I like the feel of a warm bowl of food. It’s comforting, just like a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Sometimes my favorite type of dinner “party” is a few friends on my sofas, in our sweats, with warm bowls of yummy food in our hands. And for dessert, there might just be a big bowl (or two) of M & M’s. And to cap it all off, a really bad, yet very entertaining reality TV show in the background. Ah . . . perfect!
And there you have it. Truth is, I haven’t has one of these evenings in years, and I really miss them! I think I’ll make that a 2012 New Years Resolution. Yes I will . . . I’ll have sofa dinner parties with warm bowls of delicious comfort foods! In fact, let’s have one this weekend, shall we?
Up to 4 days and at least 2 hours ahead: Sear and braise the ribs.
As with many braised dishes and stews, they often only get better the next day!
