I love long weekends, don't you? I love having that "extra" day to not set the alarm, hang out with family and friends, and make/eat delicious food.
This past long weekend, Hubby spent his time in the bush. With the military. And hundreds of children. Not my idea of a good time, that's for sure, but he had a lot of fun, and if he's happy, I'm happy.
The only part he doesn't like? Eating his meals out of a bag for five days.
I feel so bad for Hubby when he comes home from military exercises. He's exhausted and in need of a rest. I try to make coming home special for him. He gets a hot shower, clean clothes, and a nice home-made dinner. I'm talking meat and potatoes kind of dinner. You know, man stuff. So, that's exactly what he got yesterday. Meat and potatoes, or, ribs and warm potato salad.
The recipe for the rib sauce is one of our family's favourites. My mom got it from my Grandma, and it's one that gets made all the time (although, usually with pork chops instead of ribs). The inspration for the warm potato salad came from one of our favoutie dishes at a local restaurant. Both are super easy, and oh so tasty!
