The weather—on this, the second day of summer—continues to be relatively mild. It has been in the low 90s for the last several days, and evenings bring a gentle breeze. It is very pleasant weather.

For dinner last evening, we had gourmet burritos. I simmered the remainder of the pig butt in Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for several hours. I added six sliced Jalapeños, two diced habaneros, two sliced white onions, two diced tomatoes, ground black pepper, sea salt, ground cumin, and ground cayenne. Laura began tending to the pan when she arrived. Eventually, the pig meat shredded beautifully. The meal was delightful. Laura left for work this morning with leftovers in tow.
