(this post is about Thursday at The Slabs)
Yes, as much as I hate to torment my blog readers from up north, this is a picture perfect day at The Slabs. It’s in the mid-80’s clear blue sky and sunshine from the Chocolate Mountains on one side and the Vallecito and Santa Rosa Mountains on the other side.
And here is a map of where we are:
We were invited to a cookout on Thursday… bring your own steak and a dish to pass. It was at some friends of Rich and Mary’s. I baked up some brownies in my little Easy Bake Oven set up on a table outside of the rig.
It’s been getting HOT here during the days… already 82 at 9:30 am. Whew! We put out the awning and it helps keep the heat off the side of the rig. Our thermometer read a high of 96, and Seanns was over 100. WOW! Steve and Seann did some configuring on some extra gas line hose for a catalytic heater on Seann’s trailer.
Then I whipped up a pot of my Calico Beans. It was getting so hot in the motorhome, that I broke down, fired up the generator and kicked on the air conditioner for a while.
Mary brought over a cool thing for me to borrow of hers. It’s from Coleman, it’s a silver colored metal round tub unit with a black locking insulated lid. Inside is a removable metal pot. Heat up the beans, dump em in the pot, and set it in the unit… good to go! Keeps it hot for hours! (I will get a picture of it later, forgot) So off we went to the party, with our steaks, brownies and pot o’ beans. LOL Steve and Rich were on cooking duty at the grill.
I was the MOST POPULAR person at the party! (well, for the dogs at the party!) Steve’s steak had a big portion of gristle and fat, so I cut it into tiny pieces and these four doggies just LOVE ME!
We came back later, sat around the campfire till dark,
enjoying the warmth and friendship of our good buddies here at The Slabs!
