My Yummy Local Life

{March 16, 2014}   Bread and Wine 10

Baby back ribs with Salad (with a ‘shiner’ of Cellar Dweller’s Tarantula Hawk)

Well, I’m a slacker and did not post anything last week- so sorry about that.

Baby Back Ribs on the Grill (included a sauce made from: BBQ sauce, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup, garlic, salt and pepper)- Par cooked for about an hour and a half in the oven, then finished up on the grill.


Salad: Spinach/greens, sweetened nuts, blue cheeses, blackberries, raspberry vinaigrette.


Side: Roasted Potatoes (not pictured), par cooked in the microwave then roasted in the oven.


Tasting notes:

Lisa: Everything was delicious, and I wanted to keep eating even after I felt full.  The wine was delicious (and definitely NOT the same as what was in the mystery shiner).  Thanks to Lindsey for having us over for dinner and providing the ingredients for the meal.

Gary: The Tarantula Hawk Zin was a little harsh at first but opened up nicely after a little accelerated aeration. Pour a glass or two, put the cork back in as deep as you can, then shake the bottle for a few seconds. Alternatively, you could just decant the bottle. Lisa had never seen me do this before, which explained the “what the hell are you doing?” look on her face.
