    [align=left]BBQ Rules...[/align] [align=left]We are about to enter summer and BBQ season. Therefore, it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, as its the only type of cooking a 'real' man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.[/align][align=left]When a man volunteers to do the BBQ, the following chain of events are put into motion:[/align] [align=left]Routine...[/align]

    [align=left](1) The woman buys the food.[/align]
    [align=left](2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes desert.[/align]
    [align=left](3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.[/align]

    [align=left]Here comes the important part:[/align]

    [align=left](4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.[/align]

    [align=left]More routine...[/align]
    [align=left](5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.[/align]
    [align=left](6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.[/align]

    [align=left]Important again:[/align]

    [align=left](7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.[/align]

    [align=left]More routine...[/align]

    [align=left](8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.[/align]
    [align=left](9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.[/align]
    [align=left]And most important of all:[/align]
    [align=left](10) Everyone Praises the Man and Thanks Him for his cooking efforts.[/align]
    [align=left](11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off." And, upon seeing her reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women...[/align]

    I got a big laugh out of this.* At least my hubby will cook many of the side dishes and doesn't drink beer so I do catch a break there.* He's really a great cook, but we have a 'rule' that is never followed too strictly - whoever cooks doesn't have to clean up.* The problem with this is I clean up as I cook, so there is often little work to cleaning up behind me.* My hubby, on the other hand, uses every pot, pan, utensil and dish he can find when cooking and leaves the sink piled high and the counters covered with them.* My cleanup is then a huge chore! **:shock: Sometimes it's easier to cook and clean as I go along!* :?*
