I know what you are thinking. Every Sunday is a big day for racing at our house, but today is the biggest! Started the day with Coffee and the Formula One Race in Monaco. After laps around the historic city we watched the winners take the podium and then changed channels to catch Indy 500 pre-race. Just over 100 laps until someone will kiss the bricks and drink Milk. Yikes! As a non-milk fan that would be tough for me to tackle, but if I won the Indy500 I am sure I could make it happen!
For those non-race fans it has been a tradition to drink milk after your win. If you really want to get historic one of the first winners was handed buttermilk by their mother because it was a good way to rehydrate after a hot and humid race. The Indiana farmers saw an opportunity to promote their products. They got together with the racetrack owners and the following year it became a tradition to drink milk in the winner’s circle. The rain has held off and so far we are on schedule for a perfect day! Nascar hits the track around 6pm in Charlotte and in order to watch all 3 races live today we can’t have a weather hold-up.
Since rain has been in our schedule I opted to use the oven for dinner. We will fire up the grill tomorrow! Grammie gave us a new roasting pan and we are breaking it out for a spiral ham. Getting meat in and out of the oven with Rufus is never an easy task, but this pan is heavy duty and so far the ham is safe and secure! In 3 hours we will see if Rufus has to go on the porch or if the roasting pan can hold its own!
