It was not my plan to post a recipe this late in the day. It was not my plan to share this recipe at all. It was not my plan to use this recipe for my ribs. I was going to make our usual ribs – slow baked for a few hours, then finished off over an open fire on the grill. Yeah, that was the plan. But Mother Nature had other plans. From out of nowhere, a cold front moved in. The sky turned dark as night. Streaks of lightening lit up an angry sky. Thunder boomed – rattling the windows. In a matter of minutes, the temperature dropped fifteen degrees. The clouds opened up and hail pelted the ground. Hubby and I looked at each other – no firing up the charcoal grill today. The last thing either of us wanted was for Hubby to be standing in a pool of water with long-handled barbecue tongs in his hand. Bad combination with a lightening storm.
