BBQ at Vallejo

Cherry preps the car for its trek from SF to Vallejo

This Saturday afternoon, I go along with my girlfriend as well as her mom to their family BBQ home party at Vallejo. Today, the heat wave in California continues so by the time we reached Vallejo, Cherry's car says the outside temperature was a scorching 102 F!!!

About an hour later we arrive at the house and I'm glad we don't spend too much time outside because of the heat!

Cher has been hyping up her cousin in law's BBQ for the past few days so I was ready to eat once we got there!

Although it did take awhile for the food to get ready, Cher and I sat in the living room couch and watched tv. We moved from A League of Their Own [that All-American girl baseball movie with Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell.. and for some reason I can't come up with the main girl.. Gina something..?], The Parent Trap [we had to find something "appropriate" for everyone], and finally gave up and went to where we're comfortable--MTV which was airing America's Best Dance Crew.

I didn't take much photos of the available food but there was some Cesar salad, mango/avocado salad, grilled shrimp on skewers, fresh fruits, etc.

So here's the "famous" BBQ that Cher and her family speak highly of. Slowly baked in the oven for hours and finished off in the grill and then back to the oven to keep warm for everyone.

Filipino means lumpia and the chili sauce.

Here's my first plate: the real good mango/avocado salad [along with cilantro, red onions, and topped with some lemon and pineapple juice!], grilled shrimp, grilled veggies, and the BBQ wings. I also had a good portion of the ribs too but it's not pictured here.

Still working on the Text Book project.

And of course, can't end without a dessert--baked chocolate brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. With the weather going on right now, everyone deserves ice cream!
