This is probably about how I looked crawling out of bed today. Some social time was much overdue in contrast to being consumed with work as of late. We had some great friends over last night to ring in the Summer Solstice and even met some new bright souls. Plenty of laughter, smoked pork and Balvenie Doublewood fueled the fire... ready for another incredible summer. Many adventures lie ahead.
Aurora really put out a spread for all our friends last night with homemade cole slaw and potato salad. Her masterpiece was the first boston butt we've taken a hand a cooking in the gas smoker I just inherited from my Uncle. She was shown extensive love and care from my renaissance wife. Here's the Instagram Progression of Buela's Journey from the Kitchen to the Smoker to the Gullets at the party last night...
