Otex Stings

Note to self.. Check the eye drop bottle before applying. Three otex ear drops in the eye stings like hell.

Other than trying to remove the wax from my eyeballs today I decided to find a recipe to make ribs. Ribs are tough to come across these days. Years ago my mum used to go to the butchers and ask for the waste ribs (This was way before ribs were marketed as spare-ribs). I remember the ribs had almost zero meat on them so I'd always call them bones. Apparently that really embarrassed mum when I'd ask, in front of my teacher, if we were having bones for dinner; I suspect our teacher was one digit away from dialling social services.

You wouldn't believe how hard it has come to find some ribs which aren't in some marinade. Waitrose's meat counter was closed, ASDA don't have a butchers anymore (tramps) and Morrisons butcher seemed offended that I'd asked for "the waste meat" he pointed toward the back of the shop and exclaimed "over their" -  By the way that "their" was not a grammatical mistake, he was the exact sort of person that doesn't understand the difference between there and Their. I felt like reminding him about the numerous exams he must have failed to end up working at a fake butchers (they probably don't even have to cut the meat up) anyway I got the ribs and began the hunt for a recipe.

The things some people call a recipe are shocking, www.cooks.com have the following listed as a recipe:

1 pkg. 15-minute meat marinade
2/3 c. cold water
4 lb. pork spare ribs

How bad a cook do you have to be to need this sort of recipe? Surely this is more directions as apposed to a recipe, I wonder if someone somewhere is thinking: Ok I've got ribs, Water and 15 minute marinade...if only I had a recipe to turn this into a meal.

I wonder what the shortest recipe in the world is, may I offer up:

Cheese Crunch Suprise

  • 1 Pkt Of Wotsits (Cheetoes if your American)
  • 2 Slice of bread

If you beat it let me know in the comments.
