1. I've decided I need a smoker. Our friends have both an electric and a wood-powered model and say they haven't used the wood model since getting the electric. But this seems to be quite a bone of contention in the barbecue world. What say you, Internet?
2. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I did some major training this weekend. I biked one loop (42 miles) of the Ironman Wisconsin route on Saturday, then did a century ride on Sunday. My legs were tired to start with, and I got a flat 10 miles into the century, so it was an adventure.
3. But that meant Monday was a Funday. We went on a long walk along the trails of Verona, then hoped onboard a friend's boat for fun in the sun - sort of. It was much colder than expected, and I'm not sure if everyone in our party had fun. I can't tell if Napoleon likes boats or not. He seems to enjoy the wind, but when we arrived at the marina, he jumped off the boat, ran up the dock and sat by the truck. Maybe it was fun once he got going?
