A mother-daughter conversation on food and cooking (mostly)

Tuesday, August 26, 2008


Grandma and Mary Ellen and I went to a flute and piano recital on Sunday afternoon, and Dad cooked ribs.

I coated them with Joy of Cooking's Southern Dry Rub the day before--oh yeah, there were four big skinless chicken thighs in there, too--and he cooked them indirectly over charcoal for 2 1/2 hours. He removed the chicken after an hour or so.

Altogether, with everyone contributing, we had the meat with barbecue sauce, Grandma's potato salad, green bean and tomato salad, watermelon, and coffee ice cream with blackberries. That was a very nice Sunday supper.
Tonight we're having a reprise with reheated ribs, freshly baked cornbread, and pea salad.

I'm surprised the fat rendered out of the ribs so quickly, but it looks like it did. Yum.

What was in your barbecue sauce? It was not mustard-based, I presume?

Saw this spelt-possible cookie recipe and thought of this blog!

Thank you, Karin--that is a beautiful cookie! I will look at their gluten-free recipes.
