Hello – happy Saturday!
It’s been a low-key day here at casa de IGE. Ben and I slept in, then lazily got ready to head to the Farmer’s Market for a stroll and early lunch. It was only 10:30, but we were already starving for Pupusas!
Alas, the weather had different ideas regarding our lunch plans and a wall of ominous looking clouds started creeping up on the horizon. Luckily one of our favorite BBQ joints in town was nearby, so we made a split second decision to take a rain check on the Market & Pupusas (literally, tee-hee) and head to Jethro’s for lunch instead!
Their ribs are to die for, but something about the simple BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich always sucks me in.
I am telling you – I cannot get enough BBQ these days!
Jethro’s hickory & oak smoked meats are unnnnbelievable. Incredibly tender and full of flavor.
Check out that pink smoke ring on the outside of the pork. Slurp <– sorry, drooling!
Before I could dig in though, I had to consult – The Sauce Bear.
Jethro’s mild, sweet & smoky house BBQ sauce smothered my succulent sammy. YUM!
My side of sweet potato fries played no second fiddle. Nosiree.
These ultra-sweet fries are lightly battered before getting fried, which gives them this fabulous, crispy crunch. They were promptly demolished.
I ♥ Jethro’s!
In other news, Ben is feeling a little under the weather ( ) so we’re going to keep it low key this evening and watch Winter’s Bone. Have you seen it?
Last night I watched Conviction with Hilary Swank. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. Hil is an acting goddess. I love her!
It’s probably for the best that we lay low tonight, as we did NONE of the things on our “honey-do” lists today. Tomorrow will be busy busy!!
Have a great night!
