Big Bad Wolf BBQ

When I lived in Wales, I never learned the language. Oh, I felt a little guilty about it, but really, when would I ever use it? However, I did come to know three words: Bryn Blaidd Drwg (Y and W are vowels in Welsh). It means Big Bad Wolf.
I realized today that Big Bad Wolf BBQ is only about two miles from my office, so I went over and got lunch. Carolina Pulled Pork with a Kansas City Sauce and Mac & Cheese. I brought them back to my office so I could photograph them and eat them at my desk. The pulled pork or the sauce was a little spicier than I like, but it was very good. The mac & cheese tasted like it had a few types of cheeses in it. I also got a mint-iced tea, which was very refreshing. Of course, anything's better than Southern Sweet Tea.

Wegmans Pink Grapefruit Sorbet

For me, a trip to Wegmans is a huge undertaking. It's about a 50 mile round trip, a bit much for some grocery shopping. On the occasion that I do find myself in the vicinity of Shawan Road, I try and stop in at Wegmans. There are only a few things that I get there that I can't find anywhere else, and one of them is Wegmans house brand Pink Grapefruit Sorbet.
I love pink grapefruit anything, and I've never tasted anything like this. It's got a sharp citrus taste, with little bits of grapefruit rind in it. It's light and crisp and delicious! Added to that it's fat-free, gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan.

It's also the most beautiful pale, pale pink, one of my favourite colours. I bought three pints.

Sundaes on Friday

I am president of the Pigtown Main Street board and we're doing some fun events this summer. The first event is Sundaes on Friday at the newly opened Sweet Tooth Dessert Shop in the Hollins Market area, on Friday, May 1 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Tickets are $10 each, which lets you get two (!) sundaes. Tickets for kids under 10 are $5.00. In addition to sundaes, there will be music and a 50/50 raffle. Sweet Tooth is located at 1111 Hollins Street, and there's plenty of parking available on the streets surrounding it.

All proceeds benefit the programs of Pigtown Main Street.
