In honour of our new home (and dream kitchen), we’ve been engaging in some true Gourmandise these last few nights. On the weekend, Kevin made me a fabulous steak dinner, which I hoovered in too quickly to take a picture of it and share. So this will be my official welcome home post. We decided to BBQ, and what could be more appropriate on a Tuesday night than some ribs and a glass of wine?
I think we’ve finally found the perfect rib technique…boil them for 45 minutes, then grill them with tons of sauce for about 15 minutes. They are tender, but still crispy and saucy. We’re lazy and just use Diana’s chicken and rib sauce, which is always delicious. We also perfected the baked potato this weekend. The key is to use russets and rub them with olive oil before popping them in a 375F oven uncovered for about 45 minutes. Crusty skins with a buttery inside every time!
Words can’t express how happy I am to have a real kitchen, one that comes complete with a gas stove and oven, a vintage butcher block island and room for my huge new wine glasses (which make wine drinking even more fun, if that is possible). Next…time to fire up the oven and bake something sweet.
