Soup Sabbatical

I've decided to take a break from soup making for a spell. Reasons?
It's hot.
I hate routine/schedules in the summer. Making soup once a week seemed like a routine-type activity to me.
It's really hot.
I wasn't eating as much soup as I would during the school year.
Because it's so freakin' hot!

Also, in an attempt to clean out my pantry, I have all this other soup to eat when I feel the urge.

Some proof we actually got some rain over the weekend. A pittance to add to the 1/100th of an inch we've received so far this month. Water restrictions, here we come!

DH is known for his rib makin' abilities and decided to try out a new technique he read in the newspaper a few days ago.

Crockpot ribs!

1. Take whatever ribs are on special at the grocery store and rub them with your choice of spices. Cut them up into serving portions (4-5 ribs a hunk).

2. Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray, put in the ribs, and cook 4 or 5 hours on high, or 8 hours on low.

3. At this point, the fat has cooked out of the ribs and they're almost ready to fall off the bone. Heat the broiler on your oven to high.

4. Drain ribs and coat with barbecue sauce, then run them under the broiler until they sizzle.

These were fantastic! We wished we had made more!
