Cool and wet again today. At least to start. It rained here most of yesterday, going from storm to drizzle to storm to steady rain, back to misty drizzle throughout the day. I’m hoping that it will dry out a bit later.
My smoked turkey was a success. It was done earlier than expected, so we ate earlier. I thought I’d be short on wood for the smoke but I had plenty. Shredded pecan stump works great. It’s been a few years so I am happy it went well, and I will do more smoking soon. The stuff will stay up here and I should be able to do little jobs while watching the fire. Both the turkey and the pork ribs had beautiful ruby red flesh, a good half inch deep or deeper and tasted great.
I didn’t get much else done, but I did get some (very) small things off the list. And importantly, my wife proved we can do a big meal from scratch up here despite the work zone conditions and very small oven.
And hey, we found a couple of things we haven’t brought up yet, like a small food processor, or an immersion blender. Or honey. If we’re gonna keep making cornbread, we WILL need honey.
Today I’m hoping to get back in the groove and make some real progress on the master bath. We’ll see what happens.
And the next trip up, I’ve got to move a bunch of stuff.
Everyone should be stacking whatever they can.
