A Great Recipe

First I must give credit to First Man at Two Men and a Little Farm for this marvelous recipe:
Crockpot Spare Ribs

I made it several weeks ago, took photos for a post, but selling the house took precedence so its just now getting posted.

Here are the ribs out of the crockpot in preparation for putting them under the broiler for 5 minutes.

Here is my plate with ribs, mashed potatoes, green beans and a bean salad.

My husband never orders these if we go out.  He says they're too messy.  The meat was falling off the bone and easily eaten with a fork and knife.  No need to pick them up at all.  This one rack which weighed over 2 lbs was enough for two meals.

Thank you again, First Man.

Update on the Big Move:  
Contract all signed. Settlement set for June 30th.  
House inspection next Monday.  
Saturday we sign the paper work and put down our deposit 
for our retirement apartment at Vantage House.  
Daughters coming in two weeks to decide what 
they want to take home. 
 Furniture to sell and give away.  
New furniture (smaller) to be ordered. 
 Lots of sorting and deciding on what we really need to hold on to.  
That's the hardest part of this downsizing.
