Sunshine here is perfect, good deal on food and met fellow Bloggers.

Where are we today ?
        Another sunny day here. This is the desert, cold nights warm sunny days, just the way we like it. Temp up to the low 60'sf but wonderful in the sunshine, this is what we really enjoy. No wind for a couple days so is amazing here.
        Quick trip into town for a few food stuffs then home by 10 am. Found a cake mix in our cupboard that needed to be used up. So whipped it up and made a batch of Carrot and raisin loaves. Perfect for us will freeze most of them. 
They are yummy!
        And while shopping the other day picked up a deal on pork ribs at Fry's in Yuma. Check the pics below we will get 2 very hearty meals out of this. Maybe go back for another package before Friday. Love the price! $5.51USD. ($7.65 Canadian still a great deal) One of the ways we make our Canadian dollar stretch and enjoy some great meals.

       Now to enjoy a very warm afternoon in the sun enjoying our e-readers.
        Then at 3 pm have fellow Bloggers and followers stopped in to meet us and visit. Ray and Cindy and their puppy Penny so cute!

Such a sweetie she is
       We had a wonderful visit with them for an hour, could have talked forever such a great couple. Hope to see then again at Bloggerfest.

           I had put our ribs on the Q about the time they got here, like to simmer then in foil and sauerkraut for a couple hours, makes the so tender, tasty and smell so good. For the recipe click here .
       Then out of the foil remove the sauerkraut and place them on our grill mat. (keeps the grill clean) Now slather with bbq sauce, brown sugar and spices to caramelize.
       Added to a tasty salad and fall off the bone good !
oh yeah love the ribs
        Then as that's done another great desert sunset, does it get much better for us? Think not we loving it.
       That was about it for our fun day and really hope yours was a good one too!
       Glad that you stopped on by.

  4. No wind is nice. It helps keep the dust down. Cool nights are fine if the days are sunny and warm.

  5. I never make a cake for us because it is to much. What a great idea. I have that exact pan. I see some calories coming.

  6. Hard to beat a slab of pork ribs and their sale price is a great deal, but their regular price sure is high. I don't think I've ever seen them above $4.99.
