It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page
for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day
is National Bacon Day
and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
An HEB Cinco. Sorry incomplete pics
Well we were supposed to go to family for celebrating Cinco, but when the kids got sick, plans changed... Run to HEB, get tortillas, some small sweet peppers, pre-marinated skirt steak, and boneless chicken thighs, sweet onions, new CI pan to cook the onions in (stupid movers lost that too!) and of course Mojito mix..... ???? well SWMBO'd wanted mojitos made with the mint from her garden, who am I to argue?
We also made Broccoli slaw as per a receipe we had at the texas eggfest. I'm not sure what that had to do with Cinco de Mayo either.
OK, it was just a a Sunday dinner.
The Mrs, cooked up the onions in a hastily treated new 12" Lodge CI pan (we had bacon with breakfast) inside, while I had the peppers grilling, then the meat. Peppers HAD to be cooked separate due to a guest's concern.
One thing I will say is that I am NOT a fan of Stubbs lump. That thing was like the 4th of July when I turned up the heat in the egg.
Sorry, this is all I have with the pics. impatient guests prevented some plating pics. I really wish I had some of the onions. SWMBO did a fantastic job with them.

All to get cheaper brisket!
