That man of mine can really cook! A few days ago, sitting out in the sunshine next to Scoopy, he brought up one of his favorite cooking implements, our folding solar oven… and one of his favorite meals, slow-cooked pork ribs. As he waxed poetic, I smiled and said “why don’t you take charge of that for our Memorial Day dinner?”
And so he did. I took care of the “sides”: Quinoa and Black Bean Salad with Smokey Lime Dressing (which I always pronounce to be my very favorite food after my first bite) and Pan-Asian Slaw (newly added to the recipe archive). The slaw is a particularly good summer recipe, quick (10 minutes) and simple, an excellent potluck dish. Here is our day, in pictures:
The solar cooker on the TV tray in the driveway.
The seasoned ribs after 3 1/2 hours of cooking.
All cut up and ready to eat.
A good-looking plate!
