Moonshine &

Yesterday my oldest son Kris [27] and two of his friends came up to our house... to ride motorcycles... one of his friends just got a bike...
Anyway... I had already invited Manny for some of my famous baby back ribs... I make THE BEST ribs you have eaten... Seriously... I do... Ask Nurse Pam or Gram Pam they are the BEST!!!

So I was a little worried I might not have enough with Kameron and Kieffer up here also... but I did... Whew...

Wait... that is not the point of my story... The point is 'My Manny Man'...

{For those of you who don't know...Manny is my 83 yr old neighbor who I thought died a couple of months ago because he was in the ICU at the VA Hospital for 2 months and when I found out he didn't die... I have been spoiling him rotten... He said he loved baby back ribs one day and I said "Manny you haven't had good ribs till you've had mine"}

So back to my story...

At 5pm on the dot... here comes Manny with a bottle in his hand... He hands it to me and says "I brought some white wine for dinner" I thanked him and left him with the boys to talk... I was laughing to myself as I walked in the house looking at the bottle...

If this bottle had white wine in it... I was the Pope!!! My first clue was the screw off top... my second clue was the 80 proof title!!! My third clue was the name... OMG... ever heard of "AALBORG AKVAVIT" The Danish National Drink??? Jim? You guys drink this in the Area 51??? Hhhhhhmmmmm??? I was cracking up...

I didn't serve it with dinner... I knew this stuff was more like Russian vodka than white wine... So I waited till afterwards... Hey I didn't want to be rude and NOT serve it yanno...

OH BOY... I think it was 'Danish White Lighting Moonshine'... Whew... one sip was enough! Even Manny takes a sip and says "I feel dizzy' LOL

Kameron took a sip and then said in a Russian accent "Make you strong... like Bull"

That is funny. Glad he brought over so stuff to get the after party started.
Hell after you drink a dose of that you guys won't have to worry about swine flu lol.
You'll have to share your killer recipe for baby backs. We love them this way.
Take care, Chrissie
