Books, potatoes, and ribs

By , May 4, 2008 10:52 pm

Went to the trade days on 431 this morning and went into Flamingos to the book stall. Talked for a bit with Lloyd, the bookseller and then got to digging through boxes and the shelves and ended up with a fair number of interesting books. Talked to a few other folks there and then sat in the truck and ate some sandwich’s for lunch that Cat had fixed before we left this morning. After eating we walked across to Bill’s flea market and got a few more books from a vendor that was packing up for the day. Most everyone was doing or had done the same so we left and went to Gadsden to Apple A Day and got some more Ribose as I will finish my second bottle either tomorrow or the next day. From there went to the Gadsden Mall and walked around for a bit. Been a while since either of us had been in there. Few folks and even fewer buying anything. Left and came back home by way of Foodland, where they had a sale on country style ribs. Should never shop while hungry. πŸ™„ Got about 8 pounds. πŸ˜‰ Came on home and started the charcoal and put the ribs and sauce in the 14″ dutch oven and about 9 pounds of potatoes in the 12″ one. Put the charcoal under and on them to cook and came in and fixed a cast iron bean pot of baked beans, honey, salsa, ketchup, pepper, dried onion and chives. When the potatoes were done put the bean pot on the coals the 12″ oven had been on and let it cook for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently to keep it from burning. Moved the coals back from the pot about 15 minutes into the cooking and let them simmer for the next 15. Was all done and quite tasty. Now we have cooked food for quite a few more meals. Froze about 2/3’s of the remaining ribs and will do likewise with about half of the potatoes. Don’t know what it is but there is something about cooking food in the dutch ovens on the charcoal verses using the oven that makes stuff taste completely different. I’ve done it in the oven but it just doesn’t taste the same. Guess its the coals against the cast iron that gives a different kind of heat. Or something. What ever it sure is good… πŸ˜‰

Gonna call it a night. Till tomorrow…
