Let's batten down the hatches, chop some logs for the fire and fill our fridges with milk. Fall is coming people and supposedly we are in for an El Nino winter.
I'm officially ceasing to have salad thoughts anymore and focusing my appetite on meat. Slow cooked and stick to your ribs, falling off the bone is what I'm talking about.
Today myself and a gaggle of other bloggers are celebrating a virtual baby shower. David from Spiced Blog (yes there are other male bloggers) and his wife will soon be parents, and lives will be changed forever in an awesome way David. I promise.
The baby shower theme is Dude Food, which luckily I can relate to almost too well. I've never met David in person, but I'm pretty sure he'd approve of these short ribs braised in boozy apple cider and served on top of some whipped sweet potato mash.
The sauce is what's left after four hours of cooking, and it works.
Shred the meat from the bones taking your time to get every last piece.
David, enjoy every minute with your new son because he'll go from diapers to soccer shorts in a nano second.
Choose your battles carefully and have fun!
