A week ago, Scott Babe had a sad face on as he was paging through the latest issues of Food & Wine and Bon Appetit. Because we live in a condo, we can't grill. The closest we come is with our grill pan and make-shift exhaust system blowing out onto our fire escape. I want to keep my man happy so I shot Colleen an email the next morning:
Me: Are you home on 4th of July? And u have a grill, right ?!
Colleen: Umm yeah hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha :)
I had new issues of food & wine and BA on table and they all have grill food covers - Scott got sad that we can't grill. Can we come over and grill for us and u and Olga?!
Colleen: &*@! YES
Our 4th of July in Jersey City:
Colleen & Olga named their stray cat, "Bruce" before learning that it was a she and carrying babies. (She got fixed after giving birth)
Mommy Bruce and Skinny Boy -- sister Chubs was too shy for a Kodak moment
(Skinny Boy is a girl)
No! Scott Babe isn't a true chef -- he just likes to keep his clothes clean! But I must say, if you tasted those ribs, you'd think he was trained :-)

Colleen said, "These are the best ribs I've ever had"
We played Loaded Questions into the night. :-)
