Chilebrown at home

Sunday, April 5, 2020


It was Ms. Goofy's birthday yesterday. Traditionally she gets to pick where we will celebrate with a dinner. These times are crazy and most restaurants are shut down. There are several that are struggling to stay open but can only sell food to-go. Our bbq friends Brian & Liz Silveria own a bbq supply store and catering company; 'Smoked Seduction". They are located in Livermore and are licensed caterers. They were selling bbq meals to-go this weekend. It was Ms. Goofy's birthday choice with a gentle nudge from me to venture out into the pandemic waste land we call home.

We arrived at Brian & Liz's small shop. We kept our social distance. (God I hate this new politically correct catch phrase). They have a great selection of bbq supplies and I filled up a small basket full of pecan and apple smoking woods for later cooking projects. Today we had our choice of ribs, brisket, pulled pork and sausage. We had a little of everything. It was a celebration you know.

We paid our bill and headed home. Brian & Liz are professional bbq cookers and their meats and side dishes did not disappoint. We were happy to support them in these crazy times. It was also a great meal to celebrate Ms. Goofy's Big Fat Birthday Celebration.

Looks like a fine meal to celebrate with.

Gig Dude, Ms. Goofy made her favorite pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Good times.

Happy belated birthday to the missus!

We unfortunately pulled out of the Lodi contest when it became clear I'd be ordered not to go into the office.

That seems like a loooong time ago.

Hope to see our BBQ friends soon.

Aaron, Backyard on the Grape was not cancelled but in hindsight is probably should of been. It was the beginning of the chaos. Social Distancing was only a trending 'woke'term and not the "New Normal". I wish there could be some salvage to the bbq season but I am not very positive on the outlook.
