You are a good grandma, Cheryl! My niece and nephew wear me out just watching them. I don't know how their parents do it. (Oh wait, they're 10 years younger. Never mind.)

That does make a difference!

I'll have him from 3-4:30 for the rest of the week, I can handle that.

Cheryl, when he's grandpa himself, he'll be telling them stories about his terrific grandma. Nothing's better than that thought.

Our dinner turned out delicious tonight. I made a comment on TS's thread.

Cheryl, if we don't see you around here tomorrow, we'll just figure you're still recovering from your day with Tyler.

I ended up making the mac-and-cheese, too. By the time we were done eating, we still had enough leftovers for another dinner - or two.

I sure hope yours were as good as ours, RR. I had rubbed and rested mine Saturday, then tossed them in the oven on 400 for about 20 minutes a side after I took our Saturday fish out of the oven and it was still hot. Today I tossed them into the slow cooker with onions on the bottom and a bottle of sauce all over, cooked them on low for 6 hours. Fall-off-the-bone tender, they were.

Publix had puff pastry sheets and shells on BOGO last week so we got 2 of each. Decided to use 1 package of shells last night and make sort of a pot-pie, with beef bourguignon type filling using some of the leftover prime rib in the freezer from Christmas dinner. Did a mirepoix of onions, carrots, half of a celery stalk and some dried porcini in a mix of bought 1/3 chicken broth, 2/3 beef broth, some worchestershire, thyme, S and P and a little bottle of merlot. Cooked that for a while to reduce, then used the immersion blender. Steamed some carrots, pearl onions and the rest of the celery stalk until almost tender. Dry fried some criminis. When liquid was reduced enough to make a gravy, added in all the veges, cooked for a few, then added the chopped up prime rib and cooked until that was just heated thru. It came out pretty good.

Looks delish, CG. With both you and RR posting about ribs, I'm going to have to get some. It's been way too long since I've had them. Yum.

Well, mine in no way looked as good as the ribs made by Cooking Goddess. CG, mine tasted OK, but I didn't leave them in the crock pot as long as I should have, so they could have definitely been more tender. Next time I'll come over to your house for dinner instead.

Thanks for the compliment, rr. You're more than welcome for dinner, since I tend to cook for (at least) 4 every night. Not sure they're so good they're worth the cross-country drive, though.
