TGIFriday 6/10 What's Cooking?

I've got some country style ribs that I boiled until falling off the bone, so I'm thinking maybe some BBQ sauce caramelized on them might be good, along with some small red potatoes cooked in the same broth.

What are you cooking (or not) this Friday?

I might cut up the strip steak loin I bought last week. If so, I will grill a steak.

Since I ate lunch around 9:00 this morning (bacon, egg, tomato sandwich on toast), I'll probably go with leftover hummus and pita for my mid-afternoon snack and then maybe some tomatoes with fresh basil and moz. cheese for my before bed snack...

Tomorrow, I get to eat at normal times so I'll be in the kitchen cooking tomorrow and baking on Sunday...

We are possibly going out to dinner with our son and his girlfriend. The yungun comes home from Philly today and may come too. Still in the planning stage. If it falls through, I have some brats that can be cooked up rather quickly.

Sesame chicken with steamed rice and Asian style vegetables, and I've got this 2010 Crios de Susana Balbo Rosé of Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina I've been dying to try

Moussaka this evening! Dug up a nice looking recipe. Never sure about the nutmeg in the white sauce though... might leave that out.

A pinch of nutmeg in Bechamél is standard. Not so much that you taste nutmeg over everything else, just as a background flavor. There is also no harm in leaving it out.

Tonight will be my first attempt at beer can chicken. What ideas do you guys have for seasonings for this? Some recipes say just basic salt pepper, etc. And other recipes say to use a rub. What do you think? Thanks.

Our favorite rub for chicken is Kansas City Rub.
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
Of course, you can adjust this based on your preference or availability of ingredients...

You will probably have some left over that will keep forever if stored in a dry, tightly sealed container
