We’re going to be making ribs tomorrow. To make this vaguely money-related, we’ll be buying the ribs from Costco, where they’ll probably “only” cost us about $40. Hopefully we have most of the remaining ingredients already on hand. If not, we’ll be hitting up the normal grocery store as well. The recipe I use takes about 4 1/2 hours of cooking time, and it is so worth it. We only make them about once or twice a year, usually when it’s cold outside because having the oven going for so long really heats up the house. Do you have any meals that you like to make for special occasions? (In our case, the ribs ARE the occasion.) I’d love links to recipes if you have them. Meanwhile, time for some links:
