Croatia v Italy

It's the big one tonight and I'm on a promise if Croatia win (M promised the second question on the Jeremy Kyle lie detector if they draw)

I brined up a turkey breast, pork fillet and a piece of bp.It went in the smoker a few hrs ago.

Today I have to visit my Endocrinologist for a check-up on my Diabetes. So that means I'll be exhausted by the time that I get back home tonight so there will be no cooking for me. We found this local place that is run out of a Chevron gas station called Uncle Frank's BBQ and they have brisket (that's smoked for 30 hours) Chicken breast, Sausages, Pulled Pork, Ribs etc. We'll be stopping by there today on the way home to get food for our family & my parents! Yummy, I can't wait!

Looking for inspiration still...pork or chicken available. I don't feel like doing anything with ground beef.

Going to tackle a tuna loin. Thinking of encrusting in sesame seeds and searing, then serving on a hearty salad with an Asian style vinaigrette.

I don't know what kind of pork you have, but a few weeks ago I tried a Mexican coffee rub on a pork tenderloin, seared and finished it in the oven. We sliced it and made the most awesome tacos! I can post the rub if you want it!

I have thin little bone in chops. I'd need to do something to moisten them. I'd LOVE the recipe for the rub though. I buy lots of tenderloin when its on sale and will definitely use it.

Thanks, Yeah I think Uncle Frank's can help with just about any kind of illness or disease Plus they've got this delicious strawberry cobbler - that is amazing but FORCES me to take lots and lots of EXTRA insulin.
