How do you spend a snow day? I'm such a homebody that I really don't mind spending a day stuck inside the house. I get all excited about everything that I can accomplished without the temptation of leaving to run errands.
Last Saturday even though we planned for snow and it didn't really happen - I still treated the day as if it were a snow day. I stayed home and cleaned out the file cabinet, organized some boxes in the basement, put pictures in the photo album, organized business receipts from last year and did lots and lots of menu planning.
When I say that I did lots of menu planning - I mean that I literally have 7 weeks of meals planned!! I cannot tell you how excited I am about this. (I know - I'm a complete nerd.)
Menu planning takes so much time and having that task finished until the end of February is a huge time saver. (Most of the meals that I have planned are new recipes so you will get to see them on the blog soon.) I had a bunch of pinned recipes on Pinterest, some new cookbooks to test out and some new Cooks magazine recipes that I've been wanting to try. I am so excited about the next 7 weeks of meals.
These whiskey barbecue ribs were at the very top of the list of recipes that I wanted to make. I love how easy they were to throw together and my family loved how tender and tasty they were.
Whiskey Barbecue Ribs
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Whiskey
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 chopped onion
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon hot sauce
1/2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons butter
pinch of fennel seeds
Baby back ribs
Combine all ingredients, except ribs, in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.
Place ribs on foil lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour sauce over ribs. Cover tightly with foil. Bake 3 hours at 300.
Place under the broiler just until top begins to brown.
Serve with additional sauce.
Is your mouth watering yet? I apologize in advance for any undeniable cravings for barbecue ribs that you will have for the rest of the day. You're best bet is just to give in and make a batch of these for your yourself. Trust me. ;)
