. . . living here who does all his own cooking and doesn’t eat in the dining room.

Since the only things I can cook are toast, bacon and eggs, and corned-beef hash, I asked him how to do some pork ribs I’d picked up the day before to assuage my hunger for these delicacies. I cut the slab into three packages of five ribs each and stored two bundles in the freezer.

He told me he doesn’t like to do dishes and, after I lauded his foresight, he said use a sheet of alum foil to cover any sort of baking pan and set in a 300 degree oven for a couple of hours. Since I like ’em dry, I rubbed some salt, pepper, oregano and garlic salt on them while the oven heated, tossed them in and it all worked out. The kitchen gave me a cup of potato salad and I poured a glassful of Gatorade/cranberry juice and life was good. Next time I’ll pour a Stella Artois.

Am I now a chef? No. But I can add baked ribs to my list of can-do. And no dishes to do.
