Veggie Burgers 07/09/2010
 
Just to be nice to all the vegetarians who decided to come to our BBQ, I decided to make lentil veggie burgers. I recently went to a local restaurant that cooks with all local and organic produce…They make the best veggie burger I’ve ever had and I’m pretty sure there were no lentils or beans. It just tasted so fresh and veggie-licious! So the ultimate goal is to find a recipe like that but for now I’ll stick with this one, which did turn out pretty tasty. Vegetarian and Carnivore approved!

BBQ Ribs, baby! 07/08/2010

Not to be confused with baby back ribs…These. were. awesome. The ribs I got from Price Chopper were grass fed and delicious but not really what I was expecting. They were really long (not the side ways length slabs you normally cook ribs as) and had the side bones in them? Very strange. But! nonetheless they were deeelicious. Feel free to make your own BBQ sauce…with tons of people coming and lots to prepare, I wasn’t quite up to the challenge (Dinner Impossible anyone?)

Just a simple Tuesday night dinner...good ol' summery comfort food. BBQ Pork Chops and *cough* store bought *cough* mac and cheese!

Sprinkle your boneless loin chops with some cayenne pepper (careful on this one unless you love yourself some spice), paprika, black pepper (freshly ground of course), and some granulated onion.

Throw in a skillet with some olive oil on medium to medium high heat and brown on both sides (3 - 4 minutes per side).

Cover for a few minutes to get the insides fully cooked.

Serve with your favorite mac and cheese, be it non lazy homemade stuff or lazy store bought stuff. It all tastes awesome with some BBQ sauce!

I'm actually thinking about trying to make a BBQ mac and cheese...it'd be pretty amazing. I know S'Mac has already made a BBQ chicken wing one with blue cheese, but you don't even need the chicken and cheese!
