Last weekend Ryan had to leave on Sunday for work, so we had Football Dinner on Saturday. We also had to wait until he got back form work (Thursday – ugh) to do the rating, so that means we are a little late in getting to the rating.
Here it is:
|Cleveland Browns – Rib Chili & Homemade Bread|
|Bonus – Packers||3||3|
|Bonus – Murphy||1||1|
Overall I feel pretty happy with my score. He down-graded me on “Complementary Items” (a category that he created, and that only he fully understands) because we didn’t have dessert. I would like to point out that Ana was in charge of dessert, not me. That girl is bad mo-jo for my football dinners!!!
For the Rib Chili, which I am not certain is a real thing, but sounded like a delicious idea, I made chili and then added beer-braised country style spare ribs. Here is the recipe that I used for the ribs. I liked the ribs so much, I adapted the recipe for this weekend’s meal. More on that later!!!! It was a nice change of pace from regular chili, but I think that I like the beer-braised ribs so much that I would rather eat them as a separate item.
For the chili, you could probably use any recipe that you like. I typically use two kinds of meat for my chili, but because I was adding the rib meat, I only used ground beef.
I served the chili with homemade bread and mashed potatoes.
