Since it was a work day for me dinner had to be something simple. The one tradition we have is Moe’s Birthday “dessert” is always something with strawberries and since the easiest “Strawberry” dessert to make is strawberry shortcake that was what I went with.
The shortcakes went into the oven minutes after I walked into the house. While the shortcakes baked, I sliced the strawberries, sprinkled with sugar and drizzled over them a little Triple Sec and set them aside. Next I seasoned a rack of baby back ribs and got them on to the grill.
The ribs were done in just under an hour and the only side we had with them was fresh corn. Amazingly sweet corn for grocery store corn. It will be a few months before farm fresh corn is available around here.
I love fresh corn with butter, salt and I also have to have lots of fresh ground pepper on mine.
The shortcakes were split and topped with fresh whipped cream, the strawberries and more whipped cream. You can’t have too much whipped cream.
