***the Sun Oven folks do not know I exist nor that I have made an idol of their oven***
This week is one I'm ready to put in the record books. Don't mean to complain, mind you. Especially in the light of all the innocents who were wounded and killed in Tucson. Those families have had one helluva week-mine is but a gnat bite in comparison.
Moved my mom into an extended care (nursing) facility this week. (Hi Mom!) She reads this blog, so I won't badmouth the old
Before I went to the nursing home, I placed some pork ribs in the Sun Oven. Just put a dry rub on them and placed them in this glass dish. Didn't put any moisture in the dish-just the ribs.
|Doesn't this dish remind you of your Grandmother? It does me..love ya, Lucy!|
|The ribs safely placed in the space ship solar pod.|
While admiring the juicy ribs, the highly interactive wiener dog dropped a prized rock at my feet she had dug up just for me.
|Don't know why there's a yellow parking stripe on my back driveway, but there it is. Odd.|
|Please do NOT tell her dentist she is playing with rocks!|
|This is not meant to be a Doxy anus shot. You are to notice the flying leaves and how intently she is pouncing on the rock.....ears flapping!|
|Notice the dusty snout? She rolls the rock with her pointy nose.|
|Sorry about the crappy focus. Sometimes the grass is very BAD and must be punished simply for being near her beloved rock. She tears it out by the roots and flings it side to side. It must be taught a lesson and stay away from her precious boulder!|
Oh, and you must see how the ribs turned out. We'd already eaten a few of them when I snapped this picture.
These would have been perfect with some sauerkraut, if you ask me. The Texan thinks sauerkraut is nasty, so we didn't have it. Made a fresh salad and Pioneer Woman's Dilly Bread (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/01/jans-dilly-bread/) as the side dishes. Mmmmm....food....another highly effective beta-blocker.
Press forth into the glorious weekend, bloggy friends. Have fun.
Juicy, pork rib love to all.
