An early afternoon thunderstorm brought some good rain and cool fall-like temperatures to the D.F. but nevertheless voters headed to the polls. To celebrate our host country's election, Julia and I made some banana bread (yes I helped!) and smoked some spare ribs - important ingredients for watching election results tonight. Here's to no sore losers! Thanks to Mike for the new recipe. I put the mop sauce too early and the sugar caramelized a bit. Guess I'll have to try again.
