National Capital BBQ Battle and a few random things

Hi, boys and girls.

If you live in Washington DC area, I would like to encourage you to go to the National Capital BBQ Battle this weekend! I know the weather is going to be incredibly hot, but this is a fun event (and raises money for a great cause)! I went to this event 4 years ago and this year was invited to attend as "media" and can take 5 of my friends for free!!! I'll post pictures from the event next week.

From the news release: Over 50 teams from all over the US are competing for $40,000 at the National Barbecue Championship. We have already raised one million dollars over the years for the DC Boys and Girls' clubs, and we're starting on our second million. We've got lots of food, lots of music, and lots of kids activities.

In other news, please check out my recipe in DC Examiner for Beet Greens with Prosciutto.

Despite the heat this is the type of event I love. It's fun and for a good cause. I hope it's successful and raises the money its sponsors are anticipating.

Sounds like a fun event, but we have my husbands' company picnic this weekend. Wish I could go though.

A BBQ battle?? Haha... not sure what that is gonna look like (I envision people throwing kebabs at each others heads and ducking to avoid being splattered with ketchup or other stuff) but it sounds like fun. I'm having a foodevent tomorrow, so quite looking forward to it! Can't wait to hear your adventures on the BBQ battle (which I am sure is nothing like the picture in my head..lol)
