happy 29th, again, for the first time.

we had a nice day in the poconos. did a little shopping, bought fireworks, then went to dinner at our favourite bbq joint, big daddy's bbq: Family BBQ | Big Daddy's Family BBQ

the food and service were outstanding. we started with salads with blue cheese dressing, then shared a good (but a little salty) french onion soup. for entrees, dw had the bbq half chicken, my boy had a half rack of baby backs, and i had the baby back/smoked turkey breast combo. all plates came with chunky bacon bbq backed beans, cole slaw, and a piece of corn bread.

looking forward to the leftovers and extra cornbread tomorrow.

Hope it's not too late to wish everyone a Happy Canada Day!

Today was DxW's birthday. We had a dozen or so friends and family over to help her celebrate. Back yard picnic under the shade trees with burgers on the grill, baked beans ( I made them stove top style, not wanting to heat the oven), 2 Blue berry pies, ( Ok, I did bake them yesterday, BUT THAT IS Mandatory and therefore Morally OK to heat the Oven to bake. DxW made a terrific potato salad and we had platters of veggies and finger foods too. She had a great birthday which is the Best Part of the Day.
