(Jillie had started a topic like this,
Thought I'd put it back up again!!)

I made home made grilled cheese sam~iches,
*half Colby and half X~tra sharp cheese and some fine black pepper*
And home made Tomato/Beef Rice soup...
*water, beef boullion cubes, and a can of hunts tomato sauce, rice and some fine black pepper to taste.
YUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
~EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
The wee~one's are fickle, the one only eats
the tom. soup, the other only eats the sandwich,
I like the two together.
Go figure!!!

Just pour Italian Dressing over the meat and let it sit for a few hours. It's really good on beef and chicken. I didn't make the salad,I stir-fried some carrots,broccoli,zuchini,corn and lima beans in a couple of tablespoons of Italian Dressing...YUMMY!! I also didn't make the twice baked potatoes,I made homemade scalloped potatos instead.

Gonna make Chicken and Dumplings for dinner tonight.

by weezie13 on October 26, 2004 05:20 PM
We do the Italian dressing for the chicken alot..
Wishbone Robusto Italian... very tasty..

And hubby likes to do the Chivetta's marinade and the dip it in Robusto afterwards, just for a change of pace...

It works real good on beef...the vinegar tenderizes just about any tough cut of meat. My daughter marinates pot roast in it and uses the leftover marinade in the gravy...melt in your mouth good!

I use marinades alot to give my meat a kick. Last week I used a steak marinade for chicken. Cooked it on the top rack of the grill and put a baking pan full of carrots,potatos and onions on the bottom rack. I added all of the marinade from the chicken to the pan added enough water to cover and slow-cooked it for 2 hours. All of the chicken juices fell into the pan with the veggies. My God,was it GOOD! The kids even sopped up all the juice in the pan!

When you guys grill stuff, do you use propane or charcoal?

by weezie13 on October 26, 2004 06:34 PM
Propane......
Used to use the Charcoal a long time ago..
and when I first switched over, I did miss
the taste a bit, but the time to set it up,
GET IT STARTED, let it heat up a bit to get
the charcoals red, and then finally put your item on to cook, was just toooooo long...
Then they made the propane very accessable and
alot quicker...Light it, let it warm a tad
and go...

I like to mix the marinades/sause's up a bit, I like Krafts Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce and then I also like the HOT and then I like to take the two and put them together... Oh man, now I want chicken on the grill tonight instead of the taco's, we'll see which one wins!!!

We use propane too. We like to use the wood chips made for propane grills,gives it "that charcoal" flavor.

I think I'm changing my mind. Chicken on the grill is sounding better than chicken&dumplings. Hmmmm...I've got the veggies for the drip pan too.

G-Mom [grin]
by afgreyparrot on October 26, 2004 07:09 PM
Wow...I must be the only one left that uses charcoal. I'm gonna have to check out the propane grills! I have three of them! One on the pontoon, one on the deck, one in the garage and one out front. (Duh! That's four!) [nutz] [lala]

I have NEVER even used the propane. I've probably screwed them ALL up by putting charcoal in them! I know I've destroyed this one in the front yard! Some burner thing that the flames come out of....well, I got mad at it one day and jerked it out!

Well, you all have gotten me wanting to use the gas grill.....but I don't know how! I can't find any owner's manuals to them. (Actually, I doubt if I have the directions to two of them, since they were given to me second-hand.)

Just tell me this.....is there a snowball's chance in hell that this thing is gonna EXPLODE!??
If not, I'm gonna just try to figure it out by my own bad self.

by weezie13 on October 26, 2004 07:54 PM
Cindy,
I am not a good one to reply to this, but...
with all that said, I still use them...

We had one as a kid, that the push igniter wouldn't always co~operate... and you'd turn on
the gas, and push the starter and it would lite..
Well, once it started going, you'd turn on the gas and click the starter but you'd have to do it a bunch of times, it would finally click and POOF! You'd hear it take ahold of the gas and light it...
Wellllllllllllll, one time it took a tad bit longer, and when it finally went POOFED I looked like this [Mad] *well, my arm did and the side of my hair* it went poof and the tips' of all my hair on my arm and face/head got tinged!!! [shocked]

Needless to say, I still use them, and am VERY MINDFULL when using one..
we still sort a have a similiar problem now, the starter doesn't work, so we manually put flame to it, and sometimes, the match gets blown out on the way down when I throw it in, and have to turn the gas off right away, grab another match and retry, you don't dare let the gas go even while you're just getting another match, OMG!!!
Knock on Wood, haven't re~sorched myself at all since that, but, it's been semi close on occasions!!!

