Sunday 6/5 What's Cooking?

What's cooking everybody?

I'm starting a Confetti Soup using the thyme infused liquid from boiling potatoes and onions. I used beef bullion for salt. The thyme and beef broth is really rich tasting.

I added some water to cover 5 country style ribs (still frozen) and added a bunch of the Klondike Rose potatoes cut in half.

When the potatoes are done, I'll remove them and freeze half. The same with the CS ribs.

Not sure here. We're going to a huge 50th anniversary bash for Glenn's best friends, which is supposed to be a food-filled event. It's from 2 to 5 p.m., so if we eat enough there we probably won't need much more than a light salad at home...or not.

Chicken on the grill. Maybe Jerk, or brined, or.....not sure yet..there is this recipe that I discovered on Youtube which was done by the BBQ Pit Boys. You marinate the chicken in equal parts apple cidre vinegar, veg oil and an egg. It really turns out good. I have used it a few times.

I just tried out that meat slicer I bought a couple months ago on the heel of a Smith's ham. I sliced some steaks for the freezer and shaved some thin ham for sandwiches. Two mounds of that shaved ham went onto a couple kaiser rolls with two slices of American cheese on each. Then I wrapped them in foil and put them into the toaster oven until the ham was warmed through, the cheese melted and the rolls started getting crusty. That's what's been cookin' so far.
I pulled a couple salmon patties out of the freezer, but not sure if they will be tonight's dinner or not.

I'm going to try a small smoking experiment on my Weber kettle. I've rubbed some thick cut pork sirloins and will try smoking them with hickory chips later this afternoon.

I think the hard part will be attaining the right temp and maintaining it for the duration.

We'll have some mac salad and a tossed salad to go along with it.

Thanks, I hope it turns out better than the key lime pie I screwed up yesterday.

Its dance recital day today. That means I need to leave something in the oven while we are there. I'm planning a standing rib roast and oven roasted potatoes. I'll whip up a salad when we get home and toss some veggies in the microwave at the last minute. No clue on dessert. Likely ice cream unless I get inspired to bake soon.
