Peach Thyme Pulled Pork
Chapter 7 of Dishroom Blunders
I grew up in Colorado and nothing feels like the impending transition from summer to autumn more than the height peach season. My wife and I typically buy peaches by the box to freeze, can, jam, and put on almost every meal we eat.

When the days are hot and sunny here in Colorado during the summer, I try to use our grill every day to get some extra time outside. While I enjoy slow smoking ribs or a pork butt, my most successful meat smoking to date has been chicken wings.
The Outer Hebrides
Chapter 18 of Nomad Life

Chapter 17 of Nomad Life
Our ferry from Holyhead, Wales docked in Dublin late afternoon. We were nervous about crossing the border into Ireland with Skutull for two reasons. First, Skutull had undergone foot surgery a week earlier and was still healing. Second, the language the Irish government used on their website was extreme with regards to importing animals. There were a host of requirements for entry, such as notifying their agricultural department, undergoing worming treatment 1-5 days before arrival, and having a fully updated vaccination record. It wasn’t the requirements, but the consequences of failing to meet all the requirements that worried us. Quoting their website, if you fail to meet all entry requirements “your pet may be euthanised.”
