Last Saturday, I received a call from a friend saying that they were having a barbeque. But the couple that they had invited had backed out. I told him, I would think about it. Second choice? Me? But then he sent a picture of some meat smoking on his smoker. Does he know me, or what? So, yep. We went. Second choice and all.
His set up. Very nice.
His fire pit, which I promptly declared I needed in my yard.

The whole meal was fabulous. For appetizers, we had smoked chicken wings and pork sliders. Then Connie served a fabulous wilted bacon salad, which made me think that, really, I should dress all of my salads with bacon grease. Followed by the highlight of the dinner which was this smoked meatloaf. Smoked meat loaf!!! Why had I never thought of that!!
Then as if that wasn’t enough, Connie served dessert. Brownies. Love brownies, so simple and so good, but made totally over the top by the fact that they served them with a glass of this raspberry wine. It was perfect. A bite of brownie + a sip of wine = chocolate raspberry heaven.
Thank you Connie and Dan for a fabulous evening!!! We were on our best behavior, so next time, we might even be first choice!
