I couldn't resist! The deals are so amazing this week I had to show you guys how to throw a low budget party!
I know a lot of you are having guests over for Memorial Day. Family coming in to town, friends coming over. Why not surprise them with how inexpensively you can throw a party? Plus, with little effort involved!
I love having people over. My only complaint is that I feel I spend more time prepping and in the kitchen than I do enjoying my own party. Well, I think this time I have taken care of that. This party menu has little or no prep! I love it! The main dish is in the crockpot! The sides, are mostly ready to go! I have even included the drinks!
This meal is easily expandable too, if you are expecting more people! You may even want to keep this meal under your sleeve for the Fourth of July since it is coming up quickly!
Here is the Main Dish!
Crockpot BBQ Country Style Ribs
- 2 to 3 pounds pork country-style ribs
- 1 cup ketchup
- 8 ounces cola -- Coke, Dr. Pepper, etc.
Combine ketchup and cola. Whisk together well.
Place country-style pork ribs in slow cooker.
Pour cola mixture over ribs.
Cover and cook 2 hours on HIGH then cook for 3 to 4 hours on LOW. Baste occasionally if desired.
Serves 6 to 8.
On the sides menu it is all quick and easy
- Deli Potato Salad
- Corn on the cob (If you are having lots of guests, cut the ears of corn in half. They go further 🙂 )
- Bushes baked beans ( I like the new Steakhouse Grillin Beans! )
