Frozen ~ Steve&Barb ~ Prime Rib


Good 19º morning.  Everything, and I mean everything is frozen!!! Brought in the hummingbird feeders and hopefully they will thaw fast. Birdies won't be happy.

I went out on the porch to take pictures of the frozen 'tundra' and there were 3 coyotes!!
The last one is the coyote who has been hanging out here for a year or more. Still limping.


A reminder re the Toys for Tots... Brian has the barrel in his office... State Farm, 1610 Allen Creek in Grants Pass. His phone 541-472-5201. If you have toys and can't get to GP I can pick them up. Just let me know.

 Last night's game....

On this date in 1975, Steve (ret. LASD) and Barbara Voors were united in holy wedlock. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! Your wedding was beautiful. Your girls, Alison Vanessa and Suzanne, are all beauties, as well as your baby granddaughter and grandsons. It is a privilege to be your friend! (Steve and Jerry were radio car partners at Temple) Love you guys. xo

A friend asked me about cooking prime rib..... here is a foolproof way, comes out perfect every time...

Make a rub of salt and pepper and garlic and/or onion powder and or any other type of herb you like and you can even mix it with butter or olive oil .... rub onto roast. Put in roasting pan, turn oven to 550º. When oven is ready put in the roast and cook it 5 minutes for every pound for rare, 6 minutes per pound for medium. Then turn off the oven and DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR FOR 2 HOURS! Done to perfection.

Here is a formula: For me it was 3.75 lbs x 5 min. = 18.75 minutes or 19 minutes.
To make a very quick natural sauce; pour off the excess fat, and place the roasting pan over high heat. Add a few cups of water or beef broth and bring to a boil while scraping all the caramelized beef drippings from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon or whisk.

Let this boil and reduce slightly while you slice the meat. Pour into a serving bowl, season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, and serve along side the prime rib.

Go For A Ride Day



As the holidays approach, life becomes chaotic, and perhaps a bit stressful. Take a breather, and go for a relaxing ride. You don't need a destination to enjoy this day.  But, you certainly can bring family or friends along for company.
The means of transportation can be anything. Sure, a car, bus, or motorcycle ride may immediately come to mind. Here are some other ways of riding, that may prove more fun than the family vehicle:Take a sleigh ride.
Ride a horse.
Ride a horse-drawn carriage.
Snowmobile rides are always "cool".
A bicycle is a great, way to ride and exercise.
A boat ride, if your are a warmer climate.
Doesn't a plane ride to a sunny vacation spot sound like fun!?
