It is another beautiful day today! I picked up a huge London Broil and a large batch of baby back pig ribs at the market on my way home yesterday afternoon. Laura cut the London Broil in half, froze half, and grilled half, along with red bell pepper, Jalapeño peppers, white mushrooms, and white potato. She did a spicy dry rub on the cow flesh and sprayed it and the other items with a mixture of one part extra-virgin olive oil and three parts balsamic vinegar during the roasting process. The London Broil was perfect--charred on the outside and very rare in the center.

The pig will get tossed onto the grill tomorrow and slow-cooked for several hours. Laura will apply a spicy dry rub prior to tossing it onto the grill, and she will tend to it throughout the cooking process, mopping it with a ginger and garlic vinegar solution every 20 minutes. There are few aromas that approach the delightful smell of roasting pig flesh!

It could be worse! Here is an image from a gas purchase in Beverly Hills, CA, this morning!
