The line:
"Hey honey, look who followed me home. Can I keep her?"
has never worked for me.

Good crowds at the fair today, but many of the vendors said sales were slow.  People are there, but they're not spending money.

Wife and I were there Monday.

Now, I hate vendors or sales people hounding you, but in reference to the fact that ppl aren't spending money: this year I saw a big difference how the vendors dealt with potential customers.  As in: I'm just gonna sit here on my butt, if you gotta question YOU'LL ask me.

Now, the gals at Republic Homes were cool, that's how it works for that type of display.  Let us tour and then we'll ask questions.

And the tattoo guys did it right also, let me see the pictures then struck up a conversation.

And the Lincoln-Mercury gals were Suh-weet!  ;D   ;) And also very helpful when needing directions to the Ford display.

None of the above were pushy, but attentive to a prospective customer.

It just seemed that in comparison to previous years most vendors, including food vendors, had a "if you (want, question, need) my item you'll ask me" attitude.

Maybe that's just my impression.

OK, back on topic

******NOTE This is NOT a Fuzz bash******

So we FINALLY got to do the western style beef ribs in the slow cooker using Fuzz's recipe.

Wasn't sure since they were boneless beef ribs, but the pork baby backs we did in the crock pot turned out GREAT!

Did about 2-3 lbs. of beef ribs using the straight up 1 set recipe Fuzz posted.

Even about 4-5 hours into the 6-8 hours he recommended I was concerned.  Didn't look like enough liquid, beef don't have the fat that pork does.  And while I personally am a slow cooker, I do mine on the smoker, not in the crock pot. 

Wifey convinced me to quit checking it, leave it alone to get happy.  Ribs appeared to be getting rubbery, I was not looking foreward to this. :-\

Wifey made up some smashed taters (Idahoan, a packet style thing at Kroger.  Wifey don't like instant mashed taters, but will eat these).

Well, after 8-10 hours in the crock pot THESE WERE GREAT! ;D ;D ;D

Great recipe Fuzz,thanks for sharing it!

Is a Fuzz Bash anything like a Hash Bash? Are there brownies involved? I'm in!

While I'm very, VERY happy that Handsome is away at work, I'm not so very much happy that it's now my job to make dinner. I am very rusty, and my culinary skills pale in comparison to his. I need to figure out something to make for dinner tonight! Unfortunately, I don't think he's going to be satisfied with a pickle loaf sandwich!

*sigh*.... Guess I'll go see what pantry items I can muck up.....

LOL, sorry about the complications, Dave.  Glad it worked out though.

I used to cook a lot more in the crock pot when I would live away from home on new model car launches.  I used to get sick of eating out every night and would take the time in the morning to prepare the meal before I'd leave for the plants.  Was always nice to get back to the apartments with the entree already done. 

Try spaghetti sauce out of fresh tomatoes sometime, Dave.....another great crock pot meal.

It is actually a combination of the Hash Bash, and a mosh pit if you catch my drift.   ;)
