Cucumbers……….

When buying – Look for firm cucumbers, without blemishes or soft spots, which can indicate they have started to rot. They should be dark green without any yellow spots, which develop as the cucumber is getting overly ripe. At that point, it will often produce off-flavors and odors.

To Store them – Cucumbers can last about 2 weeks at maximum quality before they start to soften. Due to their high water content, the quicker you use a fresh cucumber, the better. Chilling cucumbers in the fridge can make them last, but only if you do so carefully.

Storing Mushrooms………

You can use the original packaging from the store, because those cases are generally designed to allow for some air flow. You can also place mushrooms in a paper bag; just be sure to leave the top open. And that’s it! Pop the mushrooms in your fridge, unwashed, and be sure to use those mushrooms quickly.

When using Peppers……

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.

Blackberry Muffins
These blackberry muffins are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast. The batter is lightly flavored with cloves, while almonds on top give them a savory, nutty crunch. Fresh blackberries add a burst of sweetness in every bite……….

Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken Nuggets with Blackberry Mustard
Tossing chicken tenders with cornmeal gives these chicken nuggets great crunch without deep-frying. Blackberries (or raspberries, if you prefer) combined with whole-grain mustard make for a sweet-and-savory dipping sauce. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and carrots………

Blackberry Cobbler
Flaky, buttery biscuits dolloped on sweet, syrupy berries–fruit cobblers may be the best summer dessert ever. We love fresh blackberries in cobbler, but fresh blueberries or even frozen blackberries make a great substitute. You don’t even have to thaw the berries first; mix them up while they’re still frozen……..

Buying Blackberries……….

Choose deeply colored, glossy berries that show no signs of having been crushed or bruised. As with all berries, check for mold before buying. Look for bright, uniform color; pass on darkened, dull berries.

It is best to store your blueberries in the fridge and wash just prior to eating. Berries are delicate and very perishable. If you wash them first and plan to store them for a long period of time in the refrigerator they can start to break down faster. Blueberries should last a week and a half or more!

Storing Strawberries………..

Remove the berries from their original container, and store them whole and unwashed in a partially-closed container lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture, preferably in a single layer so they don’t get crushed. They should last up to five to seven days.

Storing Tomatoes………

Ripe tomatoes should be kept at on your counter, uncovered, if you are going to enjoy the tomato in the next day or two. But any longer than that – the recommendation is to refrigerate. A so-so tomato is much better than a rotten, moldy tomato. Refrigeration will slow down the decay.

Gas vs. Charcoal…….

The age-old debate over which grilling method is “better” involves multiple variables, from flavor to cost to convenience. While no studies prove that either is healthier, gas does burn cleaner. Charcoal grills emit more carbon monoxide, particulate matter and soot into the atmosphere, contributing to increased pollution and higher concentrations of ground-level ozone. From a taste perspective, on the other hand, many people prefer the smokier, richer taste of food cooked on a charcoal grill. Either way, Fire That Grill Up!

Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced Potatoes and Baked Beans

Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced Potatoes and Baked Beans

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 81 degrees and sunny, plus low humidity and no rain! After my Tea I went to Walmart and took my car and had it washed. Also stopped by the ATM and filled the car up with gas. Back home, I got some yard work done and did some packing and clean up the Spare Room. I’ll be glad to get this new flooring in and get back to normal! For Dinner tonight I heated up the leftover Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced Potatoes and Baked Beans. Leftovers are just as good as anything, especially this Chicken. I left the original post from last night for Ingredients and Directions. Enjoy and Take Care All!

So I had picked up a package of Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts at Meijer and had it in the freezer, laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. For the BBQ Sauce I’m using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce. I’m seasoning it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the grill up first. Next I sprayed the Chicken with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chicken Breast, then seasoned them with the Salt and Pepper and waited for the Grill to heat.

With the Grill ready I started. Added the Chicken and shut the lid on the grill. I let the chicken cook for 7 minutes, then used the tongs to flip the breasts over. Grilled for another 7 minutes longer. With about 1 minute of cooking time left I basted the Chicken with the Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce and finished cooking. Checked the temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer reads it read just a tad over 165°. The Chicken came out fantastic! Moist and flavorful. Love this Katie’s Best Chicken!

 

As the Chicken was cooking I prepared the side dishes. For one side to go with the Chicken I prepared a can of Meijer Sliced Potatoes. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through and done!

 

Then for another side I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. And Dinner is served! The Chicken was spot on and the Potatoes and Beans work perfect with the BBQ Chicken. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
