8/15/2019 - Julia Child's Birthday Dinner

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Child

Sadly, I'll never be able to come anywhere near her cooking standards. Our dinner tonight of grilled cheeseburgers and oven fries proves that.

I made stewed tomatoes for lunch (leftovers for tomorrow).

Put yogurt on last night to incubate (8 hours). Then strained for 8 hours. I made up 12 (1 cup) mason jars:
Unsweetened fruit on bottom:
4 cherry pie filling
4 sugar free strawberry preserves
2 blueberry preserves
2 sweetened with honey, coconut extract added and stirred. Then topped with flaked coconut and semi-sweet chocolate chips

Dinner was Baby back ribs rubbed with my homemade rib rub, smoked in the stove top smoker (hickory and mesquite smoke chip/dust) then basted with a combo of Heinz Kansas City Sweet & Smoky sauce, Original Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and Pomegranate Molasses under the broiler to create bark. Sides were homemade coleslaw and Bush’s Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans with the leftover rib basting sauce added.

I'm on my own again tonight, since DH is at a role playing game. I had sautéed rainbow chard with a fried egg and a slice of reheated pizza. I'll probably snack some more later.

I'm going to be enjoying grilling for the first time in two weeks. I've sure missed it. Marinated chicken wings, and a basket of marinated veggies will be on the menu along with leftover Spanish rice.

So you like the chard then? Cool

We had sloppy Joes on my homemade burger buns from the freezer; we add a lot of chopped onions and bell peppers to ours. Pickles on the side.

I decided to be nice to Himself and make chili. In an attempt to ward off a case of indigestion, I had a big bowl of salad with buttermilk dressing and a small bowl of chili. Himself is busy stuffing his face with chili.
