I found a GREAT package of ribs at Super One...have I mentioned how great Super One's meet typically is?!
Made bbq sauce with tomato sauce, garlic powder, worcestershire, salt, pepper, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, paprika, and hot pepper jelly.

We had canned corn with it.  Ewwww!  But the girls love it.  And we had mac n cheese.  Now, my friends, that's high class there at the Stute household.  Need I say we had a very yellow meal?!

The ribs were good though, and a little spicy.  Not too spicy.  Good spicy.

Garden Burgers, (Thank you Food Network Magazine!)

It's summer!  You know what that means???  Time for more burgers!  Plus we got a new grill so we had to try it out.
We made small burgers and grilled them.
Put them on a small kaiser roll with alfalfa sprouts, sliced avacado, tomato, spring greens, and homemade green goddess dressing.

MMMMM........that's all I can say.  It was delicious, it was fresh, and it tasted like summer!
We ate it with a fresh salad and corn on the cob.

Hello, Summer!

pulled pork tacos, yummmmm!

Hello faithful readers of mine!  Okay, so I found this most fabulous recipe on Allrecipes.com.
Went to Oles (our small town grocery store) and found this massive pork roast on sale for $5.99!  So, put it in a dutch oven.  Meanwhile, mix a can of diced tomatoes with chiles, chili powder, garlic, chopped onion, lime juice, salt, and pepper.  Pour that over the top.  Then put it in the oven at 350 for 4 hours.  I did mine a little longer since it was so big.  Then I took it out, shredded it, (after finding the pieces of grisel cuz I HATE biting into grisel!) and then add fresh chopped cilantro, a full bunch.

To assemble, take a warm corn tortilla, add the pork mixture, sliced fresh avacado, and some sour cream.  We added some shredded cheddar for good measure.


The next night we ate the pork mixture on delicious fresh chewy hard rolls and it almost just as divine!  What can I say, I love corn tortillas...

chili dog hotdish

Sounds icky.  It was wierd.  Mike loved it though!  I had nothing for supper except turkey polishes with cheese.  No buns, no bread.  No potatoes.
So...I found a pack of cornbread mix.  Mix it up and put half of it in a baking dish.  Meanwhile, create chili (I had nothing so I made it out of tomato soup) and add hamburger (I had none, but I had leftover taco meat)  Then I added chili powder, onions, cumin, and the polishes cut up.  Put that on the cornbread mix, more cornbread mix, and cheese.  Then bake.

A man's dish.
Meaty.  salty.  cheesy.  and oniony.
