Boneless pork ribs over asparagus with cucumber salad…YUM!

Tonight’s Sunday supper was cooked as more of a therapy session for me than anything.  The two things I love to do most when I am feeling stressed are run, and cook.  Since I had just gone grocery shopping after work today, I decided cooking a nice Sunday supper would be a good idea since my goal was to cook something new each week!

There’s no real “recipe” for this dish, but here goes.  Season your ribs with your favorite BBQ seasoning, salt, pepper and a touch of lime juice.  Heat your cast iron skillet with a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to a high heat and sear the ribs on each side.  Reduce heat and cook through until done.

For the cucumber salad, use your peeler and make long strips of cucumber (discard the outer green part) that will look almost like a wide fettuccini noodle.  Place in a bowl.  Season with salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon of yogurt and lime zest.  Let chill for 30 minutes.

The asparagus I simply sautéed in extra virgin olive oil in a pan with salt, pepper, and minced garlic.  YUM!

The rest of my week was pretty blah.  My workouts were minimal besides my daily plank due to work stress, school starting, and my little one catching strep on her second day of school.  I’m hoping next week is better!  I’m linking up with Holly and Tricia for their weekly wrap.  Please run over and give their amazing pages some support!


How was your week?  Try any new recipes lately?

Have a great week everyone!

Cheers ❤

  2. Your Sunday suppers are always amazing. It looks like you’ve got a great kitchen helper too. I’m sorry to hear about the strep. At least it moves out pretty quickly once you get the antibiotics going. Here’s to a better week! Thanks for linking, Michelle!
