Video of the Day: Caveman's Crib - submitted by Laura

Saturday, Laura poached some asparagus for three minutes then submerged into iced water, drained, and set aside. She did a spicy dry rub with Red Monkey Spice Rub on a large London broil and grilled it perfectly—charred on the outside and rare in the center. It was an excellent meal.

Last evening, Laura thinly sliced a large habanero and sprinkled the pieces on a California Pizza Kitchen Sicilian pizza and baked in the conventional oven for seven minutes. It was delicious and hot! Laura put the bulk of the habanero on my half of the pizza, and—while I ate with great relish—the habanero took its toll on me: Two bottles of frosty Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale were required to soothe the fire in my mouth.

After dinner, we watched "Night in the Museum." This was a wonderfully delightful movie suitable for viewers of all ages. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it.
