Turned 45 this weekend and summer has arrived around here so we threw a little shindig. There was a bit too much wine and visiting involved for pictures of the event but a few of the prep.

Made 16 pounds of pulled pork two weeks ago that I froze in food saver bags, warmed that up for a couple of hours in the oven at 250 with a tin of coke. Worked great.

Then yesterday I did a fast brisket cook ala Julie, Pat and Richard.


Miranda made a peanut butter cup ala Zippy


While the brisket was resting I did up a grid of chicken thighs rubbed with raging river not pictured and another rack of the same thighs but wrapped in bacon.


I got gifts. I really was not expecting gifts. First though beware of Doug:


That card came with this present... Stunned I am, can't wait for it to arrive.


And my family got me a portable expresso maker, coming soon to an eggfest near you.

    Hope you enjoyed your birthday. Checked out the web site for the MyPressi and that is a cool espresso maker you got there.
  • Glad the party went well B)

    You're still a spring chicken man!

  • Need to find a cheap source of the co2 that powers it, only 4 shots to a tube and they are not cheap around here. That said as far as I can tell it should make a decent cup of espresso.

  • That's the way it works I'll always be younger than you, and she'll always be younger than me. And so it goes.

  • This would be a fine time to visit for sure, we really only have 2 seasons. 3 weeks ago it was warming up but the world was grey, now the world is green and the temperatures are close to normal for summer, spring only lasts a week or 2.

  • Thank you, thank you.

  • Sad news my friend, no OKC for us next year we are going to the Northern Georgia fest as our big trip.
