More fun in the sun in OHIO!

Where are we today ?
        Sunshine and gonna be  nice day again! Considering where we are the weather is awesome! Sunshine, not much wind and temperatures close to 60f. So after a few walkabouts and enjoy a brisk morning we had a bite to eat for lunch.
        Then we head on downtown to tour about a bit. Nice old buildings here and a town square.
         Then we stopped at Aldies to check out some deals there for food. Picked up a couple of thngs then next door to the Good Will store where Suzie picked up a new (to her) blouse for herself. Three bucks.

        Next stop on our tour was the was the Bookmark Bookstore to exchange some of our gently read books. We traded 18 of our paperbacks for 9 books we have not read, good deal here.
         Now we just toured a bit more and found Community Markets, a small town grocery store that also has the "State Liquor store" inside as well. Every state and county has different laws and does keep us busy trying to keep up to date.
       Then heading back home we passed  this inviting sign. A drive thru BEER CAVE!! Now have never seen one of these before! I do think every town needs one of these, maybe? At a gas station too! Fill your car with gas and grab some beer to go? HMM.......
         Back home the sun is shinning and our campsite has no wind. So with Temps about 65f it feels like about 80f.Shorts, t-shirts for a couple hours  and is awesome. The pool is inviting but way to many noisy kids for our liking today (and probably most of the weekend). So we will enjoy this great outside weather while we can.
wonderful sunny day
        For supper tonight I picked up a huge slab of Baby Back ribs on sale $8.42 enough for us to get 2 good meals out of. So fired up our Weber wrapped then in foil with sauerkraut for about an hour with two baked potatoes while enjoying our books.
also enjoyed blues skies too
after a bit. BBQ sauce on the ribs,
add some asparagus for a couple minutes
now we have an awesome, tasty and cheap supper
        Then a little later I made a couple strawberry shortcakes for desert. Strawberries on sale $1.68 a lb another great deal!

        So did we need all this great food? Not really but all was on sale and I did portion this stuff so we can spread it out over a few days.
        That was it for another fun  day in Ohio. pool pretty busy today with lots kids, will wait for things to slow down a bit here before going back.
         Hey just wanna say thanks for coming on back for a visit. Hope you had a great day too!

  1. I love the old town squares. Grew up in a town with one. Back in the day, we would walk to town and sit in the park...

    Drive thru beer service....that's right up there with liquor stores on the interstate in New Hampshire!

    Have a super Saturday!

  2. Something about the old towns and their buildings and squares I just love. Got to try the ribs wrapped in foil with Sauerkraut. No other pre cooking? and then just a short finish on the grill with sauce? Never seen a cold beer drive-thru either. Enjoyed your pic's

    1. No other pre cooking, just do for a least an hour low heat add some water to the foil so they don't dry out and seal tight.

    1. I shop often early in the day when you find good deals and ideas for supper.

  4. At 60f it even sounds like a heatwave compared to some other temperatures. At least the sun was shining a bit. That always helps.
