The Lazy Bastards BBQ

It’s a funny thing, the internet.

It can bring the whole world to your fingertips or propel you out into the vast galaxy that is the world wide web right from your home or office and yet still feel as private as that little room in the bank where you open your safety deposit boxes. Yet the way in which people use their connections is as varied as the spices in your kitchen cabinets. So it was this weekend, where my husband’s online gaming world finally came into reality.

For a while now, my husband has been playing games online with strangers as part of what they call, a “clan.” Oh my god, how nerdy is that?

Anyway, they call themselves The Lazy Bastards and most nights, it’s where you’ll find Mr. Guilty Kitchen. I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty, if you’re interested, click the link above.

Long story short, the clan (who are from all over the world), organized a BBQ get together about 40 minutes from our house. Mr. Guilty was introduced to these forums by our dentist, Festus, and he was to be our gracious host. I was excited to be a part of this whole thing (I’m very supportive of Mr. Guilty) and agreed to share in the burden of cooking for 20+ people in someone else’s kitchen. Someone I’d never met, no less.

The day before the BBQ, as you may have read, my little angel of a son, knocked over my tripod and smashed my brand new Nikon D60 to smithereens. *sob*

But fear not, loyal readers, our gracious host, Festus, lent me a Canon Rebel E0s for the two day event and I documented everything. And here it is, although I don’t have all of the recipes yet, so please be patient while I round them up.
