No game tonight! Supposedly the temp reading, on the field, late afternoon, was 117 degrees in the sun…that’s insane! So the game was cancelled, due to dangerous heat. Indeed. Not to mention the humidity. Man, I could have almost slow-cooked a pork shoulder at that temp, mmm hmmm… But no, instead, we had our baseball…

The Laukka-Rempfer Floridians prevailed today, thanks to smokin’ hot pitching by Nick and sweaty, dusty catching by Owen. We are now guaranteed at least second place, which is the best we’ve ever fared in AAA or Minors Little League play – very exciting! The fans so lucked out with cloud cover and a nice breeze,…

YUM! Undiscovered Diva Suz and I had lunch at YUM Bakery today, what a treat! I ran into two former Park Nicollet girlfriends as well, Sonya and Laura, having some yum of their own. Suz loved her grilled veggie foccacia sandwich, I had a yummy (!) warm chicken club with a real summer treat –…

Undiscovered Divas, Kim and Suz, debuted at 6 p.m. on FM 107 tonight! I’m kicking myself for not posting earlier, before they were on, but this day got completely away from me. I myself only got to catch about the first five minutes – Nathan had a baseball game tonight, and Dad, Stacey, Bowen, Cooper,…

Well, turns out I did indeed sand- and slaw-wich myself out yesterday (not a surprise, ha). So, no Zabar’s corned beef on rye for lunch today. Just slaw-as-salad, sliced garden tomatoes, and a few last bites of the grilled pork…sniff, sniff…we miss it already. That was a true summer treat, mmm hmmmm. You know, I…

Ouch, ouch! It wasn’t just the pork shoulder that got smoked over the weekend, someone carelessly got waaaay too much sun yesterday. Not moderate, Stephanie, not at all! It started innocently enough – a soft, gorgeous morning, cerulean blue sky, warm (not hot) sunshine… I thought I’d head out for a quick swim. Well, two…

Oink, oink! I’ll be earning my nickname – Smokaaaay – today, oh yes I will. The pork shoulder is on the grill, I repeat, the pork shoulder is on the grill. Butterflied, pricked and stuffed all over with slivered garlic, dry-rubbed with lots o’spicy spices, now slow-smokin’ over (a foil packet of) hickory chips. I’ll…

Looking forward to dinner at Luci Ancora tonight, with Stacey, Bowen, Cooper, Dad, and Stacey’s awesome friend and neighbor Caroline. I’ll check back in after a bit with the yummy details… Picked up my La Finca CSA veggie share – this week’s treasure includes Walla Walla onions, basil, garlic, and a few early tomatoes, as…

BLTA&B. Not to be confused with GLBT (ha), it’s a bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado sandwich with an ice-cold beer. Mooooaaaan, it was soooooo good, a lunch my dad would definitely appreciate. I meant to take a pic, but unless I shot it en estomac, it’s way too late. I inhaled that baby, couldn’t help myself….
