Memorial Day Eats!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet as I am unfortunately still in the throws of a memorial day food coma.  Said food coma was caused by this:

and this:

Yes, that's an ice cream maker on a washing machine.  And yes, that's a rogue fork.  

The ice cream was made from this recipe.  I followed it exactly so just check it out over at the allrecipes.com.  Be aware, however, that you really need a candy thermometer and that it takes a really really long time to make the custard.  Other than that, it's easy and delicious! 

Saturday was my first shot at making ribs and I must say, I'm hooked.  We might start having ribs on random Wednesday!

Random Rib Wednesday.  It has a nice ring to it.  You'll have to come over. 

Barbecue Oven Ribs
adapted from Food.com

4 lb of pork ribs
liquid smoke
3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1 tbl paprika
1 tbl garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
BBQ sauce - about 2 cups (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  

Remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs.  Brush liquid smoke (not to much) on both sides of the ribs.  Combine the sugar, paprika, garlic powder, and red pepper. Rub on each side of the ribs.  

Place on a piece of foil, meat side down.  Place another piece of foil atop the ribs and crimp the foil together.  

Cook for about 2 and a half hours.  Remove from the oven, turn on the broiler.  Rub sauce over one side of the ribs, broil for about 3 minutes.  Turn the ribs over, add sauce to the other side of the ribs.  Broil for about three minutes.  


Happy Memorial Day!
