Michelin denies paternity suit!

The weather looks good for weekend grilling! The weatherpeople forecast temperatures in the mid-to-high 80s for this weekend. Today is sunny, the sky is blue and clear, and the birds are singing. It is forecast to be in the high 70s today and warming through the weekend. This will be great weather for outdoor activities! My brother is coming to dinner tomorrow. We shall grill New York strip steaks. Sunday, we intend to go for a journey in Mr. Nitro and perhaps a nature trek and photo expedition. If sufficient energy remains following this excursion, I intend to wash Mr. Nitro.

For dinner last evening, I removed the meat from the half rack of baby back ribs that remained from last Saturday's dinner. I added it to the leftover red beans and rice from that meal and allowed it to simmer for an hour. I warmed flour tortillas. It was a delightful meal.
