Project Parlor BBQ Competition_Final Round

16 enter, only 1 can leave… with a gigantic trophy!

Though our final competition backed out at the last minute making our victory a little less sweet (WTF people! anyone ever teach you to finish what you start? Its more satisfying if I can beat you fair and square)…  we still showed up to the party with loads of food… Cajun inspired food:

the start of the Jambalaya
the process to carrot souffle (which several people told me tasted like Fruit Loops….uhhh, yeah its probably all that sugar that makes it taste like childhood breakfast)
you gotta throw in some okra
mixin the whiskey sauce while the bread puddin is cookin
olive tapenade for the meatless muffaletta (sub roasted red peppers and artichokes and/or eggplant for the itallian deli meats)
light it up
smoked sausage and cajun chicken awaiting their fate to become Po Boys
the sun sets on the chicken and red beans n rice as the smell of Louisiana wafts thru the evening breeze

We win with pure enthusiasm and dedication!

team Wildcard celebrates with what else…. whiskey shots… lovin my babies: you guys rock!
and one giant trophy to take home “Project Parlor Summer BBQ Championship Series: Grillmaster Champ 2011”


Here’s to good food and good friends.  LOVE YOU!

BBQ Competition_Final Four

For those of you who couldn’t make it out for Sunday’s Final Four victory… here’s what you missed:

Come one, come all!! Team Wild Card is back for a third helping of massive amounts of meat with an extra serving of delicious. This Sunday’s Carnivorous Carnival will showcase… you guessed it: everything on a stick! Bite-sized sideshows to include shockingly sadistic skewed flesh and a slew of slutty veggie vignettes. Join us under the Big Top and delight in wonder as this team attempts to razzle dazzle your taste buds.  Brought to you by the twisted trio: the Freakmaster, the Cougar Tamer, and the Strongman; this team of High Class Trash is ready to serve you right… in the mouth.

this hunk of meat to be... chimichurri beef skewers

rosemary lemon chicken skewers

shrimp wraped bacon with spicy BBQ sauce... a couple have gone missing from this stick... yeah, they're in my mouth

sweet chili thai sauce for the tofu

rosemary red 'potato salad' on a stick

wasabi potato salad dressing

drunken fruit skewers... soaked in malibu rum (shout out to my high school girlfriends!)

caprese salad on a stick

caramel-henge prep station

welcome to the land of caramel apples

though they melted a bit... they were still delicious... and fun

We had a blast! We’re gonna bring it ONE MORE TIME this Sunday at Project Parlor from 2ish pm to 9pm.  This week Cajun food! Oh, yeah!

button, button… who’s got the button

Every now and again I get a hankering for some ink.  One of my rommies had the same craving.  It was inevitable that we ended up in the local tattoo shop about a week ago.  Here’s my new skin:

button sketches… yes, mom, I thought about if for a few minutes before permanently marking my skin.

and a live reference to help the in artist get into the groove

biggie supervises

All buttoned up and beautiful.

Here’s to all the people in my life that hold me together…. sometimes literally 🙂

this one’s for you
