Tried my hand at some BBQ
The other day I was off and decided to cook! I am not a person that loves to cook, but I decided to tackle that bull by the horns. Since my Gee has been “traveling for COVID” I have had to do more cooking. On any given day when he is off work, he would call me to ask what I wanted to eat.
Now I have to fend for myself and the kids. While the children would not choose me as the main chef of the house, now they are left with little choice but to eat my cooking, lol.
My mother cooks as well, but it does not always suit the unique and developed palate of my 16-year-old. So she makes a lot of her own food (sandwiches) and does a pretty good job. With time I can see she will be a fine cook, better than her mom.
Back when I was her age, when other children were learning the art of homemaking, I perhaps spent way too much time with my nose in a book. I have never enjoyed the typical “woman’s work” so I hid behind a book.
I felt the need for some ribs, so I BBQ some beef ribs. They came out pretty handsome looking and quite tasty. I sent them to Gee – just to show off my skills.
I made my glaze with some BBQ sauce, some ketchup, and honey, it was amazing!
He was impressed!
The below image is my basmati rice with brown beans and okra from my garden with olives, shrimps, and some older tomatoes I needed to use.
All in all, I think I did ok and it was enjoyable!
As Andrew Zimmerman (Food Network chef) would say – if it looks good, eat it!
Be safe, be well, be blessed!
