Chamomile - 202/365
Not much has changed these days. Each day my headaches range from mildly annoying to terrifying migraines. My energy levels are low to the point I can only do one or two things. Saturday was one of those days. Mr. Wild Dingo was off this week and took over some of my dog walks. But he asked for one of his favorite dinners, sweet and sticky baby back ribs and 'slaw. How could I say no? I mean, he takes home the bacon, the least I can do is fry it up in a pan!
Baby Back Ribs in Sweet and Sour Sauce
So Saturday I planned to get up, make the ribs then do the dog walk. But all I had in the tank was the dinner prep and barely at that. I had to take a lot of breaks in between preparing. Mr. Wild Dingo took over the dog walk that day, though it cut into his bike ride and his project to install the baluster railing on the terrace. I basically made the rib sauce and put them in the slow cooker by noon. Then I made the slaw so all I'd have to do was make the dressing and broil the ribs under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up before dinner. The rest of the day, I spent on the sofa surfing Netflix. I made a mountain of ribs and the dogs each got three of their own (minus the bone of course).
Sweet and Sticky Baby Ribs is an easy recipe, but a little time-consuming because of the amount of ingredients that the sauce requires.
So Rottrover, you asked and you shall receive! Here are your food photos and a recipe.
Sweet & Sticky Baby Back Ribs (From America's Test Kitchen: Slow Cookers Revolution)
Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, sugar, vinegar, mustard, celery salt, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, and then add to the cabbage mixture. Mix well to combine and taste for seasoning; add more salt, pepper, or sugar if desired.
Now Mr. Wild Dingo is off for a two week trip to Asia. I don't like him leaving but I'll be really happy just to drink bone broth and poached egg for dinner most nights! Internet, you know I must be sick when my passion for cooking has dropped to that low! A two week travel for Mr. Wild Dingo means there will be little to no second dinner for the dogs. The dogs will sure miss Mr. Wild Dingo!
