It is raining here, the driveway gate is closed, outdoor lights are off, and Teddy is still at the dog-sitter's house -- so it's all about me tonight -- and that two pound beef rib I brought home from Louis Mueller's BBQ, lovingly wrapped and packed in a cooler.

If I can manage to delay my carnivore cravings long enough, I'll take a picture.

Oh Med, you have to share!! The adorable look on that sweet face is heart melting!


We're warming up leftover Pozole Verde for supper and sadly we don't expect any trick or treaters. I used to love the little ones.

I got a bonus on this week’s paycheck, so I treated myself to a pound of red shrimp - $8.99 at Smith’s. EZ peel (deveined with shells on). They’re poached and in the fridge, and I’m gonna eat most of ‘em. I got a rotisserie chicken for Mark. He might want a few shrimp; we’ll see!

Actually, I might only eat half tonight, and have a po’ boy for lunch tomorrow.

I didn't keep count of the trick or treaters, but I know it was over 50; one group alone had eight kids. I gave out candy till I ran out, then turned off the porch light, came in and started reheating leftover meaty spaghetti sauce. We'll have that with cheese-filled tortellini and toasted sweet potato-onion bread I made over the weekend.

New neighborhood so didn't know what to expect. Got about 7 or 8 kids. Have tons of candy left since our old neighborhood had about 100 each year. Since I didn't know how busy I'd be with candy I made a pot of soup. 14 (really 7 doubled) can soup was really good! First time I made it and we all liked it alot.

Okay, I heated up the beef rib from Louis Mueller's. I did it in the microwave, because that is how they told me to re-heat it. I ate half of it. OMG, it was like beef butter -- that tender.

We have some places here in Dallas that do good beef BBQ, but not like Louis Mueller's. They have every award you can get, including the first ever BBQ joint with a James Beard Award.

Not sure my food porn (below) does it justice. Oh, that bone is 13-inches long. It weighed 2 pounds, 3 ounces as photographed.

Oh my gosh, what a sweet little pug picture, Med.

Casey, looks great! I'd love to chew the meat off of one of those bones.

I made a pot of split pea with ham this afternoon, with some corn bread. I only had around 30 littles trick or treating this evening, as there are some activities out at the fairgrounds - most parents around here take the littles to organized events these days.
