Brothers Do Cookout Right!

Welcome to Cookout Tuesday

First off, for any of you out there still dealing with cold weather, my deepest condolences.

This past Sunday my brother and I got together for a cookout to watch the Miami Heat kick the shit out of the Boston Celtics.  It was a good ol' time.

90 F and umm...Sunny!

Water temp 88 F

I ate so much, I was in a damn food coma Sunday night.  Well worth it though!

That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!


  1. looks amazing- we also did BBQ and tons of garden work this weekend- love being in the sun- my monkeys even went for a dip in the pool but it was not near 88!

  2. Looks good Lazaro, thanks for sharing a slice of 'the good life', don't forget to wait 30 minutes after eating before swimming those laps in the pool;-)

  3. Beautiful! From the beautiful blue sky, to the gorgeous pool, to your cute nieces, right down to the mouthwatering showcase of food! Now that's the way to really enjoy a Sunday. Super jealous of that pool. We still have snow on the ground! Dang Canadian weather!
    Thank you for dropping by on my guest post, really appreciate it, Lazaro!

  4. OMG everything looks DELICIOUS! I would be all about that sriricha chicken and probably the ribs too, who am I kidding:) Your nieces are positively adorable too - what a fun day!

  5. We hit the low 90s in San Antonio this past weekend too...summer's definitely on the way here. We have two weeks of spring and then go straight to summer until October. Food looks good...especially those tacos!!

  6. Wow, awesome weather, food and family time.
    Lovely post ♥

  7. OMG, Soooooooooo jealous. Had our coldest day of the year today, 5c... Brrrr.... :( Love the pictures, I adore hanging with the family, and totally get a load of that gorgeous tomato. What a fab day you experienced. :)

  8. Awwww, that's the life! Looks like our typical Sunday in Phoenix. Nothing better than hanging out with family, swimming in the pool and having some awesome BBQ!

  9. I may just have to head south for the winter next year! Ahhh steak medley... what a yummy thought!

    Looks like you guys had a great day!

  10. I'm so jealous its sunny there! NZ is coming up to Winter and it's getting a tad cold :( I feel like I've been in Winter all year long seeing as I left Korea during the middle of Winter too. Those ribs look to die for! Yum

  11. We did have a great time and we will do again this weekend.

  12. I hate you right now! hahaha. I'm very much in a need of warm weather. It's Spring but so cold here. This sounds like a fun get-together and all the food looks yummy. No wonder why you were in food coma!

  13. Your nieces are so cute! And you guys know how to through a great BBQ :)

  14. Wow, I'm so jealous of that BBQ you have, and the pool!! We had nice weather in the UK last weekend too, but we just stayed in the grassy garden with our pitiful excuse for a barbecue :)

  15. Oh, the sad world of the apartment dweller... how I miss cookouts. I can live vicariously through you though... what a feast!!! It's cold and damp up north... your weather is still months away! Black beans and pork shoulder look amazing!

  16. What a feast!! Our temps are rising quickly, so we will grill more in the evenings!! Food coma, lol
    glad miami beat boston (hate them!)but I am a die hard houston rocket girl, even though they totally blew it at the end of the season, so like them!! swoon scola!

  17. Here on the left coast it hasn't been warm enough for pool action, but we've been grilling! Nice peek inside the world of the Saveur nominated "Angriest Blogger" ;)

  18. My husband would have cooking vessel envy if he saw that photo. So lucky you guys can use your pool, it's not warm enough here. Keep bringing on the good eats.

  19. this looks like one hell of a BBQ! I want 90* and sunny and a pool. jealous!

  20. I am so envious of the cooking vessel. What a wonderful way to while away the afternoon.Everything looks just amazing.


Have Your Say!
