Sorry.... I can't hear you over this BEAUTIFUL day....
Holy day to be alive, Batman! It's in the 70's, sunny, breezy, and PERFECT outside. If I had written a request for a perfect Saturday to be anyplace but within four walls......
Friends coming over this evening for enjoyment, edibles, and shenanigans. There may be a fire pit involved, as it's slated to cool off nicely.
A 10 pound pork butt, dry rubbed, is now on the grill at 220 degrees. Later, I'll add some wood for smoke, and mop with a sweet vinegar something or other. I figure about 10 hours or so.
Herself is making her potato salad, which is a wonderment. I suspect there will also be some baking... but I won't swear to it. Think Blueberry Cobbler, or some such.
Good cigars, 10 year old Scotch, and a day spent outside 'monitoring' meat on the grill. Good friends, good food, and the finest weather one could ask for.
This all feels like a reward for something.
