Dog Meat

March 29, 2010

Blogging has taken a back seat to life lately. I have been organizing, decorating, painting, and prioritizing. I am sure I will get back into it, but for now, I think my posting will be a little sporadic. So far, I have painted the stone fire place, painted the front door (5 COATS!), new bedding for our bedroom that I have been wanting for two years, rearranged the playroom and have a trash bag of toys to donate, rearranged Scott’s room, organized kids spring/summer clothes, and working on this project (except in boy colors). I will still do my menu plan, since I actually have to do it to help myself be more organized!

Scott has started his first organized sport. Soccer! He has practice on Wednesday nights so I need to start doing something quick and easy on Wednesday nights so we can get out the door. He is still really into meat, the other day he said, “Mom, Katie looks like she has some good meat on her.” Me: “Ummm, we are not going eat Katie.” Scott: “I know. I was just talking about her meat.” Ok.

The BBQ Chicken Pizza last week was awesome! I was so excited, I am not very adventurous in my pizza making so it was a nice change. On a random note… It is supposed to be 80 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday this week!!! That is shorts weather people!

Monday: Eating at Whole Foods after grocery shopping

Tuesday: Breakfast for Dinner, Nate is really into “eggies”, Scott is really into bacon, I am really into pancakes

Wednesday: Grilled Sandwiches w/ raw veggies and dip

Thursday: BBQ Pork Sandwiches with sweet potato fries (since the oven will be on any)

Friday: Homemade Pizza Night- Pesto, Feta and Tomato

Saturday: Out

Sunday: Grilled Fish with fresh asparagus

    hey cori! i am leaving you the rib recipe here. i just randomly chose one that i found off, it is an “asian inspired” recipe. i didn’t fully read the directions before doing it, so i didn’t get to let mine sit and marinate overnight…i just cooked them with the sauce and everything.

    slow cooker boneless ribs
    1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
    1 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup sesame oil (next time i will only use 1/8 cup)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger (i didn’t have any, so i didn’t use it)
    1 teaspoon sriracha hot pepper sauce
    12 boneless country-style pork ribs (i had never cooked ribs before, so when i bought them it was a package that was roughly 3 pounds. when i got home there were 4 long pieces of meat and i just cut those into 2″ pieces. so i have no idea if the kind i bought were the right kind…oh and mine were beef but they did say “countr-style”)

    1. stir together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, garlic, ginger and sriracha in the crock of a slow cooker. add ribs; cover and refrigerate. allow ribs to marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight (i didn’t do that)

    2. before cooking, drain marinade and discard. cook on low for 9 hours. drain cooked meat and shred, using 2 forks. (i cooked mine in the marinade and on high for a little over 4 hours and they were still super tender)

    it was really pretty good, i didn’t know b/c of it having all the asian spices, but we liked it. we actually shredded the meat and ate it on hoagie rolls with cheese toasted over the top. if you try it let me know what you think.

    sorry so long!
