menu for feb 4 & 6

the ribs are in the oven for a nice slow braise and i'm very excited! i took a little creative license with my grandmother's recipe and i think they will be stellar. the mac & cheese is almost ready - i just need to find a big enough vessel to mix it all up in - could be challenging... so here's the menu for the week - one of my favourite recipes of all time for friday and some classic, tailgate fare to celebrate super bowl sunday


honey/garlic/ginger braised spareribs from shani's farm, with sesame roasted broccoli and basmati rice

i guess it's good i'll probably be snowed in tomorrow because i have a lot of baking & prep work to do - i tend to get carried away for festivities (aka super bowl). i'm already planning homemade corned beef to celebrate st. patty's day, it's a two week process! and lots of fun things for valentine's day too.
if you want to pre-order anything, give me a shout and i'll set it aside so i don't have any sad faces when the mac & cheese is gone!
