Oh man, it is not yet 8:30 am, and my house smells sinfully good. I've got the slow cooker going with some barbecued ribs . . . I've marinated them overnight, browned them in the oven, and now they'll cook about 8 hours in the slow cooker. Like most slow cooker recipes, the food is actually better a day later after it rests, so we'll have them for dinner Sunday evening.

When the pot of dog stew is done, I'm heading off for a bike ride, and then planning to spend some time on the beach reading The Old Man and the Boy (my third book for Maggie's Southern Reading Challenge. ) The day promises to be a warm one, and the Pacific has been especially warm for the last month or so.

Oh well, I can hear Nanners barking at something, so I'd better go . . . have a great Saturday!

I'm hungry--those ribs sound good!

I hope you enjoy The Old Man and the Boy. Ruark grew up across the river and down a bit from where I did (and about 50 years earlier), but I have fond memories of many similar experiences. If I remember correctly, he even talks about going to Masonboro Sound, which was just north of the Myrtle Grove Sound area where I lived from the summer before I started the 4th grade till I moved out in college. That's probably more than you wanted to know :)

Yes, those ribs do sound good indeed. I'm the only one in my household who enjoys food a day or two later. NO leftovers are safe here. Hope you enjoy your read and your Saturday.
