Sorry for the site crashes today! We are working on a few new exciting things for 2013 and Brian broke the code. Whoops. He’s sorry, so am I.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Lord, I love this day. I don’t know what it is, but there is something about celebrating a ballsy man who worked to better the world that just gets me going. This holiday means something. This man stood up for what he knew was right, even if others thought he was out of line.
And on a much lesser level, I am doing that today,too. I am standing up for spare ribs people. It’s ballsy, because everyone’s all “Baby back is where it’s at, spare ribs are lame.” You don’t have people saying that to you? I swear every time I’m at the meat case at the store someone next to me under their breath says something about choosing baby back ribs instead of spare ribs.
I have to right to choose any damn rib I please, and I don’t remember asking you if I was making a poor life choice by choosing spare ribs? The truth is, any rib can be tender, juicy and delicious if you give it the proper attention.
Today, we are taking spare ribs and we are rubbing them with a blueberry paste. Yep. Sure did.
And it is so flipping good. So my message to you today is to buy the ribs you want, regardless of others opinions. All ribs are equal, and all that jazz.
