Barbecue Surprise

So, this guy buys some kind of smoker at an auction, only to find a human leg.
A man who bought a smoker Tuesday at an auction of abandoned items might have thought twice had he looked inside first.

Maiden police said the man opened up the smoker and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off 2 to 3 inches above the knee.

Now there seems to be a custody dispute over the detached appendage. The new owner had turned it over police, who then turned it over to the funeral home after finding that it was not a result of "foul play". Now there is a fight over who gets the leg back from the funeral home.

Whisnant, who put a sign on the empty smoker charging adults $3 and children $1 for a look, now wants the leg back.

"He's making a freak show out of it," Wood told The Charlotte Observer for a Monday story. "He wants to put money in his pocket with this thing."
I would have rather bought the house with $100K in the attic.

Cary's Hard Lemonade

After a day of hard day of setting up a lemonade stand, standing guard and cleaning up - it was time for a cup of lemonade that I could enjoy. I poured some leftover raspberry lemonade over some rum and was surprised with the results.

Here is the recipe for some excellent lemonade the adults can enjoy.

1/2 gallon water
1 can Frozen lemonade concentrate
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 bottle Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

Good water is an essential trick to a quality drink, make sure to use filtered or bottled water for best results.

Boil 1 cup of water, add sugar. This dissolves the sugar down to a simple syrup.
Mash the raspberries in a bowl. Strain the raspberries into a pitcher.
Add the frozen lemonade concentrate and simple syrup to the pitcher, then fill pitcher with water.
Mix well.
Fix a tumbler with ice and a shot of rum. Top off with raspberry lemonade.

The kids can enjoy a cup of "virgin" raspberry lemonade while you relax with a glass of Cary's Hard Lemonade.

Picture Slide Show from a Cook-off

Been a while since I have posted anything so I thought I would post a slide show of pictures from one of the cook-off we have done this year.
