A Sweater Dress and Slow Cooker Short Ribs

Happy Tuesday!

So I’ve decided to make an effort to wear a skirt or dress at least once during the week to mix things up a bit. With my casual lifestyle and working from home, it is easy to fall into a jeans and boots rut. Especially when it is cold out! Yesterday I went to run a bunch of errands so decided it was a good a day as any to pull out a dress. A sweater dress to be exact.

I love the comfort and warmth of a sweater dress, and have been really liking wearing them with my ankle booties lately. I added black tights for warmth and a red scarf for a pop of color. Just as comfortable as jeans!

For dinner I made short ribs in my Crockpot. Why have I never made short ribs before? So easy and delicious. This recipe will blow your mind. It is actually calls for spare ribs but I have no doubt it would be just as delicious on any kind of ribs or roast.

I went ahead and actually seared my meat before putting it in the Crockpot, but I think you could get away without. Only changes I made were to use red wine instead of beef broth (because not surprisingly I had an open bottle of wine but no beef broth) and to just use a sprinkle of dried thyme instead of fresh thyme sprigs. Make it, you won’t regret it. Next time I will serve over mashed cauliflower to soak up all the yummy juices : )
