Busy Summer Underway

Even in retirement, I'm staying busy. But I'm sure most retirees have reached that point at some time.  Beginning on Friday past (7/22/2016), a few of DKW's childhood friends(from PA) began gathering here for a get-together at our home.  I had already started prep for a pig roast on Saturday by making tater salad, deviled eggs, and a couple of breads (fig &  blueberry). I picked up the pig Friday and iced it.  Early Saturday morning I laid it out and kneaded in a dry rub on the interior and spread olive oil on the skin side.  Had to enlist a little help to turn the pig (60 lbs.) a couple of times, but it turned out great. Even after feeding the group of us for several days I'm going to end up shredding and freezing a lot of meat for use in future recipes. But that's okay. Its all good.

We have a couple of other short jaunts planned this summer, and I'm looking forward to those, but I don't like to publish any details until we are back.  I will say that one jaunt concerns family health and the other strictly a fun trip.  I will, after the fact, publish details.  I don't do it now for security reasons.  Even though we have someone here to watch the place.  No need to let any potential bad guys know when we are gone.  Trying to play it smart - ya know.

And in closing - SHARKNADO Week is underway on SyFy network.  Last night I watched "Atomic Shark" - Sooooo Cheesey!  Definitely a "Sharon Special"!  Tonight's offering is "Dam Sharks".  Break out the wine to go with that cheese! The first 3 Sharknado movies will air back-to-back-to-back on July 30th  beginning at 6:00 PM (Central Time) and July 31st ending with the world premiere of Sharknado 4 at 7:00 PM (Central).  Break out the snacks and veg out!
Everyone have a great Day!
