Some nights we have a bonfire. Some nights we just sit and watch the chickens and their silly antics.
Today we are having strange weather. One minute it is bright and sunny and the next it is windy and cloudy and threatening rain and storms.
But we managed to get some good stuff done.
A couple of garden beds filled and ready to plant.
I took lots of pictures of the flowers in bloom and the gardens.
I also made one of the best meals I think I have ever made.
Please enjoy the pictures and the recipe for the fabulous BBQ ribs I made.

|Harvesting Radishes for our stir fry. The greens go to the chickens!|
|Radish, eaten by something, goes to the chickens now!|
|I made my own Brown sugar substitute. 1 Tbsp Molasses mixed well with 1/8 cup Pyure|
|Now mix the spices together with the "brown sugar"|
|Use the best ribs you can find!|
|Slather with your dry rub all over.|
|Get all the nooks and crannies.|
|Sear the meat on your grill, about 3 to 5 min. per side.|
|Love those grill marks....|
|Once it is seared on both sides, move to your top rack or an indirectly heated area of your grill. Make sure there is something under the meat to catch all the drips.|
|Once the meat is almost done, slather the meaty side with your BBQ sauce of choice, cover and grill for about 5 min. more.|
