I just finished making 20 chicken veggie skewers for Chunky and Ruth's bbq this aft - almost time to walk across the road to Coral Bay better go get ready.

Was not planning on taking pictures today but then I remembered ribs + skewers + good friends = fun pics - it's the new math ha ha.

Ruthie's homemade salsa - has corn and beans in it

Boys talking bbq

Chunky showing is his chimney starter - a great way to light bbq

Watching water action

No lighter fluid with chimney starter - just a vegetable oil soaked paper towel

Presto hot coals


Checking the heat on the grill

Skewers first

Dick snapping picture

Yum - Lisette's mango tango sauce was great marinade

Almost time to pig out

Chunky and his coveted find on the island - hickory bits at a reasonable price

MMM ribs

Paul Dick and Carole discussing the bathroom scale

Garlic bread

Delicious spread

I just weighed in at 130 lbs on Ruthie's scale am up 9 lbs ha ha

Paul was 10 lbs lighter than he thought

Who could say no to dessert

Can you hear it in the distance? That is the sound of CBT crying out loud!

You are not alone CBT, there are others crying just as hard (with their tummies rumbling). Quite noisy to say the least. :)

Ruthie said...

Yes, don't come down here enough. We had to recruit poor TG to grill duty!

Yup Tim that is what he puts in the chimney starter instead of news paper to get the coals hot

Ha Ha Gail I can just imagine how you will be able to rub it in when you are on your cruise and eating all that yummy stuff we can't get here

Too funny Ruthie I do no think CBT is out of a job any time soon

I'm hijacking this post for Belizesnowbird...I can't compete with the pix.

Yes, Tacogirl, I am sure the meals on the cruise will be out of this world, not to mention those in Singapore and Dubai... not going near a scale for 6 weeks at least. :)
