Day 2 was held at Smoken Joe's in Brighton. And I love this place. I got there a little earlier than the rest of the group, and got to chat with a few regulars, including Smoken' Joe's wife Wendy. Everyone was super friendly, telling me all about the place, events, and menu recommendations. I split a rack of ribs with a new friend, Ariel and let me just say we took care of business. They had a wide selection of sauces, inspired by several different styles of barbecue, from Texas, to Louisiana to Memphis. Joe and Wendy did their homework, y'all. And they get an A+.

Success!! How did you celebrate Meat Week?
Some other things...
I'm back to having Saturday Big breakfasts. They're so much better now that I have my espresso maker and milk frothier, and now that we know how to make salted caramel to put into these lattes.
These are new at Anthropologie. But couldn't I just paint baby food jars and add a little chalkboard paint? You think? Also, how many of you see things at Anthropologie and think "I could make that..." and take a picture of it so that you can? I do it all the time. How many of those pictures have become actual projects that you've completed? Myself, the answer is a big fat zero...
|but I'm totally making these jars.|
Finally, my amazing friend Madaline gave birth to TWO beautiful boys this week, with the help and encouragement from her wonderful husband/coach Walter and without any epidural. Rock stars!
