When buying Ribs……….

Choose the right rib. Baby backs make great starter ribs — they’re tender, well-marbled, and quick and easy to cook. Also when buying ribs, look for plump meaty racks. Avoid “shiners” — ribs with so much meat removed you see the shiny bones.

What’s you favorite; pork or beef ribs………………

Basic options for ribs are pork or beef. Both are flavorful and juicy when properly cooked, but pork tends to be the leaner option. The most common cuts of pork ribs are baby back or spare ribs. While spare ribs are meatier, they’re also higher in fat and calories.

Today’s Menu: Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I have to be at the Dermatologist at 8:30 for my yearly check up. The Doc said everything looked good! Afterward Mom wanted to stop by Meijer, which is right down the road from my Dermatologist. Then we went to McDonald’s to pick up her Breakfast for her. Another nice day out, 81 degrees and partly sunny. In the upcoming days our highs will be in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s, Fall is coming! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

We just had Ribs last week but Mom loves Ribs, so I have to keep Mom happy! I bought a package of the Curly’s Baby Back Ribs from Meijer earlier today. The thing I like about these Ribs is they are a lot easier and quicker to prepare. And they are good tasting Ribs!

 

 

To prepare them, it couldn’t be easier; The package instructions – Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove ribs from package and place on baking sheet; cover with foil. Bake 20-25 minutes. For extra Sauce we used Jack Daniel’s Honey BBQ Sauce.

 

 

The Ribs came out incredible! Tender, flavorful, and bursting with that BBQ flavor! Curly’s Baby Back Ribs is a very delicious and time saving way to have some good Ribs! I had bought 2 packages of them, I have the other one in the freezer, to be used soon! Good job on the Ribs there Curly!

 

For a side I tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other’s were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. I’m a proud member of the Main Street Bistro Nation! For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Curly’s Baby Back Pork Ribs

We expertly smoke our ribs for hours so you don’t have to. Enjoy a juicy and unforgettable flavor experience with Curly’s Ribs. Curly’s Authentic Hickory Smoked BBQ products are always pulled, never shredded, for true restaurant quality. We start with the best cuts of meat—absolutely no fillers—then expertly smoke our pork, beef, chicken and ribs for hours so that you can enjoy the cuts you crave in minutes. Look for Curly’s at your local grocery store!

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast it was Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. Just love this skillet meal! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 65 degrees out, and very windy. I no longer go to the grocery stores unless it’s to pick up an order. I also order online and have it delivered. Cleaning Supplies, Ground, Beef, and Paper products are still very tough to find any where. So it’s make the best out of what you have, thank goodness for full freezers! Tonight its Mom’s favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday. Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
