Hi, Friends! This is a short ribs recipe from my Facebook friend, Mely, of Mexico In My Kitchen! It just looked so delicious, and after I was introduced to tomatillos in an enchilada recipe of Rick Bayless', I was very excited to try something else new. I'm sure that sometime in my life I have eaten short ribs, but I couldn't tell you when, and I've never even shopped for short ribs before, so this was new and fun for me. Then there's the chopped cilantro to go in the sauce made from the charred tomatillos. You can't get much better! It is well worth the cooking time. Click on the picture for Mely's recipe, and check out the rest of her blog while you're there!
I served this dish with pinto beans and onion, "sticky" Calrose rice, my favorite, and crusty bread that I love. I call this my Mexican-Asian-American Fusion! To make this truly authentic Mexican, Mely serves with rice, refried beans and corn tortillas. I love all of those things, too. My sister and I had leftovers as burritos in whole wheat tortillas, adding lettuce, refried beans, and sour cream to the short ribs and green sauce. It was a truly delicious and convenient second dinner!
Now...here's the little miracle at 11 months old! Sawyer is almost one year old! She went through so much her first few months, and now she is such a happy baby, and very independent, and she gets more beautiful every day! The bottom picture is a sleepy baby ready for church! I love every minute I get to spend with her!
You know, the weather is getting warmer, so the dinners will be getting lighter. It's almost time for gorgeous Summer produce to be in and I can't wait to do different things with that. I'm thinking I may start doing some light baking for a while, and everyone loves that! I'm helping a cousin set up an online business, and also getting ready for an upcoming vacation. I can't wait to show you pictures and tell you about it! I'm trying to come up with some "road trip" snacks. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
Later, Friends! Dished With Love, Denise!
A place to share my favorite things...friends and food, dogs, college football, and my inspiration, Sawyer, the most beautiful little girl in the world!
