It has been a very busy few weeks. Starting the week before Labor Day and going until this past Sunday. Our annual Labor Day Cricket Tournament was a hit as usual, of course to make it a hit, it takes a lot of work and love. You have to love doing this as no sane person will give up their long holiday weekend to clean 500 pounds of chicken, make a hundred trips back and forth from your house to the park all while the roads are still undergoing construction, standing in 90 degree weather cooking over a hot stove! I did say you have to love doing these things.
However, it was a labor of love as we like to think of it. We had the best jerk chicken, thanks to a cool guys Smoker…we had curry chicken, stew chicken, curry lamb, stew goat, fried rice, beans and rice, lots of salads and of course monster cookies! We cooked for about 200 people who we sure hope loved and appreciated the food. We sure did!
After the Labor day weekend I shuttled off to Toronto for a wedding, where I had a blast! Unforgettable weekend, especially eating doubles and roti with curry chicken! Delish. Next stop will be North Carolina and then off to Trinidad…cannot wait.
Okay after all this talking I must at least mention a recipe that I made the Thursday night for dinner for all the folks that came to help with the 500 pounds of chicken…well I should mention that we call that night the Chicken Clean Party! Yes I said party!
Oven roasted Brussel sprouts with baby potatoes and bacon…you cannot go wrong especially with bacon!
