Something just doesn’t seem right about this. How can DRIED cranberries be “Whole & JUICY?” But don’t get me started.
Couple of hours after going to be last night I had to pee (because: Old Guy) but climbing out of bed hurt my back so much I was tempted to just crawl to the pisser and back. Even contemplated (that means “thought about”) having SWMBO take me to the ER cause I just plain hurt! But I went back to bed instead.
At 0600 when I woke up I sat right up, climbed out of bed, and had no more than a twinge in my back. Been that way most of the day. Go figure.
Date Day! Took SWMBO to the teriyaki place in Gig Harbor for lunch/dinner. Stopped by Walmart for a new Roku (since the one built into the big tv doesn’t want to work anymore). Then stopped by St. Vinnies where she bought 15 old cd’s for $3. (Which I now get to rip for her. I don’t mind. Most of the time I enjoy doing things for her.)
And that was Date Day. Simple dedicated time to spend with each other. Going on 37 years now.
Before we headed out I took my new tractor out back and started working on the path/trail. I think this thing is going to work out fine. As long as I don’t cut too deep I can move a lot of dirt. Nice. Need some plastic drainage pipe …
Freeze dried some pulled pork riblet things. Made them up as pulled pork sandwiches by slow cooking them in Dr. Pepper. Ran it an extra cycle but it all still feels slightly oily; so I think it’ll only be good for a year or two on the shelf even with Oxygen absorbers. I don’t add the BBQ sauce until it’s time to re-hydrate so all that flavor is sucked into the meat.
Tomorrow is “meat” day and I’ll be cutting up and cooking 8 large chicken breasts, a whole chicken rendered and pulled apart, and will BBQ (well, Grill) the rest of those riblet thingies and get everything on trays and into the freezer. More taters to do before they go TU. Oh, I did a couple of slices of German Chocolate Cake that didn’t turn out too bad. Won’t be “re-hydrating” them though.
Got SWMBO’s new Roku up and running for her. She’s been Jonesing for This Old House.
