Our daughter has her boyfriend and a couple of college friends staying over this weekend.

I've had a pork butt in the smoker since 8 AM. Tonight will be pulled pork with homemade KC-style sauce, potato salad, honey baked beans, and coleslaw.

It is hot and humid here, thinking a big tossed salad will be enough for me.

Got a new tank on the propane grill. Picked up some NY strips at the store. We'll have those and salads.

I have a small spaghetti squash. I might incorporate it with fettuccine & make a Straw & Hay dish. Fresh fruit (strawberrie, etc.) for dessert.

Very colorful, Harry! Looks delicious.

On the other hand, my butt is quite ugly.

But it's falling-off-the-bone tender and very tasty.

Actually, it's a thing of beauty! I've got the buns to go with it.

Not sure. Waaaaay to hot to cook out. Today's high is/was 105F and we just want to hunker down and stay cool.

Except...the power went out about an hour and a half ago, so the staying cool part means being still and not opening any doors. Can't microwave or bake anything. We have a gas cooktop but that would generate heat. There's plenty of ice and bourbon. Maybe we'll have a liquid diet if the power doesn't come on in time for supper.

Otherwise, if the power does come on soon we have a refrigerator full of Fourth of July leftovers Glenn's son brought by last night. Burgers, hot dogs, slaw, you name it. Only time will tell.

We had rotisserie chicken too! It's our 15th anniversary. We had a pasta salad with that and a leafy salad of arugula, romaine, and snow peas. I used the same homemade vinaigrette in both salads, seasoned with fresh basil, chives, and Italian parsley from the garden. It was accompanied by a lovely Portuguese rosé, Casal Mendes.
