It has been a long time since I turned on the oven. I have had a large slab of pork rings in the freezer. The temps outside are very chilly for the past couple of days. So last night I took out the slab to thaw and just stuck them in the oven on low today. After several hours, I checked on them. Falling off the bone. Put some BBQ sauce on them, baked for 30 minutes more and they are delicious. Enough incentive to turn the oven on more often.

I'll do that. No, he isn't able to be there. His dad is in Cornwall, Ontario, about 100 km from here. But, his dad is not conscious and isn't expected to regain consciousness.

Thank you PF and taxlady.

I'm sorry to hear about Stirling. Just after my Uncle Bob was flown from the NY hospital to one in PA, he somehow acquired pneumonia and had a large amount of fluid in his lungs.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, taxlady!

Oh, TL, I am so sorry. Hugs and prayers to you and Stirling.

taxlady, I'm sorry to hear your news. Hope Stirling is OK. It's a hard thing.

Thanks Alix. We're still waiting for final word. I gave him a hug from PF and burst into tears. He seemed to need that hug. It isn't unexpected, but who knows how it will hit Stirling when it is official.

Of course, there is a slim chance the old fart will pull through. I say, we're off to Cornwall immediately if he does. We raised a glass or two to him tonight.
