The hubs got himself a new toy using points on one of the credit cards. It is a smoker and he is enamored by it. He has been talking for weeks about what meats he is going to smoke. Well, he started with a pork butt. He made a rub the night before and was up before 6 a.m. to put it on the smoker.
He was pleased with the bark. It looks like it is burnt, trust me in that it tastes wonderful.
I made some slaw, he bought sauce and buns and this is what we ended up with. Let me tell you, I'm think I'm going to love this new toy of his!
The hubs and I went to a local wine festival with our neighbors. I even had a compliment on my jacks while I sampling some white wine. I ended up drinking 2 glasses of sangria while browsing the vendors booths. I bought 2 photographs and no wine. Oh well, it is close enough to visit when I need some more vino.
Once again it is time for Race for the Cure in Raleigh. This will be the 7th year I have done it with my older sister. I can not wait until the race is no longer needed. Every year I do it to honor/remember someone. This year I'm doing it for Grace. She was recently diagnosed.
I had one of my best visits to Colorado last week. The hubs rode in the Iron Horse Classic from Durango to Silverton with his brothers. We spent and afternoon at a local lake, had breakfast at Durango Diner and I enjoyed an incredible crepe while he was riding his bike up a mountain. I did buy him some toffee from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for his effort!
