Look at what Akemi made! Yesterday, she stuffed, seasoned, rolled, and trussed a pork belly. Then, this morning, she woke up at 6:00 a.m. to slow-roast it for five and a half hours before finishing it off with a 30 minute broil to render the skin extra crispy. She served it for lunch with her home made chimichurri sauce and a side salad.
And while we were eating, my Snow Monkeys were winning! They’ve improved to a less-than-impressive 3-6 in Stargate League Play but a very impressive record of 6-3 in my Original League. I will, of course, be managing my team from Japan for the next two weekends – so wish my Snow Monkeys luck! A double playoff appearance is going to be a hard trick to pull off.
Yesterday, Akemi and I met up with our friends, Jeff and Barb, who are in town, visiting from Chicago. We hit Campagnolo for lunch and enjoyed some brunch, pizza…and some unexpected belated birthday gifts.
