What's for dinner Saturday?

Tonight we're having spare ribs, green beans with little red potatoes and glazed carrots. This is Harry's DD's last day with us :-( I have the ribs cooking at a low temp.now,since we don't usually eat until around 7. I just rub them with S&P and garlic powder, wrap them tightly in foil and put on a rack above a baking sheet and cook for 2-1/2 hours. They usually turn out tender using that method.

What are you having for dinner?

Zoe's for my usual: spinach rollups and braised white beans.

No one anywhere around was busy cause our two big college games are out of town. Easy in and out to eat today.

Those ribs sound delicious Patti. Vannie and her husband came to visit at the motor home. Then they took us on a tour of the area and we stopped for late lunch at this wonderful restaurant in Longview. There was all kinds of seafood on the menu so it was hard to decide what to eat.

I had large shrimp stuffed with crab, baked potato, coleslaw and before it was delivered they brought delicious crisp bread. Also a tray of corn relish, pickled okra, sweet pickles and some cheese butter. Man we ate so much we were stuffed when we left.

With all the great restaurants around here we would be rolling everywhere if we lived here. I told Vannie I need to start a folder and keep a list of all the restaurants as she posts about them at the Meeting House.

We are having a wonderful time here. Will be moving again on Monday morning.

I had a late lunch as I was so busy today in my kitchen. So for my supper I just had a glass of milk.

I cooked whole wheat noodles, drained and added a jar of Ragu alfredo sauce. I then stirred in the meatballs I'd made earlier. I also had steamed broccoli, and a thin slice of homemade bread.

I'd have loved to gone out for seafood like Nita.

Glenda, I have your recipe for the braised beans--now I just have to remember to try them :-)

Nita, I think we're all envious of your lunch and time with friends. Everything sounds delicious, especially that cheese butter. Woo hoo! Have a safe trip home, friend.

Raven, what a bummer to have DH working on a weekend. Enjoy the pizza with a good book or a girlie movie!

Bless your heart, Sue. You're a good mom!

Oooh,Shirley, that sounds yummy. I want meatballs!!!!
