This past Friday night was supposed to be an outdoor movie night...but as the blog post from that day explains, we encountered some technical difficulties with the projector, and then the house still got hit by a pretty heavy downpour during prime movie night hours.
There's a long-time core group that seems to willingly report a little earlier for a bit of grub, before the evening's film and if I can get it all put together, and Friday night the menu included indoor pulled pork barbecue, blue cheese cole slaw, and eggy potato salad. I also had creamy stuffed eggs and homemade pimento cheese to go with it all. We chowed down.
Also, let me note that this stormy pattern is persisting. This is the storm that passed through last night, waking me up at around 1:30 am:
"Indoor Pulled Pork," by Bryan Roof. In Cook's Illustrated, January & February 2010 (No. 102), p. 6-7.
"Blue Cheese Cole Slaw," from Ina Garten, from the Food Network website.

"Eggy Potato Salad with Pickles," by Jenny Rosenstratch and Andy Ward. In Bon Appétit, May 2012, p. 36.
