It’s that time again…Foodie Friday over at Michael’s blog, Designs by Gollum! (Did you know Gollum is an author? Here’s her website, check it out! Her latest book, Mermaid’s in the Basement, is on my summer reading list!) Anyhoo, if you need some yumalicious recipes head on over and ennnnjoy!
Also today is Beautiful Life Friday over at Inspired Rooms with Melissa. She’s talking about entertaining for real people today so I thought this would be a good link! The Husband loves to entertain!
The Husband is a grillin machine already this summer! He decided to grill ribs last weekend…He paid a visit to his friendly neighborhood butcher who hooked him up with some great ribs.
There were several steps he took which I’m going to tell you at the end of the post. They were boring for pictures but necessary, or so I’m told.
He also grilled corn on the cob…to do this he first soaked them in water then carefully peeled back the husks and removed most of the silks. Then put the husks back into place and plopped those fresh picked golden ears of corn right on the grill!
I went to my very tiny container herb garden and pinched a bunch of dill and chopped it and added it to softened butter. Dill Butter…it’s really good Peeps! (It’s so sad that in my entire yard I have one tiny corner of my deck that gets ample sunlight to grow herbs…I’m tellin ya, the rest of the yard is shade, shade, shade!
I love dill…
Here’s the dill butter…
Oh, but back to The grillin Husband …
I made this roasted potato salad which I’ll blog later…(Can you tell I get bored with grilling???)
But here are The Husbands beeeautiful barbecued ribs!!! No matter how boring, the results were stellar!
I think ribs are a mans food…Emma and I sat at the table trying to be dainty while eating the ribs…not possible. Messiness aside, the taste was amazing~
