On Tuesday I recorded a video at Comcast in Dover talking about the Port of Wilmington. Thursday was a Blue-Gold PAC fundraiser at Dover Downs. Thursday night was a Wilmington University reception, the Kent County GOP Monthly Meeting, and Smyrna Night Out. Yesterday was the always successful Spring Fling for the Townsend Fire Co and Ducks Unlimited. Today I joined Willey Farms for the dedication of their new flag pole in honor of Flag Day.

-Tomorrow I am getting a tour of the new medical marijuana facility opening in Wilmington. Tomorrow night is also a ceremony in Smyrna in honor of the Magna Carta. Please email me if you would like to know more about it

Delicious for summer. Try with sausage, brats, kielbasa, hot dogs, or any similar meat

-6 meats (see above)

-1 bottle lager or similar style beer

-1 tbsn mustard seed

-1 tbsn whole cloves

-1 tbsn whole coriander

-6-10 whole allspice

-2 bay leaves

-1 sliced medium onion

-2 cups water

Pierce meat several times with a fork. Put all ingredients except the meat in a pot. Bring to a rolling boil. Add the meat. If there is not enough liquid, add water until the meat is covered. Boil 5 minutes. Cover and turn off heat. Let sit 15 minutes. Finish cooking the meat on a grill to crisp it up. Enjoy.

— Thanks.
