BBQing In January

Cynthia

Yes, I know.  You are probably thinking, “Why would anybody be bbqing in January?”  Specially when we live on the east coast, but on my defense I’d like to say and point out that Cynthia offered to bbq, and I accepted her offer.  The day was very sunny, but cold and there were two sous chefs on hand to help her.

As you can see, Alex was a reluctant sous chef, but she did try to help.  She gets cold very easy so she started to shiver and went to the area where she could get a bit of sun, but it did not help so I opened the sliding door to see if she would go inside and warm up a bit.

Roxy, unlike Alex, was quite a cooperative sous chef and took it upon herself to patrol our deck to make sure that no human or animal would get close to us, but most importantly to the food.

Even though the sliding door was wide open, Alex decided to stay outside with us so I had to call her inside, along with Roxy, because it was pretty cold.  Can you see Alex’s relief face?  Anyway, we had a delicious meal, but I think I’ll wait until the weather gets a bit warm before going outside to bbq.  Although, the one that bbqs is Cynthia, but her sous chefs are usually right behind her and if you have dogs you know that they want to be wherever you are even if that means being in discomfort.  Enjoy the beginning of this week with all your loved ones.
