Well, my supper was a bust

It tasted like 2x4's. Don't ever buy beef short ribs without the bone in them, because you will rooooo the day. I said..roooooo!! The sauce was fantastic, but those riblets were as tough as leather. They tasted like plywood. I'm not knocking plywood, we all have it in our homes, but normally we don't partake of it at the dinner table. Gord was very polite,and said it didn't taste THAT bad, while I was trying to do the heimlich manoeuvre on him after his second bite. When he regained conciousness, we decided to eat the rice and veggies. Fortunately I had French vanilla ice-cream and bananas for dessert. I could have screwed up the whole meal! I tried to throw the rest of them away today. They didn't want to leave. They stuck to the bottom of the pot, and then with much prodding and swearing I steered them to the garbage. They fought me all the way. So, I took a cattle prode and shook them off. I swear, that's the truth.

Penny was mighty pissed. And as it turns out, she likes plywood. She followed the scent right to the garbage can. She stayed there and sat "pretty" in front of it until her paws got too cold and she had to come in. Pooooor Penny Plywood eater.

It's so cold here, and there will no end to it until the weekend.....I made spagetti tonight...you can't go wrong with that, can you? I don't know...I smell burnt plywood...........it must be my sinuses talking.

You know the "cold" I didn't want to talk about, it's just about gone. So, you can tune in again without the whining if you want to.

Spring seems so far away, but I look forward to it, and look forward to baling out the basement again. Now, that is sad.

I'm about all taxed out but wasn't so pooped that I couldn't smile about your plywood riblets.

We've got a chance for some frozen precipitation about mid-week, but I'd rather it turned Springish.

I bought some beef ribs last week (prepared) in the deli that weren't chewable. There oughta be a law against selling those.

I think that you mean "bailing" and not "baling". I believe "baling" is a whole other thing and it might just turn your blog X-rated. LOL

We were down in the 20's last night, but I bet that doesn't sound cold to you. Seeing frost on the grass I've worked so hard to protect ticked me off good, but I have heard it kills some of the bad stuff. What, I don't know!

I've never cooked shortribs, now I don't think I will! You're a riot! :)

Gawwwd dang it.... I sent each of you a very witty response, and THIS PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED came up... and booted it.

So, all I can say, is thanks for commenting. I don't know if this will show up...
