We brought up some delicious ribs from Butcher Boy Meat and Deli. It's a local deli right around the corner from our house. They carry specialty meat and cheeses and cooking items that are hard to find in your local market. The crazy thing is, we live in kind of an older neighborhood, (Dean and I call it the Sparks Ghetto). It's not a bad neighborhood, just has a lot of room for improvement. So I consider it an odd place for such an expensive specialty store. The meat is always delicious and a super yummy treat when we get together with family or friends. Everyone brought something yummy for the BBQ. The meal was delicious.
Burnt Cedar Beach is a private beach. If you are not a local you can only come in if you are the guest of a local. I understand why they have these beaches, but I don't know if I necessarily agree with them. However they have a lovely heated pool and the girls had a blast swimming.
The BBQ pit that we made dinner at (in the background) was the same place we had our wedding reception at.
If these last two pictures don't make you want to pack up your house quit your job and move or at least visit Lake Tahoe, I don't know what would. I would be a happy girl ending my day with a sunset like this every night. If you do ever decide to visit the lake, let me know. I would be happy to point out some of the hidden hot spots for yummy food and family fun that only the locals usually know about.
