Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Having a Woodford and Camacho. Took Baby Girl to college today. Not sad but celebrating. She's strong, has great faith, a leader, beautiful, a people person,... Everything I hoped to have in a daughter and friend. I'm so damn proud. I have made it a point to be close to my kids. I want them to have everything I didn't.

On a side note. Her dorm is two blocks from my favorite cigar bar. Yipee. @hapster... Pm me your address at home or office... I'll send you a surprise.

    Mine has graduated and is moving to Seattle (sniff) for her second stint with Americorp. She's everthing you'd ever want in a daughter.

    Screw you guys. Now I have to think about this for the next 18 years with 18 month old and newborn daughters. I'm going to cry in my drink every night like a damn country song.
  • henapplehenapple Posts: 14,663
    UTC... @ Eggcelsior... Enjoy each stage, grade, struggle, victory... I swear you'll turn around and it's there. Thanks for all the comments. I'm building some things for her form I wasn't happy with. Will go back this weekend. @hapster... Will get it then.

  • My son got his driver's license today. He's taking off in a few to hang with some buddies in his new (to him) car. I was at my buddy's house today who just had twins 2 weeks ago. They are tiny! man, seems like yesterday mine were tiny and incapable of taking care of themselves. Now they are huge and incapable of taking care of themselves :))

    on the 28th of this month we get to  go to my twin daughters school to meet their teacher...  pre-school that is :)) ...  right now 1 is just about fully potty trained and the other- well hopefully she wont have to take a poop at school or it will get ugly fast... I am already imagining the phone call now."Mr. P., your daughter is screaming and crying for a pull up, I thought you said she was pottytrained?!"

    oh where has the time gone already...  and to think my son will turn 1 in about 3 weeks.

    =))

    Bud not sure if you read my entire comments. The first part was just a poke at CT... Go back and read all of it.

    He was kidding but had a few too many pops and it came off wrong. He's had a very tough week.  I talked to him off line and he's all good.

    @ henapple I'm sorry but the first time that I read it it came off differn"t. Carry on oh O.O. pusher. I don't like P.B.R. but I'll have another Sam Adams with you my friend. ^:)^

  • Congrats @henapple. IMO, there's no better feeling in the world, as a parent, than seeing your kids grow up to be the adults you wanted them to be.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
