Father's Day

I do realize it's Tuesday after Father's Day, but in the words of a friend... 'Everyday Should Be Father's Day.'  Yes, the friend is a man, but I'm going with it today because it suits my purpose.

For Father's Day this year I BBQ'd six whole chickens (yes I did it, I can be savvy that way...this is also the reason the dark meat wasn't all the way cooked on a few of them) - ok, I'll be honest...actually I did five and Lover did one.

I had to share my handiwork!

We have a 'off again/on again' tradition for Father's Day...a BBQ.  I thought it was a pretty regular thing, but when I went looking for pictures I found there was one year we went to my parents house instead of hosting and last year we flew the coop (pun intended) and were enjoying Shasta Lake and the warm California sunshine instead.

This year I don't think Shasta Lake is warm enough to thaw me out from winter or dry me up from spring so we stayed home and invited our regulars and a few newbies!

Father's Day 2011

A fine looking crew of people...we are missing seven others who had already left by this point...bellies full of smoked chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs, watermelon, & corn on the cob.  Mmm, Mmm, Mmm...

Every year we do this BBQ we take a picture.  It has been fun to look back at Father's Days past to see how the kids grow...

  3. I am always in the same spot too...

  4. Do you guys plan to be in the same spot? or is it just coincidence? ;)
