Happy Father's Day to everyone! We do not have kids, but we do have a dog, so we celebrate dog-mother and dog-father's day. I am making a special meal for T tonight- Oven Baked BBQ Ribs and Sweet Restaurant Slaw, both from this site, along with cheesy mashed potatoes. I have never made ribs before, so I read all 120 reviews, and they are starting to smell wonderful! The smallest package I could get was 4 pounds, so I expect to use leftovers later in the week. I spent $37.73 for ribs, ketchup, cabbage, onions, vinegar, and beer and wine. Way over my $15/day budget, but I should be able to make it up later in the week.
Tonight is the last night of apartment/dog sitting, so I also wanted to make something that I can't make on the boat. Our oven isn't big enough for a rack of ribs, and having it on for 3 hours would make the boat ridiculously hot. This apartment is on the North side with good breezes.
I made my cheese butt macaroni and cheese last night, and it was fabulous! We had a friend up for dinner- she'd never been to this apartment- and as soon as she walked in and saw the view, she said "I wish I'd have brought my camera!" It's funny, every place here has a fantastic view, and each is better than the last. (She has an amazing view from her apartment as well.)
T and I took the afternoon off the other day and went to one of our favorite beaches, Secret Harbor, which of course, has great frozen drinks to go with the view!
Have a great day everyone!
