What’s with the post title today? Actually, it is what we ate this past weekend. Our family was down at the shore in Wildwood, NJ. We went to the NJ Barbecue Championships and Anglesea Blues Festival. They had great food (if you like meat) and great blues music.
We were somewhat disappointed that you could not purchase food from the actual BBQ teams competing, however there were plenty of other good BBQ vendors there. I found out that certain state laws don’t allow the competitors to sell or even serve their food. Check out some of the ribs we had.
We also tried a brisket sandwich. The barbecue was great and I don’t want my husband’s head to get too big, but his barbecue is just as good. We have a smoker and he knows how to use it.
Now what’s with figs? Well, you know how you have those nights where you just don’t feel like eating a big dinner? It’s a hot day and nothing sounds that great. Or maybe you just don’t feel like cooking. This past weekend, I had one of those. I did have a small carton of figs which seemed appetizing. So I wrapped a few figs in prosciutto, then dipped a few others in chocolate and my dinner was ready. Forget about an entree when you can just have appetizers and dessert. Sorry, the prosciutto ones were gone before a picture was taken but I did manage to capture some chocolate covered figs. It was the perfect lazy wife’s dinner while the kids ate McDonalds!
