The weather was beautiful over the weekend. Sunday, we grilled chicken breasts and giant shrimp, marinated in La Conda extra-virgin olive oil, rice wine vinegar, grated ginger, minced garlic, crushed red pepper, lime juice, and a variety of spices. Yesterday, we had a spiral-cut ham, green beans, and baked potatoes.

This morning, the beautiful weather is absent—replaced by rain.
