this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

Jon loves his new ginormous charcoal grill/smoker. Last Sunday he made the most delectable mesquite smoked pork tenderloin.
Now, Susan does not like pork tenderloins (unless made by her gourmet chef friend Meredyth who puts it with herbed chevre cheese and rosemary garlic mashed potatoes), so had a hard time eating it - very picky about meats - but even she had to admit its mouth-watering flavour. The grill was one of our best buys this summer (as we are often obsessed with cooking and dining).

Today, Susan wanted chocolate cake. She had been reminiscing about her mother-in-law's infamous chocolate-chocolatechip-bundt cake and got a craving.
And today, a new cake was born: Chocolate Hug cake: devil's food hugged by raspberry wine chocolate sauce, and sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. So rich and delicious you might get a little dizzy.

After dinner, Margie and Jon played: who can bark louder at one another?

It was quite delightful to listen to.
