Vegan Ribs, Cuban Black Beans, and Jerk Asparagus

A year ago today, my husband and I were on the warm beaches of the Dominican Republic. We watched the Superbowl on a giant screen on the beach, drinking Brugal Rum.

Mmmmm…..I miss this.
The mostly vegetarian husband had a brilliant idea; make a Caribbean inspired dinner for the Superbowl! Genius. He even found Brugal rum! So here is what is on tap (besides the rum):
Dragonfly’s Vegan Ribs (
Cuban Black Beans and Rice (
Jerk Asparagus (This recipe is from the vegan cookbook Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.)
Since I have not made any of these items just yet, I will share them tomorrow. In the meantime, the husband and I are enjoying looking at the photos from our trip and reminiscing. Here is a photo of an abandoned home. It was beat up pretty badly in the last hurricane. The husband and I said that we will be back someday to restore it and retire there.

We can dream right? We were on vacation and probably enjoyed too much rum? Maybe our brains were fried from all of the vitamin D? Who cares!? It was a great trip.
Oh and GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
