What's Cooking?

 This is what was cooked for our dinner party last night.
It's an Allen Brothers USDA Prime Bone-in Rib Roast.
 We had our next door neighbors as well as another
couple from our 'hood over to share this hunk of meat.
 Changing the photo to take on a vintage look.
 The table setting was simple.   I pulled out out 'big boy'
steak knifes for the occasion.

 Wilson insisted I make popovers for dinner.
I had intentions of taking a photo of the baked popover
but I got extremely busy in the kitchen.
'Dinner favors' for each guest to take home.  
The little watering cans were on sale at Hobby Lobby.  
Each was filled with a mixture of M&M's and Snowcaps.  
 Checking to see if it's done.  Wilson tried a new way of cooking
this hunk of meat which came out perfectly.
 It was yummy!
 Also served with dinner ... 
Mixed garden salad, smashed potato's, the above pictured
 white corn cut off the cob, green beans, popover's, hush
puppies and steak sauce.  Dessert was fresh baked
chocolate chip cookies with a side of ice cream.
 Tuesday night I went upstairs and noticed how hot it
was which is never a good sign.  It must have been
90 degrees in my sewing room because the hall temp
read 85.  So we put in a call to our heating/ac service
company and they came out Wednesday afternoon.
Of course we were told our units are 'going out of date'
and basically parts are no longer available.  We all know
what that means so the guy re-set the unit and showed
Wilson how to do it if it should go out again.  I have
a feeling we will be spending big bucks soon on 
two new units.  There goes my fabric shopping $'s!
 Tamera spotted two fawns in our yard last night.  This is
a first for seeing them actually in our yard.  
 My long camera lens was upstairs so this is the 
best photo I could get.
 From our garden ... the limelight hydrangea with the pink
 flowers from our neighbor's Heidi & Scott. 
 Playing with the filters in my photo editing software.
The candle holders and the bowl the flowers are in
belonged to my mom.  I always loved this set
[especially the candle holders].  I was so happy
she gave them to me when she moved.
We will be staying in for the next several days due to the
extreme heat.  This will give me time to finish up a quilt
top I started with the Woodland Wonder's fabric and plan
the second one with collection.  


  1. The rib roast looks so good. Looks like the new way worked out perfectly. Hope you are going to be relaxing indoors like us during this heatwave. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a great day.

  2. Dinner looks delicious. You always set such a beautiful table too.
    Oh no on the AC. It's crazy how they don't really seem to make things to be repaired anymore. We just had to replace a rotisserie at work because the parts for it are obsolete and you can't get them any more. The unit is maybe 15 years old but trash.

  3. Can I come for dinner next time? Yummy. Happy Friday.
