Stan Fields: Miss Rhode Island, please describe your idea of a perfect date. Cheryl “Rhode Island”: That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.
I would have to admit that April 25th is a perfect date! Around this day every year, I am reminded that summer is right around the corner. It is the start of lounging by the pool, vacations, day drinking, and this day just so happens to be my best friend Penny’s birthday.
Penny is my oldest child’s (well dog’s) Godmother, so naturally Nellie wanted to wish her a happy birthday. I mentioned her in this post, but she also did this piece yesterday on Pork Roulade for Sally Spins’ first guest post. I am hoping that
her boyfriend will share some more recipes she will do another guest post in the future.
It is crazy that we have known each other since we were four.
What is even more crazy is that on Facebook when I click to view our friendship, this is the picture that shows up.
Facebook, why did you choose this ridiculous photo of us when there are so many better options? Do you think there is someone on the Facebook staff that manually picks which picture to have for the friendship page? “Oh yeah, that is definitely the worst picture of those two. Let’s use that one.” Gross!
What’s not gross is what I made Chris for dinner.
Mango Barbeque Chicken Meatballs
½ cup barbeque sauce
½ cup mango jam
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
½ package chicken meatballs
1. Over low heat combine barbeque, jam, and Sriracha.
2. Stir in chicken meatballs and continue cooking until they are heated.
This sauce leaves you smacking your lips with sweetness and your tongue tingling with heat. The addition of jam and Sriracha do wonders for the barbeque sauce.
Plopping a few of these onto a bun turns this blissful appetizer into a nice little meal.
Nothing says summer like barbeque!
What is your idea of a perfect date?
