Grilling Chicken…………….

* As with any protein, chicken should be liberally seasoned with either salt and pepper or your favorite barbecue dry rub. Better yet, soak the chicken overnight in a saltwater brine to not only add flavor but also ensure the chicken stays moist.

* Keep a pan of water next to the coals. This helps keep the chicken moist as it cooks.

* When grilling, it’s best to go with a boneless, skin-on chicken breast. You can go for bone-in as well. Bone-in will add more flavor, but take longer to cook. But regardless of what you choose, make sure the skin is on it. This will get crispy and prevent the meat from sticking to the grill.

* From several grilling sources, thank you!

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a Couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Humid, rain showers late, and a high of 88 degrees outside. Plus we have a high Pollen count out so that tells me its a good day to stay in as much as possible. Idid have to go to local Kroger for a few items. Then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs for Dinner so I got those on early today. Then it house cleaning today. Dusted and Vacuumed. Then later repotted a couple of Herb Plants I got the other day. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite).

 


Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB ’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 


For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.


Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

May 26-28, 2018 40th Annual Taste of Cincinnati USA – Cincinnati, Ohio

May 24, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in Festivals | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Memorial Day weekend in downtown Cincinnati. Started in 1979, it is now the nation’s longest running culinary arts festival, featuring more than 40 fine restaurants serving up delicious and delectable menu items. Menu items are previewed and judged for prestigious Best of Taste Awards. This is also a music festival, with continuous live entertainment featuring local and national recording stars performing on multiple stages throughout the event. Attendance: 500,000.
http://www.tasteofcincinnati.com/

Taste of Cincinnati started as a one-day fest in Piatt Park, then known as Garfield Park, with approximately 5,000 attending the first event. The event expanded to two days in 1981, and in 1988 expanded to three days and moved to Central Parkway. Taste of Cincinnati was the brainchild of Karen Maier, vice president of marketing for Frisch’s Restaurants Inc. Maier cooked up the idea after reading about Taste of the Big Apple in the Nation’s Restaurant News, an industry trade publication.

In 2007, the event was moved to Fifth Street to spotlight the $42-million renovation of Fountain Square and its underground parking garage, and to bring the event closer to Downtown’s cluster of hotels, such as The Cincinnatian Hotel, the Garfield Suites Hotel, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati, The Terrace Hotel and the Westin Hotel Cincinnati.

Approximately 550,000 now attend the annual food extravaganza, making Taste one of the nation’s largest street festivals. Taste of Cincinnati features more than 50 restaurants and food trucks serving up delicious and delectable menu items. In the weeks leading up to Taste each year, menu items are previewed and judged for prestigious Best of Taste Awards.

Taste of Cincinnati is also a music festival, with continuous live entertainment featuring local and national recording stars performing on multiple stages throughout the event.

Barbecue Chicken and Chard Quesadillas
Dark leafy greens give this healthy chicken quesadilla recipe a vitamin K boost. We also boosted the flavor in regular barbecue sauce. Serve with guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce and/or salsa, if desired…………..

Filet Mignon with Blueberry-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
Blueberries, loaded with antioxidants, have a balance of sweet and sour, which makes them an excellent base for a rich, tangy barbecue sauce. Fresh thyme rubbed on the steak dovetails wonderfully with the blueberries. Serve with fresh tomato wedges…………..

Pork Chops with Peach Barbecue Sauce
The tangy peach barbecue sauce that glazes these pork chops is incredible on grilled chicken or salmon as well. Bone-in pork chops (as opposed to boneless) are less likely to dry out. Just make sure to trim away as much fat as possible for healthier results………………….
