    BBQ season coming up soon (funny)

    BBQ RULES
    We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity . When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

    Routine...
    (1) The woman buys the food.
    (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
    (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.
    (4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

    Here comes the important part:
    (5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

    More routine....
    (6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
    (7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat

    Important again:
    (8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

    More routine...
    (9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
    (10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

    And most important of all:
    (11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
    (12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ' her night off ' and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women!

    Oh it definitely is the truth.

    But I get a kick out of seeing him so happy that he cooked something well (he - genuinely - has low self-confidence with cooking, which I'm working on changing over time...)

    But oh yeah I hear ya!!
    Quilting is my vice



    Live well, laugh often, love much

    Lol funny!

    We don't BBQ, we smoke, and there's quite a bit more effort that goes into smoking. I gladly turn the duties over to my husband, who will put the meat on the smoker at midnight and get up at 6 am to check it.

    That's a hoot. We have a grill on the back deck. My husband will not bbq. I've used it a few times but now it just sits there. I may make a planter out of it.
