To go along with the ribs, I braised some cabbage. A head sliced about ¼", some slivered carrots, an onion diced, and some of my buckboard bacon fried crispy and chopped.

This was brought to a boil, heat reduced and allowed to simmer for maybe 10 minutes covered. Then uncovered for 5 minutes. Boiled up some corn from the freezer (which I'm about out of)...

Thank you all for your more than generous comments, they are greatly appreciated. I've been quite busy lately and today was no exception. Haven't had a lot of time to catch up on here, but maybe next week.

Again, thank you all...😃
 
That looks to be some mighty fine eating. I am sure the zoo was happy.
