Served over rice and topped with some scallions!

The Cure for Swine Flu! Skrimp Bok Choy!

If you're looking for a refreshing and healthylike soup to slurp on a rainy day, this is it. We chopped up shitakes, ginger into match sticks, bok choy into match sticks, green onion and cooked it with garlic and red pepper in a broth along with some mid-sized skrimps and vermicelli. Delicious! 4 Noms

BBQ the Final Round! Tacos!

That boston butt we made provided a week of nothing but non-stop pork goodness, so for the last night of this feast, we made pork tacos with jalapeno cole slaw. Collard greens on the side with boiled n' roasted taters tossed with cajun seasoning. Homemade bbq sauce on the tacos. Great way to finish it off.

Pork n' Chee

We dry rubbed a pork tenderloin and cooked it over the coals. I really like the dry rubs for the flavor and "crust" it forms on the outside of the meat while keeping the good juices inside. We made Shells and cheese with fontina and vermont white cheddar and added some green chilies for spice. Tossed broccoli with garlic butter for some greens.

BBQ Round 2!

Open faced bbq sando using the pulled pork from yesterday and a toasted piece of whole grain. I made a bbq sauce using shallots, garlic, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, worcester, ketchup and some spices that went great with the pork. Mac n' Chee provided by Kraft (it's delicious and you know it) and sauteed a bunch of spinach in garlic and olive oil. 4.3 Noms!

Classic Burgertown!

A couple weeks ago we made a classic jalapeno burger meal using ground chuck/sirloin, special seasonings, roasted mashers, garlic tossed green beans and grilled corn. Hot sauce on it all!

Ultimate Pulled Pork BBQ! 4.99 Noms!

Some things can not be shared. Like this new pulled pork recipe. No lie, this turned out simply incredible. I don't think we've ever had a more tender, more juicy, more flavorful sando of pulled pork ever. Served with a vidalia onion bbq sauce on a toasted ciabatta roll. Green beans from the Slatten garden and mac n' chee on the side. Good LAWD!
