"Eating Good in the Neighborhood"....
Nope - that has been used.
"Take Out Fake Out!"
KFC Fake Out Take Out & Baby Back Ribs!
What ever you call it - this was a good week!
I went digging in both the freezer and my recipe box and came up with some gems.
I don't know about you but I consider Baby Back ribs an expensive treat. At our most popular local BBQ restaurant a full rack of ribs is about $27.00 and a half rack is $24.00 Oh and
if you think you can share that rack of ribs they will charge you an additional $6. a plate. Dinner for 2 can easily come to over $60.
I pulled from my freezer a full rack of baby backs - cost $10.31
I cooked the whole rack but NB Papa and I shared a half rack and I saved the other half to glaze the finish another night or when Sarah my rib loving grand daughter comes over.
For about $5. worth of meat plus the cost of the ingredients for the dry rub etc... which is minimal, we enjoyed a fabulous BBQ dinner.
Steakhouse Ribs - New York Style
The dry rub for these ribs is spot on. LOVE it!
I coated the ribs with Deli Mustard as I was out of Dijon - used the dry rub as directed and wrapped in foil, as directed. Onto the grill and after 40 minutes I knew these needed a lower
heat for a longer time. I turned the grill down to low and set the rib pack aside- indirect heat and let it cook. 1 1/2 hours and I opened them up to perfectly cooked ribs. Set aside to cool in the foil package until we were ready for dinner. I cut them into
serving size pieces and glazed them with different sauces. The favorite - hands down was the Black Pepper Sauce by Bansankan.
FrackFamily5 featured this product in her blog and it is a keeper!
I served these ribs with left overs from last nights feast including KFC Knockoff Coleslaw.
KFC Knock-Off Coleslaw
I don't always have buttermilk on hand but when I do I make this coleslaw. Cabbage, carrot and a little onion are all cheap and with this dressing make a wonderful slaw. By the way - this
is one of the few recipes that I actually measure the ingredients for the dressing.
I am so proud of myself!
I fried chicken without burning it or the stove or burning down the house.
The fire department didn't have to be called and it was a huge success!
A little more chicken is out of the freezer & I didn't add any thing to the freezer!
Heather's Fried Chicken.
To be honest I kind of goofed on this recipe - but it was a good mistake.
I added 1 Tablespoon of the chicken seasoning to the buttermilk instead of a teaspoon and I added 1 teaspoon of the chicken seasoning to the flour.
No fried chicken dinner would be complete without mashed potatoes and gravy. Having had great success with these recipes last week I didn't bother looking for another gravy recipe that
needed a picture. I wanted a TNT good gravy and I was not disappointed.
Rosy Refrigerator Rolls.
This recipe has been hanging around in my recipe box for a long time. It is a keeper!
Soft delicious pillows of goodness.
They aren't 'rosy' colored but more orange - it doesn't matter, they are wonderful.
There you have it - my weekend dinners - cooking from the freezer & pantry. Now I need to start looking for some healthier recipes - I could get used to eating like this.
