A wonderful Wednesday!

Where are we today ?
Plattsville Ontario
        Well its gonna be an awesome day today and we are in the area until friday morning. So after some coffees and computing call ma and invited her out for supper this afternoon. She likes to get out and about and can still drive. She is always looking for places to go so let's have her come here.
        Picked up a few groceries then back here to mow a bit more lawn, just the back 1/4 of John and Lea's property. So about noon when all the dew was dried I hopped on the trusty John Deere and headed out. Put her (or him) in high gear and and round and around 90 minutes later finally all done their 5 acre, just before the clouds rolled in and lots thunder and it started to rain.
see our coach 1/2 way down the lot?
         Right on time Ma arrived at 4 o'c lock to visit while I prepared a nice pork loin roast to grill on our Weber Q-100. Had a nice visit, chat for a while as the Weber did it's job, boiled up some mini potatoes and cooked some fresh carrots.
nice day for a visit
Pork roast done to perfection
        Whipped up a bit of pork gravy, abit of apple sauce of the side and we had anice tasty supper.
        Now for desert (Ma likes desert) cleaned some fresh strawberries, a sugarless Peak Frean short bread cookies topped with a bit of dream whip.
nice light desert
        All done at a reasonable time, Ma heads back home (gott feed Tigger, her cat) and we relaxed once again in the shade with our books on a nice summer evening.
        Soon time to call it a night.
         Thanks once again for dropping by, hope you had an awesome day too!

    Hi George

    We BBQ pork roasts all the time, one question how do you make your pork gravy, it looks so good.

    1. Just a few drippings off the roast while I let it rest, but use a Clubhouse Pork Gravy Mix, quite tasty.

  3. Looked like a nice dinner and visit with your Mom. You and Suzy are sure staying busy, The pickles she did yesterday sure looked good.

    1. We can be busy doing nothing, doesn't take much.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
