Old Greenwood BBQ at the Gold Rush Saloon

 Although slightly charred more than I would have liked, my family of four enjoyed the ribs from Greenwood. My older son and I shared the rib pack (below) which came with three pint sides and four corn muffins (though they only gave us three) for $45. The brisket was a lean cut and a bit salty. The My younger son got the cheeseburger and found fault with the fact that the cheese wasn't melted. 

But, the ribs were delicious and they will have me coming back. Greenwood BBQ has outdoor seating and is open as of this writing.

Red bean buns from

My wife recently made red bean buns using the recipe found at . It was unusual in that this recipe did not call for an egg in the dough, but it still came out well! The dough in the photos below was made from scratch. We got the red bean paste from 99Ranch. 

We let the dough rise first before filling the dough with red bean. To do this, Jenny left the ball of dough outside in a bowl in the summer heat with a towel on top. 

Jenny let the dough rise a second time after making the buns (below) before putting them in the toaster oven at 400F.

Jenny finished with some egg wash to give the buns some color and a thin, crisp shell.
