I know I said I was only gonna post on Tues & Thurs for awhile, but this is an off week. I'm currently sitting here trying to kill time and not think about food (as I post a recipe on my food blog...I know. Shut up) waiting for my 1:15 colonoscopy appointment. Good times today people...good times. This will be #5 for me...I've become quite the pro!
It's good though. I need to find out what's up so we can readjust my medicine and get things working again without pain. I'm just S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G. I haven't eaten anything in 40 hours, and I won't be able to eat again until around 3:30-ish...the no food (and nasty drink the night before) are by FAR the worst part of this. The procedure itself is easy as pie. Mmmmmmm.....pie. With a side of cheeseburger.
Then, later in the week, Jesse and I are off to go visit Daddy-O at a port call! We're very excited about this. He's been gone a month, so spending 4-5 days with him will be a nice break before we have to say goodbye again for another month.
Anyway, these ribs? Awesome.
I was a little apprehensive about trying ribs without drenching them in BBQ sauce (I have since come to learn that there ARE Paleo friendly BBQ sauces out there, or I can just make my own...good to know), but the spice rub that goes with this is really good. It makes a lot, and since I absolutely did not make 4 lbs of ribs for just myself and Jesse, I had a lot of leftover. I've kept it and rubbed it on chicken breasts as well as pork that I've thrown in the slow cooker. It's a great spice combination to have handy!
Ok guys, I'm off to....well, you know.
Hope you have a better afternoon than I'm about to have :)
