Superbowl Sunday is this week. And while this post might be a subtle dRAMitization of which team I might want to win, it’s also about the one of the least tempeRAMental recipes that I’ve ever made. A slow cooker recipe that’s panoRAMically pleasing to the palate! Hopefully you haven’t stopped reading, thinking that this is an overdRAMitized post containing melodRAMitized hints of who I gRAMmatically believe will win the Superbowl this Sunday.

If you didn’t get it, here’s a bigger hint:

Hopefully you are getting ready for some great football, fun commercials and lot’s of good food!

And I know my son especially will be enjoying his time in front of his electronics. The boy has had SO much more homework since I took away his XBox and keyboard during the week except for limited occasions. He’s actually been working on PROJECTS!!

And he’s helping his sister with her homework! And it’s AWESOME!!

no electronics

One of the best things I’ve seen parents doing lately is saying NO! to electronics with their teens. I’ll meet with about 400 junior high aged students over the next couple of months. I’ve been hearing so many stories of parents who have done away with expensive iPhones, etc. and instead have their kids using old school flip phones. Sometimes it’s okay to say no to electronics as a parent! It actually equals good parenting! I tried for so long to not take away my son’s electronics. I tried cutting him down, alloting certain times he could be on his electronics, taking it away for awhile, and then finally after so many chances on getting his homework done and grades up I just took it away during the week except for special times. The nice thing was, he was to the point that he knew he was not getting done what he needed to, and hasn’t fought me too hard. Some days he does. And he is pushing hard to get a TV installed in his room but I fire back with article after article of scientific based evidence on why he shouldn’t. “But my cousin has one and HE’S fine!” he will exclaim. And I fire back with three scientific articles on the psychological damage of comparing yourself to others. You can’t go against data. Mom win. 🙂

slow cooker boneless pork ribs

Back to the ribs though. I had never had boneless BBQ ribs, but these were good. Kindof like ribs, kindof like eating a pork chop. But definetely fall apart delicious! We paired ours with some twice baked potatoes and a salad.


Prep time: 10 minutes; Cook Time: High 4-5 hrs, Low 6-8 hrs; Servings: 8

2-3 lbs boneless pork ribs (about 8 in a package)

2 cups barbeque sauce (we used Stubb’s)

1/4 cup water

1/2 cups barbeque sauce (reserved)

In a slow cooker, arrange the pork ribs in a single layer. Pour the 2 cups barbeque sauce and water over the ribs. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low 6-8 hours. Brush pork ribs with additional reserved barbeque sauce prior to serving if desired.
