OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet you thought it would be a real memorial. I bet you thought I was gone forever. A faint memory in the sea of deliciousness...a lingering taste in your mouth from the last bite...mere steam rising from a, oh I don't know, soup tureen, I guess.
Well, stand corrected, jerks! 'Tis a memorial no more! I am back, and so much better than ever. After Thanksgiving, I went into hiding. You see, Thanksgiving 2006 was somewhat disappointing; while the appetizers varied slightly from years past, the entrees were nothing new, nothing special. In fact, I could have listed the main courses before I even saw them. Same old, same old. Every year, its the same old.
I thought I had lost my taste for life, my flavor for food, my passion for passionfruit. I needed a boost, my friends, a pick-me-up like none other. and finally, that boost happened. I attended a Memorial Day Barbecue.As I have learned, the term "barbecue" varies greatly dependent on one's location. Some call it a Barbecue. Some call it a grill out. Some say BBQ. Some simply prefer "sausage fest." whatever your personal opinion, its all pretty much the same. delicious food at a delicious price. free!
And so, my friends, I welcome you back to my life of deliciousness, my impeccably beautiful pictures and descriptions, my food-inspired heaven. while i believe this unbelievable phenomenon should probably be v.i.p. members/by invite only, I guess I'll make a few exceptions. this time. next time, though, watch out. You better impress me.
And that, my friends, takes a lot of moxy. Or, you know, a lot of sausage.
