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.
