Moving, Camping, and much more…

For the past 3 weeks I have been helping my parents move out of their house. Why you ask, well they are not young any more.

They lived in ther last house for about 15 years and have now decided to spend the rest of their lives in a warmer climate. Can’t blame them.

I flew into Missouri and helped my parents pack-up their house and then helped to drive one of their trucks to Florida. So now I am spending time with them in their camper until I can catch a flight home. But I have found you can still cook some wonderful meals even n a small space and minimum equipment.

You just have to be resourceful. It can be really fun.

Last night I fixed some Country Pork Ribs on the grill. But that was not all, you got to have some baked potatoes  to go along with them ribs.  So I oiled, salt and peppered the potatoes and wrapped them in tin foil. I did the same thing with a large onion, boy did that onion turn out yummy…

I cooked the potatoes and onions for about 20 minutes before putting the ribs on.  The country ribs were simple dressed with salt and pepper and garlic powder.

Second Stage, throwing the Meat on the grill, YUM

I moved the potatoes and onions to the side and placed the ribs in the nice hot spot on the grill and seared the outside of each rib then covered them and let the cook though…

for a while then I put just a good jar of Bar-b-Que sauce on them and let that caramelize on the outside.

Sorry for not having a finished picture of a nice plate of food, but everyone just dived right in before I could get a plate set up.  Trust me there was nothing left.  I was amazed at what you can come up with for dinner when feeding 5 people in such a small space.  The grill was a life saver.
