I Made Ribs And Spoonable Cornbread And It Was Good. I Think.

When I make a meal that comes out edible, I’m shocked.

Unfortunately for Patrick, I need his constant guarantee that what I’ve fed him is good, it’s the best meal ever, and he wants me to make it eleventeen more times. I think it’s that insatiable need for reassurance of my cooking abilities that keeps him from encouraging me to cook more.

Or, he’s maybe tired of waiting for the inevitable mental breakdown I’ll have over burning garlic/mis-timing the oven/forgetting the flour/breaking a door/starting a fire.

In fact, I know that’s true because he told me so.

And then I flipped him off because I was in the middle of making BBQ beef ribs and spoonable cornbread.

Beef ribs were on sale at Publix and were pre-seasoned, so I slapped those suckers in a pan with an inch of water and used this cooks.com recipe as a guide.

  • Bake at 250º for 30 minutes
  • Flip rack
  • Bake at 250º for 30 minutes
  • Top generously w/ BBQ sauce & tent with aluminum foil
  • Bake at 400º for 30 minutes

After the Jiffy yellow cake debacle of earlier this week, I got the Jiffy corn bread mix and made this Country Crock spoonable cornbread recipe.

Those picky kids of mine looooooved the “pork” as they called it but weren’t fans of the cornbread. I know. Weirdos.

From what I gathered, Patrick loved it all because I asked him 4-5 times if it was good, but then he ignored me the other 4-5 times I asked. Maybe he doesn’t like it after all.

No wonder he doesn’t want me making dinner.

Easiest meal ever (I’m making it tonight)
Sweet potatoes (poked with a knife in a few spots) nuked in the microwave (google the time based on how many potatoes), whole chicken cooked in the oven with a seasoned salt all over it for about 90 min to 2 hours. Corn on the cob boiled on the stove.
No skillz necessary.

I don’t touch raw chicken, so I’ll buy the deli rotisserie chix.
