This year was special for several reasons. Randy and his friends were assigned to one 8 men room. We found additional mattress and it became home to more boys. Find someone who is not like the other.... Yes. It's Pastor Chris. He led us in deep meaningful conversations with wonderful series of sermons. We are so blessed to have him and Elder Ed who rocks our praise team! God has blessed our church over the years and we have been enjoying our CBCC retreat year after year.
This was my table that I sponsored! Those are my plates and chargers from garage sale. The table cloth was a dollar and the tea cups are mine as well. The centerpiece? I love this idea that I got from Jean but it' a shape form decorated by real flowers (designed by Jane Nicola) This sweet grandmother is Evelyn who is Jane's mother. She is member of our church now and we love having her part of our group.
They just hang, talk, laugh and play basketball after church. Life is good for these boys... Missing the other usual suspects here though..Jon, Logan, Caleb...
Looking good! This is after 2.5 hours in the oven! Short ribs were served with garlic mash potatoes and steamed broccoli!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I picked up bone in short ribs from Costco. I have never bought my short ribs for my Korean Kalbi jheem from anywhere other than from a Korean market... but I wanted to try a new recipe today. Season short ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven. I also added seasoning to my flour mix and coated the meat in all sides. Placing the meat in two at a time, sear the meat. Add diced onions and carrot mix ( I didn't have any celery but you can add that as well) brown the mixture. (Add tomato paste optional), stir in red wine and some chicken stock....scraping all the burned bits from the pot. Reduce the liquid to half . Add a sprig of rosemary and thyme with seared meat and transfer to oven. Cook until short ribs are tender (around 3 hours). It's important to spoon fat from the surface before serving.
