Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces ribs, 2/3 cup rice, and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Ready For Friday

Keegan's bed was just delivered. They were nice enought to call and give me a half hour window. So I finished up work for the day and escaped. I'm not lounging around here but it does give me a leg up on other things like going to the bank before picking up Keegan and going grocery shopping earlier in the hopes he is better behaved. We usually plan the menu for the weekend in advance. But tomorrow is our first CSA pickup so we are waiting to see what we get so we can plan around it. I joined a different group this year and we bought a share that includes a loaf of bread. I am also interested to see the a la carte items they will offer to members (baked items, jams, maple syrup, etc.).
We have both kids again this weekend. Jeff asked to switch so he can see Isabelle for Father's Day. I have a businees trip next week so Tom and I arranged so I can have Keegan as much as possible beforehand. But I will drop him earlier on Father's Day. More than anything else holidays are about spending time whenever possible. Although Keegan will be bestowing gifts and card on his daddy, I know it is the time they are together that they both treasure above all. And Tom's parents are coming to visit so it works out where they will get extra time with Keegan as well. Hopefully the weather will hold out and we can all get some more good playground time in.
