Today I tried ribs in the crockpot with a seasoning rub. If you have a couple of minutes in the morning, dinner doesn't get much better than this! This is the recipe that worked so well for us.

I baked mine all day in the crock pot. They were tasty without additional sauce, or still good with a touch of KC Masterpiece Classic sauce.
For sides, I made a marinated grape tomato salad, using some parsley my friend NeeCee sent over from her garden. It was sweet and tart and wonderful even though I am not a huge tomato fan. Thanks, NeeCee. I also made some zucchini latkes using various recipes on the Low Carb Friends board. I used soy flour since I am out of coconut flour right now. That is why they appear so dark in the photo. They really aren't burned, I promise. Those are extra good hot, but cold...well let's just say I didn't get rave reviews on those. John had called home tonight with a last minute errand. Unfortunately, the latkes were already in the frying pan when the phone rang. They got eaten anyway, helped along with a smidgen of low sugar ketchup, and we got some money in the bank.
For a snacky dessert tonight, we will have some homemade yogurt flavored with the McCormick vanilla, butter and nut flavoring. The taste is marvelous, especially with a sliced strawberry. Mmmm. Just another day of meals trying to keep my hubby healthy and not feeling deprived on his diabetic low carb plan. He is a happy camper tonight.
