I wish more weekends were like this!
New recipes intrigue me but I very seldom actually get (take) a chance to try one. I decided to try a couple out of Bon Appetit. But it’s really no fun to share three experimental racks of ribs and six pretty cups of Chocolate Mousse with just one, so we invited a couple of couples out to use as guinea pigs!
The ribs were a success, the cauliflower could use a little work and the mousse was outstanding. The company was over-the-top!
Saturday was finally nice after several days of wind and cold. So Leah and Kaitlin and I saddled up. Santa had brought a super-sized soccer ball which we bumped around a bit. After a couple of hours our toes were cold and our poor, out-of-shape ponies were glad to get back out into the pasture.
Sunday morning was lazy. I tried another new recipe for baked eggs. Not really a keeper. Then out to help feed hay.
The buggy mare always stays off a bit, but Zeke, Kaitlin’s horse (on the right), sort of thought that maybe coming up too close might mean another day’s ride!
Another new recipe – Ree Drummond’s Pulled Pork – and a short ride and yummy tuna melts curtisy of Kurtis.
Sounds like an ideal weekend to me, with the exception of some extra pounds added on!
