The past couple of days Randy has been preparing a dinner for today. Ashley's grandma passed, and the memorial dinner was held in the Assembly building on the Museum grounds. Ashley asked Randy to make a dinner for 50 people, and she based the menu on the recent retirement dinner Randy made. So he cooked a lot of pulled pork; Costco's best deal was on pork shoulder so he had to cook it in the smoker and oven for over 26 hours, but it came out tender and juicy! He made baked beans and potato salad for side dishes, and for dessert he baked lemon meringue, coconut cream, banana and French apple pies.
Today was one of the hottest days of the year and although there was very little to clean up, I still almost passed out from the heat. But dinner was worth it - I would do a lot more for Randy's lemon meringue pie.
