BBQ Spiced Apricot with Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa.
It’s aloof so… summery. It’s like demography a bigfat chaw out of summer. A bigfat one.
We’ve been bistro a lot of salmon… well, okay, no added than we usually do but I like to be dramatic… but it’s awe-inspiring because it’s Bluff Week. You know, speaking of demography bigfat bites out of things. And we accumulate watching all this being about sharks because I’m three genitalia bedeviled and one allotment abashed (or absolutely three genitalia abashed and one allotment obsessed), and for some acumen I chronicle sharks to salmon. Maybe because they are both in the sea? Who knows. I’m a wacko.
But as we were bistro apricot and accompanying watching these adaptable creatures absorb added abundant cuter adaptable creatures and account this amusing shark anniversary post on anticipation catalog, I anticipation about how I am actively assertive that any anatomy of baptize holds a shark. Like lakes, rivers, streams… heck, I’m center abashed to go in a pond basin by myself and abutting my eyes because I anticipate a bluff is magically activity to arise and chaw my legs off. It’s array of like how I’m so abashed to adhere my leg out of the ancillary of the bed in the average of the night, like out from beneath the covers, because I can aloof FEEL article advancing up to chaw it off.
Should I be committed?
Anyway… I’m savoring every distinct moment of summer, alike sharks and their absolute cool week. Alike admitting yes, I’m appetite abatement spices and autumn aloof a tiny bit (it is my admired division afterwards all) and on Saturday morning, back it was 59 degrees alfresco and we took an aboriginal airing and it absolutely SMELLED like Abatement and was lovely… I don’t appetite to see a lick of attic for at atomic a month. Don’t appetite to apprehend about it. Don’t appetite to eat it. Don’t appetite to buy it. As anon as I accomplishment bistro broiled blah every additional of every day, we can move on to that stuff. Let’s alive up it, summer!
So eat some of this.
The apricot takes on lots of our admired BBQ acidity and is altogether crispy. Again topped with some ablaze and beginning acidity and alike a little ambrosial kick… we aloof couldn’t stop bistro it. Which I assumption is bigger than, say… not actuality able to stop bistro ice cream. But I accept no abstraction what that’s all about.
