Curried Beef Short Ribs

Note: I found this was more realistically four servings.

Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces ribs, 2/3 cup rice, and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

What Day Is It?

Lots of books have been claimed.  I have them divided up into envelopes and I will hopefully send them off tomorrow.  If you offered to pay for shiping I will give you paypal information.  I got 50 stamps for our holiday cards and I am hoping to get those all out soon.  I think this is the first time we are doing it in a few years.  The picture of the kids is way too adorable not to share with friends and family.

Today the babysitter comes.  And our date night will most probably consist of holiday shopping.  I got a few things done with Keegan along yesterday but it definitely moves faster alone.  And of course I can't shop for family with him along because he is not so good with the secrets.  Plus he thinks Santa is bringing all of this stuff.

I had court this morning for my inspection sticker debacle.  They dropped everything because unlike the officer they recognized I had no fault in it.  It's just so ridiculous that it dragged on since July.  And when I went to get in my car someone had parked right up against the driver's side.  That's some bad karma to make a pregnant woman crawl across the seats.  I hope their court proceedings did not come out on their side.  Grrrr...

Keep your fingers crossed that my schedule remains open for tomorrow afternoon.  I am hoping to get out around noon to take care of my blood work and then finish up my errands.  I did get to the tailor today so I should have some maternity pants to wear next Monday.

And I got flowers today.  From my Phi Rho Sisters.  We have been giving each one of us flowers each month over the year and finally it was my turn!  Nice happy giant gerber daisies for my cube.

And who's smart alec husband sent her a phone photo of the free goodies he's eating at work?  Yeah you can bet none of that makes it home alive.
