Cooking Out


Right now I'm getting ready for a long day of cooking, my sister and myself have taken on the task of barbecuing for the family. We found at the Piggly Wiggly, ribs they had packaged with three ribs to a pack. We asked that each family purchase one package of three, we will cook all the ribs and wrap two for each family to take home, we would then take the third and cut it into single bones to serve at the family dinner tomorrow. Now in all we will be grilling 24 slabs of ribs. Are we crazy? Totally! Will we have fun? Totally! I hope you all will be doing something great with your families this weekend. Let's remember to include thoughts of all our soldiers that have lost their lives in their commitments to keep our country free, and to pray for the families they left behind doing so. God Bless!

Deb,
What time will it all be ready? Ha! It all sounds so good and so fun. I cooked our big meal today. I cooked all morning. It rained here most of the morning, so I didn't feel like I was missing out on much outside, so I just really took my time. I did a pork butt with all the trimmings and some banana pudding and choc cake extras. I am still stuffed. I think I have eat banana pudding about 5 times now, today. I gonna have to turn side ways to get through the door tomorrow. HA!

Your dinner is going to be so good, Deb! Your going to have a great time, today!

I made potato salad yesterday. It's the mustard/mayo dressing type of potato salad, with sliced eggs on top and paprika. We cheated and bought the slaw at the Colonel's...o well...it's almost like mine;-).

About 2/3 of our family are on the road for delayed honeymoons and school, so our youngest and her family will be the only ones here today.
J is grillin' pork steaks. J grillin' is the same as J making coffee...he does a great job and it's always delish, so he's the one who does it!

It's been raining, off and on this morning. Gabi and Drew love our back yard, so hope the sun comes out so they can run all they want to.

I love your new birdhouse and I absolutely enjoyed how you photographed it and told the story.

Congrats on your continued wt loss!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
Pat

Hey Deb, How's your day? Thanks for your kind comments on my last post. I wanted to tell you about Cielo in case you have not heard of her. Her blog is called The House In Roses

http://houseinroses.blogspot.com/

She is participating in a kitchen show, where you show your kitchen on your blog. I thought of you when I saw her kitchen. I'd love to see yours and thought you might like to participate. I love my kitchen, but it's not fabulous, so I may not show it. Have a great evening, Kathi
