Every night this week the BGE has been humming. Most everything has been of the simple nature.
Here is what has been cooked:
Monday – Chicken Fajitas marinated in a lime fajita mixture that I was try on request. It was good but not great. I used whole-wheat tortilla shells. The kids always eat this one well.[p]Tuesday – Chicken Fajitas again. However, I just sprinkled the Chicken with Fresh Lime juice and Kosher Salt. I also made some Black Beans to add to the mix. I used white flour tortilla shells. Different wrappers, different meal.[p]Wendsday – Char Crusted Hamburgers. I used some fresh ground chuck. I mixed a little Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Char Crust and then coated the outsides. I grilled the burgers like steaks three, three and dwell for five minutes. At the edges of the grill I also cooked three hot dogs for the kids.[p]Thursday – Anduolli Sauasage and left over burgers. This was basically a heat and eat meal. I served them with Stir-fried Fresh Green Beans and Garlic Fried Potatoes. The potatoes are simple. I diced up about seven Yukon Gold Potatoes and then fried them enough oil in a cast iron skillet to cover a single layer. When the potatoes are golden, I removed them to a bowl and sprinkled them with Kosher Salt and raw sliced garlic. I used a whole head of homegrown garlic. [p]Tonight - Non-egg. Beef and Black Barley Soup. However, I am going to toss in the leftover beans and Anduolli so that kind of counts.[p]Saturday – Spare Ribs, Fresh Sweet Corn and Cole Slaw. I have not yet decided how I am going to cook the ribs. I may go for NB’s Ginger Mahogany Ribs.[p]On a side note, KennyG and I had the unexpected pleasure of having lunch at Computer Conference that we both attended.[p]Next week, I am heading California to see if I can find Elder Ward and tell him that we miss him.[p]Happy Grilling,
