There are many people that follow my blog from different countries around the world!! So for those of you who don’t know who Gisele Bundchen is, she is Tom Brady’s wife, a supermodel and for those of you who don’t know who Tom Brady is…he is the quarterback for the New England Patriots…The Patriots are playing against the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl this Sunday!! And of course, being from New England, I want the Patriots to win!!I know many people don’t like Tom Brady, maybe because he always has his hand on Gisele’s bum🤣😂… But he seems like a good family man and is kind to his mother😉This is my inspiration for my super bowl outfit…Gisele and I are sooo much alike😂…we both love plaid, we both take yoga and we both love family…
A red and blue plaid flannel shirt with a navy knit top under it, of course, jeans, a Patriots scarf, and red ballet flats and a Patriots knit hat, which didn’t look as good on me as it did on Gisele, so I didn’t wear it in the photo:)Even though Gisele could be my daughter, I can still get inspiration from her outfit and make it my own…It’s so hard to find fashion for women in their 60’s, most of it is dowdy…why not get inspiration from the fashion trenders and modify it⁉️ So now that Gisele and I have our outfits…GAME ON let’s make some ribs…This is Victor’s recipe for Baby Back Ribs, he loves to cook and eat meat…thank goodness because I don’t!
Baby Back Ribs (this recipe came from Epicurious.com)
- 1 rack of pork baby back ribs.
- Dry rub (you can use whatever spices you like, but
- definitely don’t leave out the brown sugar)
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1/2 tablespoon or less of cayenne pepper (unless you
- like it HOT)
- 1-2 tablespoons chili powder
- mix it all up
PREPARATIONPrep the ribs: (often done the day before) On the back of the ribs will be a very thin but very tough membrane that you must remove. You can’t really see it well, but trust me that it’s there. I usually use a knife to pry up a corner of the membrane, then I just pull it down the entire length of the ribs. Sometimes it tears and you have to try a few times, but you definitely don’t want to skip this step unless you want to deal with the membrane while you’re EATING. Once the membrane is removed, put the dry rub all over the ribs (both sides) and rub it in. The meat will take on some of the colors in the dry rub and look a little reddish. Wrap the ribs in some heavy duty tin foil and let them hang out in the fridge til you’re ready to cook them. Cook the ribs: At 250 degrees, place the ribs wrapped securely in tin foil onto a cookie sheet (sometimes juice/fat can escape the tin foil) and place them in the oven. cook for 2 hours. After 2 hours, pull them out and open the tin foil to take a look. At this point you can add a little apple juice on top of them, but that’s not really necessary. Re-wrap them, and put them back in for another 1/2 hour. Pull them out again and open the tin foil completely. At this point you can brush some BBQ sauce on them, or leave them the way they are. Crank up the heat to 350 and put the ribs back in the oven with the tin foil open. After half an hour, they’re done! You can always do this last part on a BBQ, but watch the ribs and make sure they don’t burn from the sugar.
All ready for the game, tender and flavorful!!Here is my Tom Brady❤️ And again, Victor enjoying his food..see my last post for the dessert he enjoyed👍
Let’s talk about the game now!! I don’t know much about football, but this I know…. Ram player, Nickell Robey-Coleman, made a big mistake…during the pregame interviews, he said, “Tom Brady’s age has definitely taken a toll on him”…need I quote more, he just ruined it for his team…You never want to say that Tom Brady could lose the game because he’s too old…that is like putting a fire under him that no one can put out and it’s almost guaranteed that he and the Patriots will win the game!! GAME ON…Thank you Nickell!!
