This past Saturday night CK and I hosted an iPod Battle Royale party at my townhouse where CK and some of his fellow music snobs were required to bring a 30 minute playlist to share.
We had such a great evening, with great friends and while I didn't end up making a playlist I did make a mean pork butt...
|I'm a mix-master in the kitchen and CK is a mix-master with the tunes - we're a good pair.|
|8 lbs of pure pork buttocks.|
I turned that pork butt into the most glorious pulled pork I've ever made, granted this was the first time I ever made pulled pork, but that's beside the point. THIS RECIPE KICKS PORK BUTT - make it now - then make this cilantro jalapeno coleslaw and pile it onto of the pulled pork.
I also made this strawberry spinach salad, this potato salad with lemon and herbs and a family recipe pineapple cake with cream cheese icing.
I really like to cook, guys.

The music theme continued on Sunday with a trip to Blossom Music Center to take in a Dave Matthews Band show. A great group of friends including CK, MOB, Beaver, Jen and Stephen tailgated for the afternoon in the lot and danced our faces off at the DMB show.
|Nice view from the Dave show - the band blew me away for the record, the best they've sounded in years, so polished, so DMB grown up.|

Good weekend, good friends, good music.
I can get used to this life.
