Ra-ra-ra-ribs! AND…A Week in Review

Just in time for the weekend, a super-d-duper easy and amazing (if I do say so myself) crock pot rib recipe.  But first, let’s recap the week, shall we?   :-)  Also, linking up with Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday!

Peaches n Cream

1.  Made some peaches n’ cream for the family.  Call me crazy, but I don’t like it.


2.  The Little Man wanted pink lemonade, but apparently he couldn’t wait for me to get a glass.

Better Homes & Gardens

3.  Got this in the mail on Wednesday.  Makes me smile :-D

Christmas Tree Craft

4.  Miss A wanted to make Christmas Trees for craft time.  How could I resist???  I LOVE Christmas.

5.  I made ribs on Thursday and dang were they good.  Fall off the bone good, literally. If you don’t make them, you’re missing out (recipe below).

Look yummy, don’t they?  A super simple and delicious recipe!  I didn’t even alter this one, but if you don’t like your barbecue sauce sweet, cut back on the brown sugar.  How was your week?
