Well, yesterday was fantastic. Besides turning BIG 6-0. I had so many well wishes from friends and family...MY son sang 'Happy Birthday' over the phone from Shanghai...so cool...it's been difficult to connect with him, as China blocks FACEBOOK lots of times.AND, Steve made a awesome dinner for me...PORK SHORT RIBS WITH YUMMY CRANBERRY BBQ SAUCE STUFF. This is the delightful recipe...good enough for company...fast and easy too. Got the idea from a recipe I read at ALLRECIPES...I've made some changes, that make it even better..YEAH!OK...here gos...get some pork ribs or beef ribs or chicken or ham. Steve fried our short ribs in a cast iron skillet in a little oil. When done...no longer pink. 1. Add i can jelly cranberry sauce to meat. 2. Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons prepared mustard. 3. Add about 1 teaspoon orange peel, torn into little pieces..ours were dried organic. 4. AND then add about 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. HEAT til the cranberry sauce melts and everything cooks together and is all over the meat. OK...that's it. ENJOY. It would be great with rice. Steve is such a great husband ...he also got me my favorite.... COCONUT CREAM PIE! WOW!! AND he bought me an Chehalis Apple Tree...he planted right outside of our back deck so I can watch it year around. Love you Steve.Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Jan
