Wonderful Wednesday.....

We had a full schedule today.  We are getting ready for our trip to Dominica so Frank got all the scuba gear packed this morning.  While he was doing that I threw together a slow cooker dinner because I knew we would be out running errands all day.

I started out by making a BBQ Sauce

I placed 3 short ribs in the slow cooker and poured the sauce on top.
Set it to low and we were out the door.

We met my friend, Mary Agnes, at the grocer where we buy our stock for the food pantry.  We loaded up 2 truck loads of food and then headed to the pantry.  Thankfully, the 8th grade class was available and helped us to unload, carry down, mark and stock all the groceries.  What was going to be a 3 hour job was done in 55 minutes!

Since we had some extra time now.  Frank and I walked around town.  It was a gorgeous day, nearly 70*and the sun was sparkling off of the water.  We stopped in a store that features products made by local artists and artisans and picked up a housewarming gift for a friend.  She is having a home party tonight and it is the first time I will have been to her new home.

Then, we got an ice cream and just strolled along, window shopping and enjoying the weather, while we ate it.  This was followed by a run to the bank, to the hangar to drop off the rent check and to the farm store for dog and chicken feed.  The baby chicks are in already.  I don't need any new chicks this year but probably will be ready for some next year.  We bought our little Miss a tire swing shaped like a horse.  I can't wait to see her face when Frank hangs it in the tree for her.

When we got home the house smelled heavenly.  I put some rice on to boil and opened a can of sweet corn.  In half an hour, we were sitting at the table enjoying these short ribs.  Perfect recipe folks. Easy, Peasy and Delicious.

I had a few minutes before I leave to get Kirsten and head to the party so I thought I would share the recipe.  You're welcome.
