They finally got him. Can you believe it? Almost 10 years later we finally get justice for all the lives lost in a senseless violent attack. I am so happy we found him and now the world is free of one less terror. Enough about that. It's Wednesday and I had a great day.:) I got to hang out with one of my friends for a much needed girls day. We lunched, had a glass of wine,mmmm, indulged in a pedi complete with a flower and topped it off with some shopping. What more could you ask for? I'll tell you........some ribs. I made them using Tyler Florence's Pineapple Glaze recipe with just a few changes. I used molasses instead of rum, white wine vinegar instead of rice wine vinegar, and crushed pineapple instead of whole. I must say it turned out to be so delicious. I have never made a sauce like this nor ribs and both were better than I expected.
No complaints from the toughest critic, my hubby. I saved the sauce and will definitely use it in the future for something else. Hmmm.. let me think...ahh wings!!! I bet it will be outstanding on wings. I hope you will try this glaze too! It is a little sweet, salty ,and tangy all at once and it sticks nicely to the ribs.
