Some people swear by a dry rub for their ribs, I love ribs with a dry rub, but I still like saucy ribs.  :smileytongue:

How do you like your ribs?

Do you have any sides you always serve with them?  :smileyhappy:

I also like both the dry rub and the sauce. I usually make slow cooked country ribs in a sauce because they are cheaper. I tend to make more bbq chicken on the grill. I have a recipe for chicken wings that are rubbed then sauced that I use on full chicken pieces that are delish. My family eats any type of bbq sauce, but I prefer my homemade asian bbq. When in a hurry, I use the low fat Kraft or Wegman's brand. Gotta have coleslaw with the bbq! DH prefers my mayo-free coleslaw so that is my staple for him (kids don't eat it).

I've heard that a few people mix a few differnt varieties of Bush's grilling beans to make a perfect side.

Do you think your family might like that?   :smileyhappy:

What is in your homemade potato salad, JaieLyn?  :smileyhappy:

My coleslaw has just equal parts of oil, vinegar, and sugar (splenda). I also do an asian version using sesame oil and rice wine vinegar.

The asian bbq has sesame oil, green onion, garlic, ketchup, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and gingerroot. There is a mexican version also with chilies, cumin, chili powder, etc. They are both Pampered Chef recipes. Both yummy!

You're my kind of cook, and nobody else can duplicate your recipes, can they? :smileywink:

Have you ever overfilled your bowl/pan by adding ingredients that sound good, JaieLyn?  :smileysurprised:

I eat my spaghetti from a plate, but it makes sense to eat it from a bowl.  I think there would be fewer spills.:smileysurprised:

Every diner I worked at served it from a plate though. :smileyhappy:

Do you like to serve bread with your spaghetti, garlic bread or a roll?  :smileyhappy:

Have you ever served breadsticks with the spaghetti? 

I like it when they wrap bacon around the breadsticks before baking.   Does that sound good to you, JaieLyn?

:smileylol:  Is oyeeoh another way to say olive oil?  :smileywink:

I remember eating at an Italian restaurant in Chicago where they served olive oil with rosemary to dip bread in. 

It was delicious.  :smileytongue:
