I am really excited to be hosting Sunday Supper this week with grilling as the theme: “Throw Something on the Barbie!”

Mattel’s Ken jokes aside, there are many things we can choose to throw on the Barbie. And with me being somewhat of a barbecue fanatic, I knew this theme was one I would enjoy. Because I have been eating barbecue all my life. And my Dad was a true believer in cooking it low and slow. Summer days would be spent at barbecues with kids in the pool with the sun setting and  the crickets chirping before we set hands on it. I remember one time running around in the dark at my cousin’s home with Corine and Dianne and R.D., everyone with a sticky rib in their hands acting like wild cavemen. Who knows? Maybe with so much sunshine all day long we were getting a bit punchy. But barbecue has helped shape the memories of my life. And the beauty of it is that it will continue to do so in the future. I can’t go long without bbq. I even had bbq ribs and chicken tonight even though I had it out instead of home (it’s been raining a bit here).

And while rain doesn’t deter me (and neither does the cold), sometimes the cook enjoys a night off.

And this recipe isn’t the usual style of bbq, but it is something served at Mexican restaurants in the area (I have had it in a few places and one for sure calls it Chicken Mazatlan, although what it has to do with Mazatlan, I have no idea. Maybe it’s just a gimmick.)

But it’s good- either by itself, or you could heat up some tortillas, slice the chicken and have it a bit of fajita style. And have some frozen margaritas with this. Just because. They have yet to go out of style!

Until next time-
