Simply Southern

Larry wanted ribs and potato salad for dinner. Easy-peasy. I seasoned up the ribs and put them in the slow cooker and left them to cook by themselves for about 6 hours. Dinner was a simple Southern styled meal. Delicious and no fuss about it.

Sorry for the poor quality of this picture. I didn’t realize it was so bad until this morning. I was in a bit of a hurry I guess. Oh well. These things do happen. 🙂

Once I got the ribs going, I made a simple potato salad, also per Larry’s request and a one of my favorite summer salads, with corn, green beans and tomatoes. You have seen this salad many times before. Sometimes I add green beans, and sometimes I don’t. But either way it is a perfect salad for those hot summer days. Bring on the Summer

Larry wanted something simple since he was going to have a late golf night. Once he got home, everything was ready. All we needed to do was serve it up and top it with sauce. This time, our sauce of choice was some Mexican BBQ sauce, again, per Larry’s request. Southwestern BBQ Chicken Pizza with Blue Corn Crust It went very nicely with the short ribs.

We are keeping things simple right now since we are going to be gone for a few days. Our niece is getting married in Colorado Springs, and Larry’s whole family (which is very large) is coming out. I am going to be breaking my long streak of posting with no breaks, but just for a few days, and then, I’ll be back once again. 🙂

Stay happy, stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.

    1. We are home now We returned home yesterday afternoon. We had a good time, despite the fact that we had a HUGE snow storm that dropped over 16 inches of snow, and of course our niece had an outdoor wedding. But it worked out. Fortunately the ceremony was short and sweet, so it wasn’t to uncomfortably cold out.
