I'm thinking that I use the word 'easy' in so many of my recipe intros. You can see that's important to me. I like good food, but I don't enjoy fussing over it for hours at a time. I love this menu for how easy it is and how visually attractive the food looks when set out. And, of course, it's always a bonus that it tastes good! :-)
Steamed and buttered green beans, always better if they're fresh from the garden!
I placed the ribs in the crockpot, poured some 'Famous Dave's' BBQ sauce over the top, and cooked on Low for several hours (like six or seven?) Toward the end, my husband got the charcoal grill going, and when it was ready, put the ribs on the grill to get them crispy on the outside. They were delicious!
Steamed and buttered green beans? Well, green beans and butter. Don't skimp on the butter. And don't over-steam them. They need to be bright green and still a tad crunchy! Salt and pepper to taste. What more could they need. They look so pretty left whole, rather than cut up.
My mom always set a pretty table. So to me, it matters a lot how food appears, not just how it tastes.
The thrift store is a good place to look for inexpensive and unusual serving dishes. The right thing in the right bowl makes an attractive table. I'm still working on it. :-) I think my mom would be pleased with the food I make...and horrified that my dogs get to be in the kitchen.
