Sunday I ate

Breakfast: Made lemon scones. Basically, the recipe here, but without raspberries. Tessa couldn’t decide on lemon or vanilla glaze, so we made both.
Lunch: Grilled salami and cheese sandwich

Afternoon snack: Hand Pie. Some chocolate chips. Iced Tea
Dinner: Pulled pork. Tried a combination of sous vide and smoker based on Serious Eats. The texture and moisture of the meat was awesome, but it didn’t really pick up much smoke flavor. I used the gas grill with wood chips over the lighted burner on one end and the meat at the other end. Kept the grill temp around 280F. Wood just smoked for a few minutes, then went out. Next time (and there will be a next time for this technique) I’ll try the electric smoker. Two hours smoking. Also made the usual BBQ sauce from APL (Serious BBQ). Suzanne made sweet potato rolls and an awesome vinegar slaw.

Dessert: Vanilla cream pie.
