How do you celebrate birthdays?! Do you do big parties with lots of presents? In our family, it means getting together and spending some time eating and having fun together! This past weekend, we got together with my mom & step-dad to celebrate my step-dads birthday which is coming up shortly! After deciding upon preparing ribs & brisket, I decided that we were going to have a full-on barbecue! So, I quickly started planning the rest of the menu!
In the end, we feasted on ribs prepared by the way of Jeni Eats, brisket prepared by the way of the Iowa Beef Council, mashed potatoes & gravy, sweet corn (from our freezer that we had done this past summer), and my Sweet & Smokey Baked Beans! Of course we had to follow that up with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake! YUM! It was all so good!
