Andrew’s birthday celebration went off without a hitch—unless you count the new mouse in our house. In case you are counting, the score this morning is Mouse: 0 , Us: 1.
Thanks to Mom and Pops for the awesome firepit (and hand-me-down grill), we were all equipped for a woodsman’s birthday celebration with fire, hot coals, and meat.
It’s likely some of you visit A Pear to Remember for healthy, vegetarian recipes, but for the hubby’s birthday that would not do! On the menu:
Grilled hot dogs
Grammy’s Mac and Cheese
Grilled Rosemary Veggies
If you’ve ever been a dinner guest in our little home, you know about Grammy’s Mac and Cheese. I make it (by request) a lot. It’s completely unfair I have not yet posted the recipe here, but should my father-in-law and I really start that pub we talk about, I’m saving this dish for the House Special.
Andrew’s Baby Back Ribs
this amount fed 12 hungry guests, with some leftovers
3 whole slabs pork baby back ribs
Sweet Baby Ray’s Original barbecue sauce
Preheat the oven to 225F.
On a roasting sheet lined with aluminum foil, remove the back membrane with a knife (click here for a really helpful how-to video).
Brush both sides with olive oil; salt and pepper all over.
Enjoy with beer, meat-eating friends, and lots of napkins.
