How YOU doin’ today?

Me? Frankly, I’m kind of tired but that’s par for the course.

This morning, it was a mad rush to get out the door because I was volunteering at Lil-O’s co-op.

For breakfast, I chugged down an espresso and reheated last night’s dinner: Turkish slider burgers, sauteed mushrooms, and broiled asparagus.

After chasing Lil-O and his friends around the playground and catching some rays, I came home and reheated leftover sous vide rib eye and stir-fried veggies for lunch.

I spent the rest of the afternoon editing content for the upcoming iPad cooking app and accompanying my mother-in-law to another appointment. It’s annoying to wait two hours to see a doc, and then have the actual check-up be completed in 10 minutes. Argh.

When I returned home in the evening, it was close to 6 p.m. Luckily, I had a package of pastured pork spare ribs defrosted in the fridge and my dependable pressure cooker.

I seasoned the sectioned ribs with salt, pepper, and Sunny Paris

…and seared them in some duck fat. Then, I added jarred marinara sauce, bone broth, and a splash of Red Boat Fish Sauce. I covered the pot and cooked it on high pressure for 20 minutes.

To make the cheater ribs kinda fancy, I sprinkled on chopped parsley. Garnish is so 80s.

For my veggie side, I nuked some green beans with a little bone broth and seasoned the dish with Sunny Spain, salt, butter, and red pepper flakes.

I’m all for these quick and easy dinners.

Before I hit the sheets, I want to sincerely thank everyone for voting for me as Best Food Photography on a Blog in The 2012 Homies!  I’m truly grateful for all my readers and am honored to be part of such a supportive community. Hugs to you!
