Mittry Lake near Yuma, Arizona
Another cool morning but no wind and sunny without a cloud in the sky. Had a nice leisurely breakfast and by 11 o'clock it was warm outside and promised to be a nice day.
I had bought a package of six beef boneless chuck style ribs when at the store last. I thought they would be just like steak since it was beef. But when I called Dolly to find out if I could cook them on the stovetop I was surprised.
Nope. These have to be cooked in the oven for three hours with lots of seasoning and BBQ sauce. Of course, I don't have BBQ sauce, so Dolly suggested mixing ketchup and mustard. I do have that.
That solved my dilemma of whether to run around in the Jeep or stay home and watch football. Last regular season games and they are all so important for the play-offs.
Not to miss the beautiful weather, I took the TV outside and watched it while cooking and getting a suntan. First time using the oven this year and didn't dare leave and have the place burn down.
|Oops! A misfire. Sorry Yuma.|
|Here is my TV setup. Chair for Yuma and chair for me.|

A few short walks with Yuma and both of us resting in our lounge chairs mainly just listening to the games, we had a wonderful and relaxing Sunday. We did meet a Yuma pal on one of our walks.
It was 5 o'clock when I pulled one piece out of the oven and tasted it. It was falling off the fork delicious. Just the right mustard spicy taste. I thought I would eat three and save the other three for tomorrow, but they had shrunk a little bit and tasted so wonderfully good, Yuma and I ate all of them with a pile of French Style beans.
Thank you Dolly for being such a great long distance cook. Tasted just like roast beef, which I guess it was. I think George would be proud of me. From TV dinners to a culinary expert.
One last Sunday night game to watch and then to bed. Looks like clouds are coming in from the West. May be a cloudy day tomorrow.
See you later.
