~ Slow Cooker Sunday ~ Sloppy Second Ribs!

~ Slow Cooker Sunday ~ Sloppy Second Ribs!

So the Dancing Daughter is home safely from the music festival and had a wonderful time. She and her friend even made the Triple J Facebook page (bottom left with the black nail polish)!


They were 2nd from the front in the mosh pit for hours and sheer exhaustion has now set in :)

Lucky ducks, these girls stayed with my Dad and Step Mum and were treated to smoker ribs on Friday night. These are definitely Sunday sloppy seconds to my Dad’s ribs, but for a throw ‘em in and get on with your day type slow cooker Sunday (i.e. make 2 cakes, cookies, steel cut oats, stewed fruit, dinner, clean the bathroom and do 6 loads of laundry), these are certainly worth the effort 5 minutes it takes to get some ribs on the ready!

I wish you all a wonderful week ahead full of joy, peace, family, food and fun ♥

    OMG these are so delicious! I made them for the family last week and they were gone in minutes. Next time I know to make more. This is definitely a keeper!
