Today is Sunday.Â I usually do a lot of cookin’ on Sundays.Â Mainly because I have a handy supply of family members to wash dishes.Â Coming from a family ofÂ 10 and raising a family of 7, I have done a lot of dishes in my time.Â And I believe in sharing the wealth.
Today, I am making Rice Krispies Treats andÂ Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.Â I thought I was going to see my middle child today, and she loves Rice Krispies Treats and my Banana Bread.Â I like to send food back to school with my college kids so they remember their Mama fondly.Â And forget the psycho mom who yelled at them.Â Anyway, she changed her mind about coming home, but I made them anyway.
I’m also making Noir Bars which is a recipe that was sitting in my pile of “recipes to try someday.”Â It includes chocolate and coffee (specifically, espresso), and I find it hard to resist any recipe that combines these two ingredients.Â I have a handy trick that I use for all bar and brownie recipes that I will share with you if this recipe passes the “share with others” test.
Speaking of my middle child.Â She was home last summer only because she happened to get an internship close to home.Â I don’t expect that will happen again, but we enjoyed her time at home last summer.Â Her internship was at a manufacturer in a small town about 30 miles away.Â This company gave every employee an award for meeting a safety goal.Â The award was meat.Â Specifically, 12 Country Style Pork Ribs.Â For some reason, she decided not to take the package of meat back to school.
I have never cooked this cut of meat so I did some research and adapted a recipe that looked good, and I will share it if it passes the “share with others” test.Â So for dinner, I amÂ preparing BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs, Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, and Homemade Applesauce.
