Sunday was always a special day growing up. We would head to church in the morning and Mom would have a late dinner cooking while we were away. One of our favorite dishes was boneless Barbecue Country Ribs. Mom made her own barbecue sauce which is still my favorite to this day, not too spicy, just right. The flavor is enhanced by the slow cooking and the meat falls apart. We lived in Wisconsin so most of the year we cooked inside, you could use this on any type of meat you wish to barbecue or grill in the summer.
After dinner the folks would settle in to watch the Packer game or baseball depending on the season. They were avid sports fans. My sister and I would head outside to play sports with the neighbor kids. Ashland was a wonderful place to grow up with great memories.
For dessert I would suggest pineapple bars or ice cream sundae dessert.
