Good BBQ

Tonight we decided to head out for some BBQ…. Finding good BBQ in York, PA can be challenging.  We went to the Corner Stable and it was really good.  It’s a lot better than runnin to Maryland.  While there, we saw one of our good friends from Oklahoma (must be a BBQ thing) but we showed up about 15 min apart.

The Soda Run

I purchase soda for the office every two weeks or so at Wegmans Supermarket.  This is a really nice store and they seem to have “everything under the sun” when it comes to groceries.   The typical soda run is about 10 cartons of soda (12-packs) of various types, and a box of hot chocolate once a month.   


My only real complaint is that it is always packed, and it takes “forever” to check out.  I’ve tried it at different times of the day and it’s generally busy…. If you have lots of time, it’s a great place to walk around and browse.  I really like their meat / seafood counter and they have a large selection of tea (I’m partial to Tea).


I’m trying to decide what to cook this weekend…. I’m thinking that some nice grilled fish would be good, with some wax green beans, and a nice stuffing (maybe crab stuffing)…. I’ll need to think more about that.

Talking about turmeric

I was doing a little more looking at "Tumeric" and found that it has some many other potential health benifits… Who would have guessed.


Old time eats are interesting

Last weekend was pretty good… I finally got to play with my Colonial Williamsburg Cookbook!  I made two different dishes last weekend, the Calm Chowder and the Gingered Beef.  I really loved the Gingered Beef… The interesting item in this dish is Turmeric which gives everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) a bright yellow color.  But it was good to eat!  I wanted to add some snow peas to the dish to add just a touch of green… but because of time constraints, I needed to Crock Pot the dish and I forgot to add them at the end of the cooking.


The Clam Chowder was good; however, I should have used flower as my thickening agent and not corn meal.  It was not bad, but I was hoping to get more of a sooth rich consistency and less of a rustic soup.  I started with 12 large in the shell clams and steamed them, and then used the broth as the base for the chowder… It was a worth while experiment; but next time,… I try it with flower and butter to thicken it up.


I’m thinking that the gingered beef would be a good item to adapt to a Dutch Oven because of the long cooking time involved.
