A couple who've become MrsG and my closest friends in town are moving far away on Monday, which is not making me happy. However, what is making me happy is the epic cookout we have planned for their going away party tomorrow. It used to be that I was good for a number of cookouts every year, but that has slowed down considerably in the last few years. In fact, this will be my first one this year. So, on top of making sure we have a great sendoff for good friends, I get to knock the dust off of a bunch of recipes and cook a nice feast for about 15 people.

This calls for some foie gras and a drink!
to your health!
