NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
This week is bracketed by the start of spring and Easter… and a reminder that winter is still lingering with a spring snowstorm in the middle. We were lucky we didn't more that a few snowflakes while the south metro got up to a foot of snow. I wasn't in that part of the metro this week, but someone told me it was just like a line was drawn… snow on one side… no snow on the other. Had lunch recently with dear friends. Beata is not only a wonderful hostess and life coach, she also loves using zentangle to create beautiful eggs… we each got to pick one! Photo of proud mother and son after his choir concert.
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
This week's recipe comes from a another dear friend. She has talked many times about her father's recipe for BBQ ribs… so easy and always tender. She graciously shared the recipe… sign of a down home recipe, no quantities!
Kay's BBQ RIBS
- Use pork back ribs only!
- Lemon and pepper seasoning
- BBQ sauce, Jack Daniels or whatever you like
Cut ribs into serving size pieces and arrange in a baking pan. Slather prepared horseradish on each serving, a couple teaspoons each. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning seasoning over all. Add water to bottom of baking pan, enough to barely cover bottom (about 1 cup). Cover with aluminum foil, making sure ribs are sealed inside pan.
Bake about 2 hours, maybe a bit less, at 325 degrees F. Uncover and put BBQ sauce on top of all. Seal the ribs with the foil cover and bake an additional 30-45 minutes. Uncover, add more BBQ sauce and bake maybe 30 minutes more.
Sometimes in the summer, we do these ahead and just pop them on the grill before serving. Be careful to keep them on indirect heat if you do this. A good recipe as the times are not critical and the ribs are always tender! Enjoy! – Kay Netland
