Good Eats and Making Progress

Some advances have been made with the “to do” list such as the outside decorations are all packed away now and the tree has only 1/3 of the ornaments left on it.  I finally uploaded some photos I took last week but before I could really do any editing a storm came through and we were without power for a few hours.  Fortunately I had just started the browning of some beef for chili when this happened so at least I had a tiny bit of heat and was able to make dinner in the dark (well, I did have a flashlight) as well as boil water for some hot tea to drink.  I learned how spoiled I had become from having hot water fast with the electric kettle after having to wait for water to boil in a pot on the stove top.  Slow….

So mentioning eating, last week we went to eat here and I was one happy Memphis style rib eating customer as was DH.  In spite of the name of the one sauce, it really wasn’t that hot.  A bit of a tingle but not very devilish.  But they had me at the big mason jar of freshly squeezed lemonade and the homemade BBQ potato chips.

    That is a fantastic name though, Devil’s Spit. I’d buy it just for the name. I once had “Scorned Woman”. It was really hot.

    Looks like a fun place. Nice image. I’ll have to go and check your blog; it sounds like the power is out.

      The power came back in the nick of time (meaning before the house got too cold) and it was a tasty place 🙂

        Good thing! I’m not a big fan of power outages.

        Worst outage I’ve ever been in was after a huge storm and we were without power for over a week…in the summer!

        Yeah, we went ten days once. It’s romantic and fun for a few hours. Once you get cold and can’t shower, it’s a pain.

        We went to a friends house that was far away from the storm damage and showered and did laundry at her house. But a cold shower in the summer by candlelight worked too. Eventually we had to find a hotel it was too much.

    Oh my – gulps – a barbeque joint with devil’s spit. You won’t be mad if I don’t visit there right… you know for obvious reasons – XOXO – Bacon

      I’ll sneak you out some of the BBQ chips 😉

        Heads up quick.. chips? Did you say BBQ chips? Now that is something I can wrap my piggy lips around. I knew I loved you ❤ XOXO – Bacon

        They bring the chips out to you to use as a sampling medium for all of the sauces as in put a bit on a chip and see if you like the sauce before putting it on your lunch. They were SO good!

        Licks lips. That sounds like a great place…. I could go for some chip sampling. I just don’t want to be their guest of honor if you know what I mean – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I tent to avoid ordering ribs when dining out — unless at a rib joint. Well-slathered ribs can prove to be a hard to deal with but, like slurping at a pho restaurant, making a mess of oneself is to be expected at a rib joint . And I do my best to fit in at both places. 🙂

      They had other good eats besides ribs but why bother 😉 and we managed to stay neat other than fingers!
