Gail, your ribs ought to be just fine cooked "low and slow" - even 200 would be alright. That's the way I cook most cuts of pork that I buy (pork butt, , country ribs, etc.). Also do the tougher cuts of beef that way too. They come out beautiful.
It's been cold/rainy and windy here all day today. I did walk this morning, but just here in my park to be close to home. Darn near froze to death.... It's actually not so cold temp. wise (51) but we've got a bone chilling wind going on... Sure would like to see summer!!

i've got some ribs to cook today. i rubbed and marinaded them last night and them i am going to cook them in the oven at 225 for 3 or 4 hours. i just can never get them like in a restaurant, so, i keep trying different things. i don't care for the texture from a crock pot and i've never cooked them lower than 300 degrees Celsius in the oven. so, they are now in the oven and i will see if i can find a sugar free bbq sauce recipe.
Woubbie, my niece, who is in 7th grade, plays piano, viola, clarinet, and something else. She plans to know how to play 10 instruments by the time she gets out of high school. Her sister, who is in 4th grade this year, will probably be in all the choral stuff. Their poor mom! I keep telling her she should get one of the rooms in the basement soundproofed, but she insists she likes to hear the kids practice. A real masochist.
Hi, all. Trying to get more stuff off my desk and out of my brain. Not succeeding very well. Le sigh.
Tonight is the last concert of the high school spring concert season. It's the Concert Band* performance, so I get to see both boys play together. It's the elder one's last show in high school - in another couple of months he'll be off to college summer band camp!
Have a great rest of the day!
*Already saw the Jazz Ensembles, Music in our Schools night, PMEA, Symphonic Band, and Chorus. Thank heaven neither one is in Orchestra!

January is Shiny Sink Month. February is Declutter Month.
It's supposed to be raining here, but it seems kind of bright out there like the usual cloud layer is kinda thin! I walked the boys this morning, and am off to a mellowish Wednesday. I won't mind if the rain stays away.
I think my boss, who has been in Oregon at our facility there, is coming back today and that always creates a little ripple of chaos, so I'm going to try to churn out some bits and pieces of work before I get derailed.
Tonight I'm meeting a good friend at a steakhouse to get caught up with each other - I started a new job right about the same time she dove into tax season and I still have her birthday gift for her and her birthday's in February! I'm looking forward to seeing her and catching up, but I've had plans for every night this week and I want some quiet time to myself. I think that might be Friday.

DD wanted to ride her bike to school 2day. About a 1.5 mile ride. Knees were aching lol. Gotta get a gel seat. My bum us sore lol. Yesterday at work had to evacuate the building (i work at a nursing home) I think between yesterday n today I've gotten more exercise than I've had in a while.

Good morning, It rained here last night. Today and the rest of the week should be a bit cooler, in the high 60's and low 70's, though still quite humid.
Budgetmaw, that tea combo sounded terrible with the mint tea. Isn't it awful when you think something will be great, and we use a wrong ingredient and it turns out terrible...
Hubby and I go to the senior center for lunch today,. We usually go about 3 or 4 times a week for lunch. Then on Wed. we have a small knitting and crochet group. Though we have cancelled it for the summer. One day, a lady brought her spinning wheel and spun some silk yarn...this lady dyes and spins her yarn, then she knits it up...amazing.
My daddy's coming for a visit today!!!! But I have to get in the car and drive from one side of the state to the other to get my work done! So I'm putting my kids to work dh is sick do he don't Be able to do much! And I'm go to work!!!
They had forecasted rain and thunderstroms and possible severe weather again last night, but it doesn't look like we got any of that.
Off to the Senior Center to play bridge this morning. I've never been there for anything, let alone playing bridge. Should be interesting and, I hope, fun. Then probably some errands since I'll be on that side of town anyway, then home to do some paperwork and maybe some gardening.
I made a mug of my favorite tea this morning - Bengal Spice Tea with a cinnamon stick, a bit of splenda and some coconut milk. Unfortunately, the tea bag that I thought was Bengal Spice apparently isn't. It seems to be some sort of mint or something. Not a great combination.
