Update: September 14, 2008 DH and I placed 3rd in the Rib division at Blues, Brews and BBQ in Charlotte, NC. Not bad for our 1st competition! I am so proud of DH for his grill skills and quite proud of my rib sauce! :) We both learned a lot and can't wait for the next contest! A big Shout-Out to my Cardiac Cats for the win today! GO Panthers! [img]http://dl10.glitter-graphics.net/pub/780/780920wevc3spomh.gif[/img] I'm a Georgia Peach transplanted to North Carolina who misses the best pecans, peaches and onions in the world. But, I gained the best BBQ, blue crabs and my husband(Mr. 4th of July, who still thinks all the fireworks are JUST for him! :) ). I've always wanted to cook. My earliest memory is being put into my NaNa's (very deep) sink. I was "involved" but not able to trip any of the cook's in the kitchen. ;0 My husband fell in love with my ability to cook-southern, haute cuisine (and anything in between) and on "the fly". It's not always perfect but I try. I can turn any leftover into an edible, usually very good, meal-all thanks to my grandmothers and mother's lessons. If you leave our house hungry I have failed as a host. I love to cook (of course); the Carolina Panthers, Georgia Bulldogs and Appalachain State-I am football crazy; Being on the water on our sailboat or jet skis; Eating, entertaining and wine. Some pictures from the Lake Norman Power Sports ICW trip on our Sea-Doos from Myrtle Beach to Charleston.What a great trip! I only wish I could have driven my ski and taken pictures at the same time. TS Christobal formed off the South East coast the day before we left. Going through Georgetown in 4 to 5 foot waves was a challenge, thank goodness for my Momma!
