It started out as a dismal day. I cut grass from 8:00 to almost 10:00 and took a shower. Just as I was getting dressed, I got a call from our Christian Education Director. The ceiling has fallen in at the church. I went down there and spent the next 2 hours climbing among 100 year old beams and air conditioning ducts to get the A/C pan drain opened up and then started vacuuming the carpet. Over and over and over again. It's still a mess that needs to be cleaned up, but the insulation is still dripping and will continue to drip through the night, so I can't patch it up until in the morning. We'll just have to worship tomorrow morning with a gapping hole in the ceiling.


Back at the house, my wife reminded me of the ribs I had thawed last night. Mmmmm, things are starting to look up. I put them in the oven and she started to get that "tinker around the kitchen" look that she gets. This is gonna be good, I can tell. While all this is happening, Dad calls and says, I'm coming over, I have something I want to show you. He brought three "vintage" cast iron skillets and a corn bread pan with the miniature corn-on-the-cob pattern cast into it.
I can tell by this time that I'm going to eat too much tonight. After I cooked the ribs in the oven for a few hours, I transfered them to the grill to get the char and the flavor. I cooked them another couple of hours and OOOHHH MAN! Meanwhile, she's conjuring up some broccoli salad (you know the kind with red onions and bacon?
) Then she tops it all off with some corn bread in the new (old) pan.
When I took the ribs up, they had the most beautiful, cinnamon color as any I've ever cooked. One twist and the bones come out clean!


I had BBQ pork ribs, baked mac and cheese, broccoli salad, homemade pickles and corn bread for supper and I had TWO helpings! So much for my diet this week. Tacker, thanks for the pan, buddy! I love it!

Not sure where the gnat line is but I can make it there by supper if there's leftovers.

I'm thinking it's time for dinner at Belch's house. That sounds like one good meal!

Great menu Belch. I could almost taste the dishes as you described them. The downside is no matter what we have for supper, I`ll be remembering what you had. Thanks Buddy.
