Well, we had ribs on Saturday that were cooked by the big guy who works at Winn-Dixie. I gotta say they were pretty darned tasty, which you wouldn't expect to get from some guy standing outside the grocery store. But they had a nice hot flavor--Cajun? dry red pepper?--and not a whole lot of sauce. Also not a great deal of meat, which was something of a letdown. But they were good anyway. Reba also made a gigantic mess of mustard greens. I don't know why, exactly, other than she seemed to have gotten an itch only mustard could scratch. They were REALLY good, although they did need a bit of hot sauce to have been perfect.

Yesterday was incredibly hot, so what better way to have lunch than to fire up the grille! Big hamburgers, some hotdogs, and a big pile of Polish sausage. And for some reason, I didn't bring any of it for lunch today, and I am quite angry with myself. Also part of the mix was a big pot of corn on the cob--yet another craving Miss Reba has been suffering from. "Hey, this is good, sugar--what kind of corn is this?"

Good heavens. You didn't BOIL that corn, did you?


Soak for at least 1/2 hour in water, then grill on direct medium heat for about 25 minutes, turning every 6 minutes or so.

You'll never eat it boiled again.

No, I didn't boil it. Reba did, and for my sake and yours, you better hide, lest she think you're casting stones at her cooking abilities!

Just tell her my way is Kosher.

Uh-uh-uhhh--you brought it up, YOU have to tell her! ::runs away to hide::

I had hie on down to KC this weekend. Being a man of some experence I then did a pilgrimage to both Cate's and Arthur Bryant's for more BBQ than should be allowed. Heck, I even et the slaw so you know it was some good food.
