Random Ingredient Night Success

Tonight was random ingredient night in the kitchen. I didn’t have it in me to venture to the grocery store AGAIN so I was going to have to concoct dinner from whatever was edible in the kitchen.

Ingredients on hand included:

2 boneless pork ribs
1/4 of an onion
some garlic
1/2 a can of crushed pineapple leftover from make your own pizza night
2 rutabagas (I have no idea how they got into the refrigerator)
white rice mixed with quinoa
and, praise Jesus, a fresh head of lettuce.

Step #1: throw it all into an oven save baking dish with a cover. Season with salt, pepper, and fresh or dried mint. Put it into a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Then, remove the cover, increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees and cook for another 15-20 minutes until things are nicely browned.
Step #2: Put in on a plate and pray the kids will eat it. Mine loved it and I consider them completely average eaters.
