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.
I know that sauce and yeah! it is 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!
Take you time, the tree isn’t going anywhere – lol!
And that’s the point! lol
