Happy New Year to All My New Friends

I just wanted to wish all my new friends a very Happy New Year! Since I started this blog in July, I've been overwhelmed with the kindness and caring of virtual strangers. Never in my wildest dream, would I have expected to meet so many wonderful ,and diverse, a group of people! You've taken me on a wonderful ride, all around the world, and I've enjoyed every single second of it. So...Here's to all of you (raising my glass of champagne) for allowing me to take a journey with you in this thing we call life. I pledge to be there for you, help when I can, pray with you, cry with you, but most of all, to laugh with you and continually send you all love, joy, peace and happiness. To You....from Me............

PostScript on The Experimental Pork Loin

Here's the Experimental Pork Loin...Looks can be deceiving though...a little too tough. I believe next time it needs to be cooked either wrapped or covered in the oven or on the pit or smoker. I'll finish it tomorrow so it'll be fork tender. It needs at least another hour to an hour and a half in the oven. SO, until tomorrow, have a safe and warm night...did I tell you it's almost 70 here again today?? Yesterday it was in the low 50's....Geez...

Work and Play

This is what's happening around our house today...Work it Little Girl !!!
She has Always got time to stop and pose for a picture !! And yes, that underwear is Rolled, not folded! (old service trick. Makes for a lot more room in the drawer).
Or a little wrestling match...My money was on the Grandbabies !!
I do believe I just won five bucks !!! LOL

William and Mamma. Two peas in a pod!

Well, I don't really know what y'all are doing today. We've been working on getting the laundry finished up for the new week. Hubby is cooking..Good Man that he is...a pork loin roast. He has some new technique, he read about for the recipe, where you cook it, in the oven, for one hour at 475degrees. If y'all want to try it, it's 7 minutes a pound at 475dgrs. THEN, you just leave it in the oven for 3 more hours. DO NOT open the oven all. Hubby put a thermometer(electronic) in the roast before cooking to make sure it reaches the correct temp. (180 interior temp). We've never done one this way so wait till I report back on how it turned out. If the meat still remains tough, I'll let you know.

Other than that, we're not up to anything newsworthy. I've popped the 1944 version of Sherlock Holmes into the DVD player, The House of Fear . I love these old ones. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.

It's back to work tomorrow. Maybe the calls will slack off after lunch. If they do, and the guys have caught up with all the calls, we may close early. Never know what it's going to be like. Usually there's lots of unstops of commodes and sinks. There's Always some man or woman who puts potato peels down the garbage disposer!! Or grease or celery. Oh well, bring it on!

Y'all have a peaceful night and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
