Saturday Forecast - Smokey

We have been so crazy busy the last couple of weeks around Chez Good Appetite re-landscaping the yard plus having a new patio & stairs installed. It was a lot of hard work, & sweaty with the heat & humidity we've had, but it's all done & this weekend we'll celebrate with what we are calling Smokapalooza.
Here's some shots of our finished work....

Your hard work has paid off - your yard and patio look spectacular! I remember the sausage you made earlier from which came your 'Oink' entry to Eating Your Words. Now, it's just plain ol' 'eating your grilled sausage'! Have a wonderful Smokapalooza weekend!

Lovely patio!
You are ready for a party, and that sausage looks great!
You can open up a butcher shop too!

Liking the big paving slabs - also liking the sound of the ice cream

You're yard looks fantastic! Like Curb Appeal TV just pulled out of you're driveway. And the party sounds fun and delicious. Lucky friends!

So this brings to mind an old saying: "I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole." But would you with a ten foot Polish sausage?

MrOrph said...

I really need to make some sausage. I have all the tools - just been so lazy. That rope looks like it is going to be fantastic!
