Back Porch BBQ


Where there's a will there's a way. You've heard that more times than I have I'm sure. Well...the weather here is so beautiful, it has that BBQ feel written all over it! But what is a missionary to do when you don't have one? Can't buy one because you can't take it with you, and your choices are few?! Well...I happened to be in one of our local grocery stores, when my eyes caught this "table top BBQ" for $5.00! Think hibachi grill, but really cheap, with coals that made it even more interesting. The coals that were affordable were "natural coals" - now remember back when after your camp fire was burned up - all the embers in the bottom of the campfire - think those all nicely packaged into a bag and sold for $1.50. Sounds like a BBQ to me! So - we managed to (after an hour and a half) grill up some fish for dinner! It was really good! Don't know that this will be a frequent event, but good to know that it's available if we want/need it :-) It's just a shame that this country doesn't have ANY good red meat ! :-(

Well, I just so happen to know a lady of a friend of an aunt of a student's mother's great uncle's cousin that can get us some good steaks. :) No really, a student was telling me of a place for good ones that you can cook up on that fancy shmancy grill of yours. remind me later!

We can't wait to BBQ with you guys. Just last night Sean grilled chicken and we talked about whether or not we would be able to do it in Costa Rica. Yummy!

Hey- gotta have one! Where did you get it?

And Price Mart sells some pretty tasty t-bones for about $6.00 for three good sized ones. We've had them twice now...
