2 Saturday night miracles.
First. USC edged out Stanford 31-28 in a heart attack of a game. Phew!
Second. Gotham Killer Ribs turned out to be a major hit. I’d give it a 4 out of 5 for my first time out with the ribs. The Bone Suckin’ Sauce is truly stuff made in heaven, and what makes the whole experience worthwhile.
A couple of things I’d do different with the ribs next time, and I’d probably get a 5 out of 5. First, I’d use a more flavorful beer in brining instead of whatever people left in my fridge from the last party. I don’t think Dos Equis works very well. Secondly, I wouldn’t be so stingy with the Bone Suckin’ Sauce. I’d lather the tangy goodness on THICK on the grill. The whole jar for 2 racks of ribs would be perfect.
Another surprise hit at the dinner was the Pillsbury’s Grands! Biscuit Southern Style. They were massively delicious. Slightly crispy outside, fluffy and moist inside, and buttery enough you don’t need to add anything else. Drooool.
Shane and Seren brought the marvelous Mrs. Smith’s Oreo Cream Pie for desert. Wow. It was awesome, and the perfect way to top of the meal and kick off Star Wars!
