    Dinner 2022

    I made pork loin ribs with cherry BBQ sauce, rice and potato salad today.

    Crab legs were on sale for the first time in a couple of years.
  3. @Shelby got my attention when she asked @KennethT about a bowl he has. When he told her where he got them I ordered one too but I broke it and they were out of stock by then but they had the same style in a smaller size so I got 4 of them. I think I like the smaller ones better. The other two are in the refrigerator with leftovers.
  4. @rotuts Most sellers ask $21-25. for them and the one I got cost about $15. They are all made by the same company, I think. They all look alike. @heidih That is a good idea in theory.
  5. This should arrive soon. Charlie loves empanadas and I don't love making them. This might make it less of a chore. Dumpling Skin Maker Molds ,Household Double Head Automatic Dumpling Maker Ravioli Press Mold Making Tool,Make Dumplings Empanadas Quickly (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

    Charlie is about to have his birthday party. There will be pork shoulder, brisket, four bean salad from Costco, pasta salad that Charlie made, a Summer Fruit salad, coleslawpotato salad. I think that's everything.

    Charlie asked for a BBQ party for his birthday. The party will be tomorrow. I have been making dishes for it for the last couple days. I will post pictures tomorrow but today I did a brisket. The target temperature to pull it was 202. It got to 199 and stalled there for two hours. Then it took only twenty minutes more to finish. I have heard of it taking longer but I hope this will be the longest I will ever have.

    @liuzhouI'm not Asian, I can't determine what makes it Asian or not Asian. It was in the name of the title of the recipe. Perhaps it is because it has a few Asian ingredients in it, like 5 spice powder, hoisin and soy sauces and ginger. In competition BBQ judging, rules say that there should be some "tug" in the bite. Meat that falls off the bone is considered over cooked. That is a competition rule. Competition participants seldom cook for friends and family the same way for them as they cook for judges. Competition BBQ is judged by a single bite (and there are points given for things other than taste. They can even be disqualified for things that have nothing to do with taste such as a garnish that isn't green. it is done in an attempt to make the playing ground as even as possible but that really isn't possible. It is one reason I have no interest in ever competing against anyone else in a contest.

    I get recipes sent by Thermoworks fairly often. The ones I try are alway good. This one for Asian Sticky Ribs was very different from the way I normally do ribs even it included smoking them for part of the cooking and then braising in the oven. They were totally falling off the bone. Normally that would not be a good thing but these were good. We had a couple of people eating with us and every one liked them.

    The only thing of note I made today is a cake. I don't make cake often enough to know that something that sounds off really is off and I didn't know that one can of cherries will not come close to being 2 1/2 cups, and that the frosting would need to be whipped. I figured it out eventually though.

    Thanks. I live a mile from a large grocery store so picking up stuff at next no notice is barely a problem.

    Charlie gave me a scare. He asked for a salad for lunch. I knew he was OK later when he asked for meatballs and spaghetti for supper. It was too hot to turn on the oven so I used the grill instead.

    Charlie asked for Banh Mi sandwiches so that is what we had. I made them with pork chops pounded flat.

    Tonight we had Italian Pork Chops, pan fried mushrooms and some new potatoes. Charlie is redecorating the living room and these are two paintings he created for the wall. PS The corkscrews thing is something I made around 20 years ago.
