Can I ride in the cart Mom?????
Now for my NEXT activity, I will pawticipate in Bacon and Fozziemum’s “SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD” event – and this week we are to share information on any “one pot meal”.
My Mom often uses her crockpot to start dinner early in the morning on those days when she will be running errands or just away from home all day with my Dad on a little day trip somewhere. She has TWO crockpots – a smaller one and a jumbo one.
This recipe is one of my Dad’s FAVORITE meals…………..Mom will make this for Dad when she knows she won’t be home for dinner because while HE loves it, Mom isn’t as nuts about it as he is. It’s easy too………TOTALLY.
Short Ribs In Beer Over Rice (or Noodles)
One package short ribs (enough for however many people you’re feeding!) Price: Angus Beef Short Ribs Bone-In $7.99 lb.
One onion sliced Price: Yellow Onion $.16
One can stewed tomatoes (drained) Price: 14.5 oz. can $.79
One beer (any kind will do!!) Price: $1.33 (for one bottled Bud Light!)
Enough rice for however many people you’re feeding (noodles work too!) Price: Uncle Ben’s White Instant Rice, 32 oz. $4.59
Throw everything into the crockpot together (except for rice or noodles)……………and turn on low – let it cook until dinner time or until ribs are tender and falling off the bone. Make enough rice for everyone to have some in a bowl to put their ribs with some of the “juice/gravy” on it. YES you can eat with a fork or a spoon depending on whether you want to have any of the juice on top – my Dad likes that because he eats nice buttery rolls with his short ribs and that juice is “MMMMMMM-GOOOOOOD!” he says.
YES it’s housecleaning day – and the usual crowd was here to help my Old Mom and Dad and Old Me out to get this place ship-shape for another week. We don’t make much mess at our age (well, maybe I do because I shed and need help with my litterbox and occasionally throw up)…….thank heavens my Mom and Dad don’t do those things either. They can’t shed – neither of them has much hair…….they don’t use a litterbox (thankfully so I have it ALL to myself) and they never throw up (YAY!).
The cleaners were in and out in a flash!
Now I can sleep…………without anyone bothering me………..saving up my energy to eat bacon tomorrow……………………..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Ta Ta Til Tomorrow!
