Where are we today ?Great night for sleeping again not too cold about 40f nice and cozy under our antique heavy felt comforter ( I call it the 100 pound comforter, crawl under it and ya don't move lol..). Looks like it's on now our bed until late next spring. Overcast pretty well all day , but the sun did peak out a couple times for a few minutes. even a couple light rain showers. Between the showers I did get a few walkabouts town and trip to the grocery store for a few items.

And right after lunch I prepared supper for tonight. Rolled ribs and pig tails. For a good friend and our financial advisor. Two of his most favorite foods that I made in my restaurant. Whenever I made them I had to phone him and he would drive out from Kitchener 20 minutes away for a meal. I don't think he ever missed them. So we invited him for dinner tonight and we will feast (he usually takes us out for a good lunch) Then we will discuss our funds which we do a couple times a year.
I can do these on our Weber Q but with the cool weather and long cooking time it is easier to cook inside plus we get the bonus heat from the oven heating our coach. Not to mention the aroma we are smelling all afternoon. Suzie went to visit her mom while I babysat the oven and got some nice reading time in.
The pig tails take about 3-4 hours in the oven and the rolled ribs 2-3 hours to be done perfectly. Roasted BBQ pigtails are a delicacy in the Kitchener area I fell in love with them when I first moved to the area from Toronto 45 years ago. Now with my high cholesterol I have dropped my levels dramatically over the last year. Our healthy eating habits have paid off. So I guess we can cheat once in a while then back at it again, my levels are really low now, my weight is not a problem after loosing 50 lbs, I actually have to eat a bit more to maintain it.

We had the Thanksgiving feasts and to top it off tonights dinner all so very tasty. Good thing with the moderation we did not gain any weight. But will get back to our healthy eating habits again and our tummies will feel much better.
Thanks again for stopping by, we both had a fun day just doing a bit of cooking and reading.
