Nancy left some short ribs at my place last this weekend and so last night I rubbed them with Willy's marinade and minced fresh garlic and threw them back in the fridge. This morning I threw them in the crock pot on low with about a half cup of water for 8ish 9ish hours (cover in carrots, but not celery, they didn't quite make it) and VOILA! yummy dinner. A whole crock pot full. Then I threw the rest of my asparagus in the oven (lay them in a 9x13, spread olive oil, salt and pepper and parmesan cheese over them, bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until tender but firm). I also made some garlic butter (mash fresh garlic into butter with fork, add parsley and oregano) and used it on broiled toast for a garlic toast.
I couldn't stand the idea of eating one portion of this huge meal so I sent out a text to see if anybody wanted to come over for dinner. Kay and Josette were available yay! and we had dinner and then we walked to Grand Ole' Creamery for ice cream cones and made it in the nick of time just before they closed for the night and then we walked back and had a lovely fire (only slightly smokey) and then Cory and Chad stopped by after not catching any fish in Lake Nokomis and they chatted for a while and then went home to Mankato and now I'm wondering if everybody gets smelly pee after they eat asparagus?
