Rib tickler.

This morning, I got up early to prepare a recipe from Gina H. that calls for Short Ribs - you know, the big nasty-looking rack of ribs that tastes oh-so-yummy once prepared. I was trying to get it in the crockpot before the kids were up. But the girls heard me and wandered into the kitchen as I was getting the ribs out of the fridge. One of the girls asked the other to teach her some letters in cursive, and they seemed safely pre-occupied, so I began to chop the ribs into 3-rib sections...trying to be subtle with the sound of the knife-whacking. I feared that if they noticed what I was doing, we might have two instant vegetarians on our hands.

I was almost home free...the final WHACK...when I felt my 6-year-old's eyes on me. Caught in the act, I asked, "What?" Expecting an "ewwwwww," I braced myself for the worst.

Her response was matter-of-fact:
"OK mom, I think that's officially dead."

- Shelley
P.S. The recipe: Two racks of short ribs, one bottle of ale or other dark beer, 1 can of diced tomatoes, cook on low in crockpot all day. Season with salt and pepper. And yes, it is tasty!!!

That happened at my house. Kind of. My dad had been duck hunting. I was 3 or so and napping. My mom had hoped to "take care of" the duck before I awoke. They found me standing at the sink looking at Duck. They were quiet. "Quick, give me your knife," I said. My already large-eyed mother asked why, and I told her, "So I can cut out its quacker, put it in my pocket and quack whenever I want to." -e
