Hey big boy…

I bought this book because it has a funny title. You have to admit “Big Boy, America’s most popular Barbecue Book” is ripe ground for hilarity.

Little did I know…. Big Boy is a brand of barbecue, not actual reference to the man cooking the food. *cue disappointed face*

Still, the odd sweeping statement on American cuisine can be found.

Steak is the favourite food of Americans says this sweeping statement

Not to mention a few classic old food ideas. When was the last time you had a barbecue spiced banana? It’s been too long.


Tomorrow is Australia Day so the barbecue will be getting a workout for sure. Lamb will feature heavily but right now, I’m off to get me some bananas!

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
