I've started a tradition of making some type of beef for Chris on Fridays. Its something to get him through the week at work, and something to make sure I don't lose my meat-cooking skills should I ever need them. We've dubbed it "Steak Fridays".
Today I bought a decent tri-tip from Trader Joe's and covered it with minced garlic, fresh rosemary, sea salt, cracked pepper, and olive oil. I opened the propane valve, depressed the safety button, and had my finger poised on the lighter button when a bit of movement caught my eye on the far side of the BBQ:
Chris was playing video games with his friends. They were all in favor of lighting it up with the mouse inside, as long as I named him Mickey first. I opted to take pictures instead. And they all got a kick out of Chris giving them the play-by-play as I jostled the BBQ around trying to get a better picture of Mickey.
He's probably still out there...
