We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Update on Salado EggFest info

    Without @henapple and Russ, you just lost 5% of your workforce, but 90% of the work output.  Good luck with this one.  You better start moving eggs now.
  • World Cup Pick 'Em

    Today in the stands at the Germany-Portugal game my son and I were thinking that the Portugal coach's halftime speech went something like this:  "Pepe, you're an idiot.  Nobody else be an idiot.  Now that we have that out of the way let's talk strategy.  We're down 3-0 playing a man short for the rest of the game because Pepe is an idiot.  Let's just coast in the second half so we don't wear ourselves out.  There is no way we are getting any points out of this game, so we need to save our energy for the US and Ghana."
  • World Cup Pick 'Em

    My wife took this. This is the low res version so don't be too critical if it is somewhat grainy.  Our internet access is limited.  It turns out that the first row - "A" - is blocked off as it was covered with tarp. We were in row "B" - the first row but elevated about 8 feet above field level. We were straight up from the 18 yard line.  Only one goal was scored on our end but it was awesome.

    The helpless look of Sergio Ramos in this pic is just a bonus...

  • How do EggFests work?

    So you are provided the Egg you cook on? Or you bring your own egg? 
    A number of eggs are provided that have generally been pre-sold at a discount compared to retail price. They are usually larges. If you sign up as a cook you may get your own egg for the day or you may have to share. Sharing works well if you can find someone who will be cooking at roughly the same temp as it forces you to have free time, walk around and mingle. Otherwise, you may find yourself just putting your nose to the grindstone all day.
  • Feeding 18 soon-to-be BGE lovers this weekend - advice needed

    Yes.  Especially if you have generous amounts of the starches.  Have slider rolls for the pulled pork so you don't have a handful of the husbands take a disproportionate amount of it.  The big eaters will be able to go back for seconds if you keep the rolls on the small side.
