posting the family secrets

I can't remember who I promised this to right now, so I'll just post
it up for everyone. Substitute ribs for whatever other meat, use sauce
as you see fit, etc. Credits to Tommy & Noriko Boyer.

GRITS - Glazed Ribs in Teriyaki Suace

5 lbs. Pork Ribs (beef or chicken)
1 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 Tbsp. sesame seed oil
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. minced ginger root
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. powdered cayenne pepper
1 tsp. flaked red pepper
1 bell pepper sliced

Cut ribs into serving portions and trim off excess fat. Combine remaining
ingredients in a pan an cook over low heat for about 15 minutes, melting
sugar. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour sauce over ribs and marinate
over night in the refrigerator.

Remove ribs from sauce and bake at 325 for 30 to 45 minutes. Pour off
melted fat. Bring the sauce to a boil above the stove and use 3 Tbsp. cold
water mixed with 2 Tbsp. cornstarch to thicken.

Glazing - dip ribs into thickened sauce and glaze under the broiler.
Repeat glazing process.

In other happy fun news my parents just showed up at my doorstep with
about a hundred pounds of shrimp they'd gotten from down da baya,
and I got a few pounds off of them to freeze, yay.

to my dear friends..

Very soon you will not have to hear me bitch about Christians on
a daily basis anymore. Until that point, however, god speed.

So the other day, I was bored and looked up the website of one
of my coworker's churches. (I think the process for that one
in particular was catholic->cocaine->pentecostal->this.)
Don't ever ever do this if you want to maintain some hope, some
shred that you work with sane people. The baptists are invading,
and if we don't watch out, they'll try to buy all our politicians and
brainwash the children and (well just look at this, okay?)

It's not religious folk I tend to have problems with, I've even learned
to deal with the "Hey Candice you're welcome to come pray with us
if you want" out of the girls, and the non-evangelists and the catholics
I'm generally fine with. The ones who would rather live their lives as
good people, instead of being out to Win Souls. Evangelism must be
addictive, and it really seems to be a religion in and of itself, making
believers, getting all into the rapture, being Saved. (Is that movie out
yet? I keep seeing previews.) It's disturbing.

breathing fire

I keep having food guilt trip me into actually cooking it. Result: spiciest
food I have ever personally cooked. Woo!

1 small can ro-tel tomatoes, extra hot (chile + habanero)
1/2 jar of $decentpremadesauce (ragu, prego, etc)
3 links of Emeril's Habanero Sausage, sliced small.

Cook for some variant of time resembling a while (1 hour+) , and serve
over pasta. Mom and I tried this without the extra chiles but cooked
for at least 4 or 5 hours, which got the flavors of the sausage really
well into the red sauce. This is the kind of silly madness that happens
when you have italians marrying cajuns.
