Seafood, barbecue….it all says a Maryland weekend….

Sweet Home Alabama....

I was reading the newspaper this morning(yes, the paper kind)…and noticed that the Charlie Daniels band is playing in Havre de Grace tonight….at 8 PM!! Not that I will actually get there…that might be a little ambitious when you’re not off until 6:30….but that is just part of the festivities. This weekend is their big Havre de Grace Seafood Festival-here. It’s free, lots of crab cakes, crab fritters, crab ice cream(not really) from vendors, and artisans, entertainment…..sounds nice. They expect about 25,000 people(you could be one of them).

Get yer 'cue right here....

Or, the Bel Air Barbecue Bash 2011 sounds promising…there are four categories for the contestants…chicken, pork ribs, pork brisket, and beef brisket(yum)…..and one group will walk away with the title of pitmaster. No, you can’t eat the same barbecue submitted to the judges…but some  of them have commercial stands as well, where you’ll have your pick of chicken or pork or beef. And there’s a farmer’s market in Bel Air Saturday morning too. Nice.

Anything better on the weekend than ribs?

Or maybe we’ll do our own ribs this weekend….though something sad happened this morning(trash day). Some ribs that had been leftover from a cookout(I think 2 weeks ago) I discovered this week in an unlikely section of the refrigerator. That means they were growing some “foreign matter” on them that you would not want to ingest. But what a waste. Seriously , it made me sad. I hate wasting food.

But have a lovely weekend all….do something nice for yourself, go for a long walk, visit a barbecue bash, and don’t throw rocks…or rib bones. And come home safe, ’cause we miss you.

  1. Looks like a finger-licking good time!

  2. We went to the Bel Air Barbecue Bash and have been since the first year. We were really disappointed to find that our favorite “The Q” from Richmond,VA was not there. We just could not enjoy pulled pork from Lancaster, or Philadelphia.We ended up going to good ol Looney’s and enjoying their pulled pork, cole slaw, fries, and a couple of cold adult beverages. Plus it was air conditioned and the help is extremely friendly.