I still use them though, the alternative to pan frying, just [Frown] doesn't turn me on! [Razz]

Well...I partially blew a building up one time by pouring kerosene into a coal stove that was smouldering, so I think I'd better not try the gas grill until I find someone to SHOW me how to use one.
Sounds too complicated for me. [scaredy]

[tears] I have some big ribeye steaks in there marinading right now!

Oh, well...I got plenty of charcoal, and a Bic!

Wellllll...Weezie....what did you fix...did you do the "Tacos" or the "Chicken"?

I ended up cooking the chicken on the grill..I simmered it on low and it was YUMMY!!!!!

G-Mom [grin]
by Jiffymouse on October 27, 2004 06:55 PM
ok, i have a request... if you make something that needs a recipe, you have to post the recipe with the menu... [critic]

i had home made potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.

soup:

make a white sauce by melting butter (i used 1 stick), stir flour in it (i used about 1/3c but i use the "dump & pour" method of measuring), add salt and onion powder (if you want to use real onion, saute the onions in butter and add when you add the potatoes) keep stirring, add milk or heavy cream a little at a time, stirring well until it is liquid. when liquid, add chicken broth (or ham chunks and water), stir well, put on low heat.

peel and chunk 4-5 potatoes and put in sauce, let simmer, stirring regularly. when potatoes are done, it's soup!

Hey, I'll come show you how to use the gas grill someday, [grin]

one important thing if you do try it- [shocked] MAKE SURE THE COVER IS UP BEFORE [shocked] you try to light it,

steps to lighting [teacher]
  • lift the lid
  • turn gas bottle on
  • get long matches ready
  • I like to go in from the bottom, so squat down in front of grill and look up, you should see some air holes on the bottom of the grill.
  • turn one burner on and quickly light the match and stick it in one of the holes
  • poof
  • then you can turn on the other burner, should light itself off the other side

Oh yeah, dinner tonight was a roasted chicken that I doused with last night's leftover Merlot, Smilie Fries (kid's love em) and peas!

by Jiffymouse on October 30, 2004 02:58 PM
it was pizza (home made) for supper. i'll try to describe how to make the crust after i get it right [Big Grin] (it still isn't quite right) [Big Grin]

i put the left over ham (we've been eating it for 3 days now, but it's all gone, finally) and some mushrooms on top. wasn't bad.

now, about the lighting of the gas grill... a trick i learned from my momma.... (and cindy, even you could get this one right [Big Grin] )

you take one of those long fire place matches (that is important because of how long it burns) and light it. lay it across the burner and leave it burning. turn on the gas bottle, then turn on the burner SLOWLY. the burner will catch at the first sign of the gas, so you don't get the "poof" explosive type of ignition. the poof comes from the build up of gas in the area of the spark when the spark happens. no build up, no poof.

one note... if the match goes out before the burner starts, shut the gas off and start over.

Rough one, I threw a whole chicken breast in a pot (I only like white meat) covered with water and simmered for something like two hours. Pulled it out and picked it off the bone and threw the meat back in the pot. Peeled 5 carrots,sliced em and threw in . About 1 Tbs. of thyme leaves from the garden, chopped a little parsley, too. Cut up one good-sized head of broccoli into bite size florets, threw that in , simmer,simmer,simmer........taste, added three chicken bullion cubes.Put in a few handfulls of med. egg noodles cooked for 10 minutes while the rolls cooked.

Yum, yum burnt my tongue!!

Albertsons had a "Mega" sale going on. Bacon wrapped Filet mignons for a buck a piece [thumb] They also had large Shrimp for $3.49 a pound. Can you guess what I cooked!
I grilled the steaks,sauteed the shrimp,baked potatos and made a salad. Even had a cake for dessert!

Yum,Yum!

by melcon6 on November 05, 2004 11:49 AM
OH that sounds AWESOME !! [Smile] Around here, the large shrimp would run, at the least, $9.99 - $12.99lb.

And I love shrimp,now Maine shrimp which is wwwwwaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too small, (a little bit bigger than a langostino) Is only in season here about a month now , because of new fishing regs. but you can pick it up for $.99lb. [Razz]
