BBQ Ribs are Better than Drugs Sunday July 4th, 2004

BBQ Ribs are Better than Drugs Sunday July 4th, 2004

This weekend Bob and I(read mostly Bob) made the best meal I think I have ever had. Or can remember. I bought everything at the St. Paul Farmer's Market including the meat and it was gorgeous.

The menu was as follows:

Flatbread w/ cucumber raita (a mild cucumber yogurt dip with red onion)

Margarita watermelon: Watermelon infused with Pátron(really fucking expensive tequila), triple sec, and lime shavings.

Roasted corn and jicama salad: Roasted corn on the grill, green onions, carrots, jicama, cilantro, and basil all diced and mixed. Topped with a lemon/lime/olive oil/salt and pepper dressing.

BBQ cabbage. Cabbage stuffed with butter, onion, and garlic powder and BBQ'd for 2 hours. (I guess it is a traditional thing to eat with BBQ)

BBQ Babyback Ribs: Soaked in a beer brine for 20 hours and rubbed down with two different rubs and slow cooked over charcoal and hickory chips for 3 hours.

Fresh Plum Napoleon: Fresh plums made into a jam. Then layer upon layer of puff pastry with cream and sliced plums in between.

Hopefully I can get some pictures and maybe a movie or two of the food. Yeah we had a digital video camera floating around.
