Brother’s Day Celebration 2011

Saturday marked what we’re pretty sure was the Eighth Annual Observance of Brother’s Day, though it’s sadly only the third (after 2010 and 2009) to be documented on Alibi.com. The theme this year was fried foods. We powered up two deep fat fryers and kept them cranking all night long with two types of batter and every food thing known to man. From Oreos to oysters, sardines to sandwiches, pickles to pot stickers we fried it all. Everyone was forced to listen to the same four Lynyrd Skynyrd songs looped together for the entire evening, and we set off one (only one!) massive firework that was visible throughout Northern New Mexico. Until next year, Happy Brother’s Day to all my brothers.

My &ldquo;Inside-Out Chile Rellano Sandwiches&rdquo; were curiously delicious.

The Cracklin&rsquo; Brother&rsquo;s Day Fire Crackled weirdly against the bitter January night.
