Real Women Can BBQ

May 26th, 2008 at 08:17 am

It’s been a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. On Saturday, I went to see a “chick-flick,” What Happens in Vegas, with two friends. It is definitely not a film my DH would have been eager to see. My friend, FE, is also an about-to-be retired school administrator, and KM has three more years to go. With our “over 55 senior discount,” we paid $6.50 to get in (regular price is $9.50). Afterwards, we went to a favorite restaurant for appetizers and a drink ($12 each). It was an inexpensive afternoon spent in the company of good friends.

On Sunday my one-and-only, wonderful sister and “best friend,” came over with her DH. They live 45 minutes away and we try to get together at least twice a month. DS and I went to the local nursery to buy plants for my patio planters. The nursery was having a Memorial Day sale, so I saved 20% on my plants.

When DS and I finished the planting project, I started up my Cobb BBQ for a healthy dinner of grilled tilapia with homemade mango salsa. Delicious! I love using my Cobb BBQ. It’s simple and inexpensive to use, all the parts go into the dishwasher for easy clean up, and it’s great for small spaces like my patio. The Cobb originated in South Africa, and I found mine online two years ago ($69). I use it all year long, even in winter (Note: it must be used outdoors!). I’ve become the gourmet BBQ chef in our family. Here is a link if you want to learn more about the Cobb:

Monday will be a working day for me…I need to catch up on paperwork. Can’t wait to retire. Only 84 more days!
