BBQ Ribs (65)

Corn on the cob, mashed potato flowers, carrot stars, spicy bbq ribs, craisinettes.

Today’s bento is basically leftovers. I’m trying to use up some freezer items and had a couple of slabs of ribs that needed cooking.

My husband is not a fan of ribs (really not a fan of BBQ – crazy, huh?!) so I don’t make them often. To help make them more appealing to hubby I made a spicy sauce and added some crushed red pepper flakes as well as a pepper-heavy steak seasoning. He loved them!

I did have some of everything left from dinner so I put some of the rib meat in today’s bento along with corn on the cob, potato flowers, carrot stars and; to finish off this ideal meal, a little sweetness with some craisinettes.

The potato flowers are a simple way to use leftover potatoes and make them finger-food. Pipe or spoon leftover mashed potatoes onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet. Baked at 350 until edges are browned and potatoes are dry.

I like to top them with a little butter and Lawry’s garlic salt while they are still hot. These may be refrigerated or frozen for later bento use and are good hot or cold.

Have a great day everyone!
