Grill is heating up for some steaks ( el-cheapo's ) round steak with Montreal smoke seasoning sprinkled on....

Tina is cooking me a baked potato in the microwave oven.

She's going to have a taco in a soft tortilla bowl / cup.

Hey, Jimmy....take that microwaved potato, cut it in half, and 'finish' it off on the grill. Be sure to let the skin side crisp up as well as the cut side. You won't even think it could have been cooked in the microwave when you do that.

I got to have my yummy pork steak on the grill.....Mr. Amazing had a boneless loin chop. I think we're both happy! Well, maybe I'm HAPPIER ~ I made the braised kale with bacon & onion. Need I say more? ((Barb's goin', 'Lawdy, NO, don't say anything else about that vile stuff!' Hahahahaha))

Yesterday a recipe for chicken wings from a friend in Seattle, today Huli Huli chicken from Beth in Florida. There is also a potato salad that claimed to be Japanese style and some green beans with onion, tomatoes and basil from an Italian cookbook.

Huli Huli chicken.?... I see it here, but honestly Tina and I never heard of it.

Looks good Norm. Japanese potatoes??... I thought the Japanese didn't eat potatoes. Or is that the Chinese??......

The recipe said it was an American dish that had been interpreted by someone in Japan and put cucumbers, carrots, onion, boiled egg and uses Japanese mayo and mustard. I just used regular mayo and a German mustard.

You can see the recipes at http://normmatthews.blogspot.com

Jimmy, the Huli Huli Chicken was first mentioned by Bugs and it sounded interesting so I checked it out and found a recipe I've made a number of times. I did learn to cut back on the amount of sugar and up the spicy for our tastes, but it's basically a really sweet BBQ sauce for chicken. But beware! Because of the high sugar content and the ketchup it will burn on to the grill in a heartbeat. That's why I strongly suggest browning it on nonstick foil on the grill.

Here's the recipe I started with:

Huli Huli Chicken

4 – 6 Boneless Chicken Thighs, cleaned of excess fat, cut into chunks
Sauce:
1/4 c. Brown Sugar
1/3 c. Ketchup
2 T. Dry Sherry
1 ¼ t. Grated Ginger
½ t. Garlic Powder
½ t. Onion Powder
1 T. Garlic Chili Paste
1 T. Soy Sauce
½ t. Sesame Oil

Reserve 1/3 c. sauce for basting. Marinate Chicken chunks in sauce for 3 hours or overnight.
One half hour before grilling, drain marinate off chicken. Add 1 T. Canola oil and stir to coat. Grill over med-high flame on a piece of non-stick foil. After turned twice, baste with reserved sauce, allow to caramalize.
Serve with basmati rice.

Norm, I saw the recipe for the crispy oven wings.....very interesting to use baking powder to draw out the moisture and crisp up the chicken. One of these days I will definitely give that one a try!

Shrimp for breakfast? Makes my gut roll over just thinking about it today. I am sure it is wonderful for fish lovers.

I ran across a recipe that called for sweet chili powder. Huh? I Googled it but didn't find out much other than one brand I have never heard of. Anyone know anything about it?

I use sweet chili paste or sauce but the only thing I can think of for a sweet chili powder would be a sweet Hungarian paprika......

I did a search and came up with probably the same one you did.....but it does mention the varieties of chili used with the explanation they are 'sweeter' and not as hot. Here is the link:

Thank you! So a combo of ancho and New Mexico chilies plus other spices. Hmmm. I wonder if there is a recipe for mixing your own out there?

I don't know about sweet chili powder, but I have always considered sweet chili sauce to mean Heinz Chili Sauce.

I got up early to start cooking things for toady. I turned on the oven to bake a cake but the oven temp wouldn't go above 260. Chit! So I turn it off, wait a couple of minutes and turn it back on. This time it rises to 350. Good! So I put in my cake and set the timer. The timer goes off and I open the door to find a raw cake. WTH? The oven still says 350. I turn on my toaster oven and finished baking it in there. In the meantime I stick a thermometer in the oven to see what the temp really is: 179. Piece of junk! I refuse to fix it again. I will make do with a toaster oven.
Anybody have a suggestion for a new oven?

OMG, Barb.....you put the hunk-O-pork in the smoker at 10 last night and then did the (literal) set-it-and-forget-it ??? Boy, you would have been po'd if you would have discovered it at Thursday! LOL

We have to head out to the airport to pick up DD#2 and GS. They don't get in until 9 p.m. so we're going to head that way and stop at Buffalo Wild Wings for a small late supper

Ribs were on sale for less than $7.00 a slab so I got two and smoked one and did the other like Charlie likes, a Korean spicy recipe. This is the smoked ones.
