Head or Tail (letter c) + Tackle It Tuesday

This week is letter C and I thought I would post about “C” week.
Well for the Christmas I won a amazon on line gift card so I got my self a crock pot and made up some COLA BARBECUED RIBS
3 to 4 pounds of pork ribs
¼ Cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon of smoked salt (I didn’t have the smoked salt so I use liquid smoke)
¼ teaspoon of black pepper
½ Cup of Cola
1 and ½ Cup of barbeque sauce.
Place ribs in crock pot and pour Cola Barbecued sauce of ribs make sure everything is well mix bake on low for about 8 hours

After doing this recipe a song came to my mind Coke Cola Cowboy by Mel Tillis

I called collect on the phone
You say youre tired and alone
But it sounds like someone else is lying there
She said dont call me no more
Dont you knock on my door
Its too late now, and I know you'll never change
She said....

Youre just a Coca Cola cowboy
You got an Eastwood smile, and Robert Redford hair
But you walked across my heart like it was Texas
And you taught me how to say I just dont care

She said just leave me alone
And let me hang up this phone
Cause he'll see me cry, and think I still love you
Please don't call me no more
I changed the locks on my door
Its time you understood that we are through
She said....

Youre just a Coca Cola cowboy
You got an Eastwood smile, and Robert Redford hair
But you walked across my heart like it was Texas
And you taught me how to say I just dont care

Yes she taght me how to say I just don't care

I’m clueless why this came into my mind my mom use to make cowboy cookie bar and Thanks to world wide web I found a Cowboy Cookie bar

Cowboy Cookie

1 cup shortening (recommended: Crisco) 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup chopped pecans 1 (6-ounce) package chocolate chips 1/2 cup shredded coconut Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, cream the shortening, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and the vanilla and beat until well blended. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add oats, nuts, chocolate chips and coconut, mix until combined. Spoon cookie mixture onto greased foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Please note I didn’t have coconut or pecan which I used raisin and walnuts.

First all I want to apologies on the quality of picture and I got my containers put up and have know plans to pull them down until after Thanksgiving.

All of our Christmas Decorations was thrown in one box the ginger bread men on it.
When it came to decorate for the Holidays I had to sort though the boxes to find what I need which was mainly frustrating and I had the attitude “Heck with this” and never finished and I was not please with my outcome.
So I went to wal-mart and bought two totes

One of the totes I put in all of the lights and garland. Then the other totes I put in ornaments and the tree skirt.
Confession time…I could use anther tote of so so I could put in more of my holiday decoctions which I would display.

I’m one who likes a bargain

And I picked up some regular white lights for $1.00 and I also got some ice sickle lights for a $1.75
Then also I bought a roll of wrapping paper for a $1.00
