Cooking Follow-Up

They did it again. By "they" I mean my family--- the undeclared enemies, the camp of cooks, whatever. Just when you think a meal can't be topped, they manage to do it. Yesterday's meal was one for the books. The array of salads, vegetable dishes, and desserts was phenomenal but the piece de resistance was the meat course of pulled pork. It was cooked over a charcoal fire with hickory for eight hours and the taste was incredible.

There was plenty of humor on the side but my favorite was when my great-nephew, Alex, was finishing a piece of chocolate cake. He said, "Hey, Dad. You know that rule about only having only one piece of chocolate cake? Well, a raccoon ate about half of mine.........."
