Second confession. Due to our expanding waistlines and significantly NOT expanding budget, we've come to the conclusion that our yummy Mondays may need to change slightly. Nothing huge, just paying attention to sales and menus and, heaven help us all, CALORIES. I say this only because you may read talk of this in coming posts and I didn't want you to be confused. "What? Have I stumbled onto some kind of healthy blog? This can't be Kimberly talking..."
This meal is NOT one of those healthy ones. BUT, I DID get these ribs on super sale. Woot! I was hunting for deals and it came down to pork chops or boneless ribs. I let mr decide. So we had some:
I found the recipe here. I altered it just a touch. Well, actually, I MEANT to alter it just a touch, but accidentally altered it more. See, I went to add some liquid smoke, because they needed some heat, right? And the bottle I thought the bottle was one of those shake-y bottles - like soy sauce - but in actuality it was just a normal pour bottle, like steak sauce. Oops. Then, I decided to shake in some pepper flake, because mr would really love me, and I thought I opened the sprinkle side of the shaker, but in actuality I opened the pour side of the shaker. Basically there was a whole lot of pouring going on and not a lot of sprinkling. Which means this suckers had some zip. mr and dad were in heaven. Even mom liked them, though admitted they were spicy. I couldn't even finish one. Such a wimp... OR so very cleverly saving room for dessert? Hm.... In any case, here's the recipe.
Oven Baked BBQ Ribs
Easy Dill Dip
1 C mayo
1 C sour cream
1 T dried parsley
1 T minced onion, dried
3 T dried dill weed
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
Mix it all together. Cover and chill.
You see how easy that is? Yep. And it was yummy. Actually, this is the only part of dinner (besides the potato) that bug liked. He had to put it on everything in order to eat enough to earn dessert.
Speaking of which... would you like to see why dessert is my favorite part?
