How appropriate that the last What Was Dinner dinner turns out to be ribs.
It was a beautiful beach day yesterday and that is just what I did I packed up my Kindle,towel and sand chair and headed to Wildwood. Before I left I mixed together a rub for the ribs. This is something I had not done before so I went looking for a recipe and I found one for Ermil's Essence using all my favorite spices from garlic to cayenne.While Iwas mixing together the spices for this rub my mind was just spinning with ideas of rubs I can make as well as what to use them for.(I see a brisket in our near future.)
As I lounged on the beach soaking up the sun enjoying all the sights and sounds the ocean has to offer Bill was home slaving over the grill,well maybe not slaving but he did cook the ribs and he did a great job.The ribs were well done, full of flavor and messy to eat as any self respecting rib should be.
He used beer for moisture while cooking and at the very last minute he covered them in sweet baby rays barbecue sauce.The peppery taste of the rub along with the steam from the beer and the sweetness of the barbecue sauce blended together into a perfectly delicious plate of ribs. As for side dishes and vegetables......well I had fried pickles while I was at the shore
Yes I did say this is the last What Was Dinner,I am going to change it up a bit.For the next month it is going to be "What Was The Challenge". Each day I want to do 1 new thing at dinner. I want to cook and try things I have never done before. I have a pinterest board full off things I want to try as well as books and boxes of recipes I always mean to get around to and don't. I am also taking suggestions so if you would like to get in on the fun please feel free to share a recipe with me.
Keep in mind I am a picky meat eater and only eat beef,pork and chicken. I will however prepare fish dishes for others to eat.
