thus far. Friday night, SU and I ordered pizza and watched the rest of season one of Murder One on DVD. The only way to watch television. We watched 4 episodes, about 180 minutes worth. Much like a long movie, I guess.
It’s really strange to watch Hollywood’s moral values play out. Really strange. Their idea of love and marriage is ruling the day and I don’t think it is the other way around. I truly think that the public follows Hollywood vs. Hollywood following the public.
Slept in Saturday, that was sweet. Didn’t make it out of the rack until 7:30 or so. We decided to have some friends over from church, so spent most of the day preparing the house and food.
I really outdid myself. Really. I can cook. Bottom line. I can cook. Marinated a couple of pork tenderloins in a raspberry/garlic sauce. Also prepared a rack and a half of baby back ribs with a dry rub that I like. Used oak to fire the grill, let it heat for a couple of hours until it was just right, not too hot, just right.
While the loins and ribs were grilling, I combined the balance of the marinade with sherry, pepper, jalapeno sauce and more garlic in a shallow sauce pan. Kept it on medium heat, stirring very often, until it was reduced to a very thick, creamy sauce. Pulled the pork off the pit, let it rest a bit, then drizzled the sauce over it.
Heavenly. Just heavenly.
Which was what our class was about this morning, continuing our focus upon not building up treasure here on earth. As in, our true home is in heaven, we’re just ambassadors here. Excellent discussion. Really good.
After singing in worship, I took SU to the airport for the short hop over to NOLA. She’s attending a rollout of one of their new programs at a local hospital.
Now, I’m heading down to Katie’s to listen to a little live music. Probably have to burn my clothes but it’s been a while and it’s time to go.
Life is very, very good.
