A while back I wrote a post called Warning: Blogging can be dangerous! In that post I talked about how I sometimes get distracted by my blog when I am cooking. Apparently I have not learned my own lesson.
A couple of days ago I was cooking up my Grilled Dry Rub Steaks recipe on the grill that is located on the back deck of our house. I had the sliding glass door open with the radio station where I have my show playing softly in the background. I had my camera in hand and was trying to get a good picture of the steaks so I could use it on my blog.
It was a rattlesnake! Only 4 feet away from me, at the edge of the deck, coiled up, tail rattling, head up in the air, hissing at me. I don't think I have ever been that scared before. I slowly backed up into the house.
My husband arrived at home just a couple of minutes after I had barricaded myself and Buddy inside. My fearless hero grabbed a shovel and went to kill the snake. After a few attempts to kill the snake, the deed was done.
We ate our slightly charred, but delicious steaks, then my husband went outside to bury the snake. At this point I should have know there was something wrong. Our dog would not go outside. As my husband stepped outside on the deck he heard a rattle. There in the same place was another rattlesnake. A few whacks latter and that snake was history too.
I have learned my lesson again, about the dangers of being distracted by your blog. At least I hope I have!
Oh, by the way, does anyone have a recipe for BBQ rattlesnake?
Check back on Friday, when I post my recipe for the delicious
Grilled Dry Rub Steaks.
