Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,
Very busy week this week in the General Assembly. On Tuesday, the Extreme Crimes Prevention Act is up for a full floor vote. On Wednesday, the legalization of marijuana bill is up in the Revenue and Finance committee, of which I am a member.
-On Tuesday is a legislative lunch with the good people from WHYY.
-On Wednesday are two meetings/receptions with different groups in the insurance field.
-Thursday is another meeting of the Joint Legislative Oversite and Sunset Committee. We are still reviewing the State Board of Education. Doing away with them altogether is still a topic of discussion.
-On Saturday is a ribbon cutting of the DE Turf facility.
-Happy Mothers’ Day to all the mommies out there.

Hello, Smoker. My name is Jeff. We last met a few months ago. And these are the first ribs of the season.
-1 12 oz. can of chipotle peppers in adobo
-3 tbsp honey
-juice of 1 lime
-salt and pepper to taste
-1 tbsp smoked paprika, ground cumin, and ground coriander
-1 rack of ribs with the membrane removed
-1 oz. Creme de Casis
-1 cup ketchup
-1 tbsp dark brown sugar
Combine all of the ingredients in a small pot and bring to a light boil. Let cool and set aside in thirds. Marinate the ribs overnight in 1/3 of the sauce. Bring the grill, smoker, or oven up to 225 degrees. Cook the ribs, bone side down, for 3 hours. Place the ribs on a large piece of foil, pour 1/3 of the sauce over them, and cook another 2 hours. Uncover. Cook another hour. Remove from the grill and pour the rest of the sauce on them. Enjoy.
