edited February 16 in EggHead Forum
Husband and wife coworkers of mine - he’s a Senior Reactor Operator and she is the station nurse - are going through some sh!tty time as she has cancer and having a rough go of it.
So I was cooking up some proteins for us and decided to double up to make some meals for them to give them a bit of a break. 
Starting off this evening with 3 yardbirds seasoned with Montreal Chicken. This will be followed by some ABTs, ribs tomorrow morning, and a brisket and pulled pork Sunday morning. All to be dropped off Sunday afternoon. 


More photos to follow as the weekend progresses.

    That is a great gesture as noted above.  Never mind how good you will appropriately feel for doing this, they will be an order of magnitude more appreciative.  Way to step up.

    "some ABTs"... *cooks enough for the whole village* 

    You're a good egg,  @CTMike. I can imagine how much they will appreciate this.

    What a great thing you did.
    They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That's against their interests. - George Carlin
