I got that sinking feeling as I walked back to my bike yesterday when I realised that I couldn’t find my keys.  Semi-frantic pocket-patting ensued, but no dice!  I thought, hoped, that maybe I’d left the keys in the box on the back but as I got to the bike I could see that I hadn’t. Then, from the corner of my eye, I spotted a dreaded parking fine stuck to the inside of my windshield.  Talk about adding insult...

I got the rotisserie attachment for my Weber BBQ this Christmas (thanks to my darling fiancee!) & tried it out today.  Combined with another first:  marinating the meat with a herb dry-rub, I was very pleased with the result.  The meat was moist, tender and had a nice crust from the rub.  Will definitely be rotisserie’ing more often!  🙂 [Not high quality]] photos below: A dry-rub marinade applied a few hours before cooking.  I just used all the remaining fresh...
