Those packs of taco seasoning makes a great "muddy rub" for ribs and BBQ. See ALS's post on rubs.

I marinated some country ribs a few days ago in chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and onion powder. It was the first time I've used onion powder in a marinade and I'm not sure why I did. It was a great accidental decision. The onion powder really stood out by adding a slight sweet taste to the ribs. Sometimes I slow cook ribs. Sometimes I hot cook them to get a crust on the ribs but leave the center very moist by sealing the moisture in with the crust. I think I cooked them at 450 degrees F on a hot grill. They were delicious.


My jalapeno plants are pumping out some really large jalapenos. I threw five or six on the grill with the ribs and since my wife doesn't eat them; I got to eat all of them. They were almost as good as the ribs.

Don, next time, make a slit in your jalapeno and push in some of that same seasoning mix made moist you used on the meat into the pepper. Then grill. Rob loved them that way. Easiest for me to do with a small spoon.

I'm already eyeballing some large ancho poblanos in my garden for grilling. I was thinking about stuffing them with seasonings or seasoned ground beef. I'm not sure how well they will grill because the poblanos are thin walled and i'm concerned they will burn up before the stuffing is cooked.

On a hot grill they will burn up before the stuffing is cooked.
Best slow smoke or something.

Still too much salt for me.

If just seasonings, may be fine over not the hottest spot on the grill. If using meat, pre cook it most of the way and grill.



You'll not know until you try it.

I cooked crawfish etoufee and eggplant patties last night. I love the patties with etoufee gravy on them, it pairs well with any seafood.

Eggplant patties sound good!

I ran out of bread and had to break my 'keep it simple breakfast' routine, which is boring but quick. Starting with grated potato in the pan with some fine chopped onion, salt and pepper. Flip when it starts to brown, then pour on the beaten eggs, chopped leek and frozen tomato. Flip that and grate a mound of white cheddar on top while it cooks, then fold over to serve.

It's actually a better meal than the usual breakfast, for containing some home grown veggies!

Sounds and looks good, Bower, and enough to carry your body's needs for awhile.

Rajun, your food looks good!

Bower that's my kind of breakfast, it looks good!


I used some of the Pinchos and grilled veggies to add to a pack of PrimaTaste Laska la mian with coconut milk topped it with chopped onions and spinach and it came out awesome. Perfect balance of sweet and spicy!

Have you ever had the mind set of having no idea of what you want to eat? Not for lack of money, but you just don't care. It goes beyond food blahs. I'm there.

All the time, that is what fried catfish and chili dogs are for.

Hotdogs are easy to prepare. Open package - eat. I have got to get out of this mindset.

Partly the heat, but I understand the food blahs. Lately it is salad or a smoothie fall back for me.
