Wednesday BBQ’s

For the past three Wednesdays in a row, Bee and I have been grilling for dinner.  This, of course, now means Wednesday = BBQ Night.  We’ve been preparing a lot of food, which is great for leftovers.  Last night’s menu was jalapeno cornbread, coleslaw, salad with homemade basil dressing, grilled corn, grilled purple peppers, baked beans stewed on the grill, and BBQ tofu. Oh, and of course s’mores.  It’s fun.  We sit outside with a beer, putz around in the yard, and eat until we’re stuffed.  I didn’t take photos last night, but here is last week’s BBQ:

Perhaps most significantly, we finally did cut and eat the lettuce we had grown in the yard, as well as a couple little yellow cherry tomatoes:

I should note that we are not the only ones interested in eating from our garden.  This one cracked me up, as devistated as I was to lose the tomato:

OK, so what else did we have?

Oh!  And we had more food!

Beans, which I didn’t take a photo of because I was stuffing my face, and of course grilled tofu slathered with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce:

And of course, no BBQ is complete without roasting marshmallows over the coals and making s’mores:

Cheers to Wednesday night BBQ!

    Grilled tofu with sweet baby rays, we are going to try that for sure.
    And ever since we stayed at your house and had yummy s’mores, I can’t seem to stop craving them.
