Out of the Blue

We had a fine old time celebrating our anniversary yesterday. MrsBlue made an apricot chutney to go with my ancho and chipotle rubbed grilled pork tenderloin, and we were in hog heaven, so to speak. I have burgers and stuff for today, as well, but after pigging out (I'll stop now) yesterday, I'm still working up to this.
