Dan and Melissa invited us for a barbecue to welcome Ian back home from a four-month trip to Tibet as a study abroad student. He looked great, and of course Melissa and Dan looked relieved. The deck was a bit too windy, after a while I decided to move inside. But while out there I took enough photographs to share the enjoyable afternoon, and even included the smoker that was readying our dinner. You will see the chickens that came out, they were delicious.
One of our colleagues from the education department, Comfort Ateh and her daughter Adrianna were there too. I had med Comfort before but not Adrianna, it was Jan’s first time meeting both of them. Comfort is originally from Cameroon and her daughter is going to college at URI.
After Dan and Ian brought the chickens inside, I noticed the beer cans stuck inside the chickens to provide the necessary moisture I suppose. Dan pulled the now mostly empty cans out and cut the chickens and we enjoyed a delicious dinner. After dinner, there was Jan’s baklava, chocolate-chip cookies, and Melissa made some kind of rhubarb dessert.
A most enjoyable afternoon and evening indeed.
