Saturday Snippets-Grill Toy, Crock Pot BBQ Pork and Mother's Day Weekend

I'm always amused and entertained with the grilling displays at stores. While making my rounds this morning I saw this bacon cooker at Walmart and thought it was really neat for the guy griller that has everything:@) Love the reservoirs for catching the fat. 

The weather forecasters were calling for a hot and sunny day here north of Philly... Turned out, not so much. So I sprinkled some country ribs with equal parts garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, smoked paprika and two times as much seasoned salt (I used Lawry's Chile and Garlic). Gave it a few cranks of black pepper and tossed them into my crock pot on high. Four hours later, shred the meat and slathered it with BBQ sauce... Not a bad sandwich and the house smelled pretty darn good too:@)

Here in the mid Atlantic states it is officially the beginning of gardening season, we have passed our last frost date and can plant annuals... and the chaos at the garden center this morning proved that! Since I looked at the 10 day forecast (which showed night time temps in the 50/60's) and got my planters in last weekend, and we had several 80+ degree days, I'm the proud Momma of... Yep, the string beans are coming up-Woo Hoo!

Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day-enjoy:@)

  4. The ribs look so good. I love them. I like the bacon holder for the grill. My son has everything so I am always on the look out for something unusual for him.
    Have a Happy Mothers Day.

  6. The bacon grilled looks like a fun toy. Our friends in Arkansas have a microwave version like that and that love it. Your planter is coming along nicely, Lynn, and I can just about smell those BBQ'd ribs.
    Happy Mother's Day!

  9. Thanks Lynn. Are you refering to squirrels, I hope. I fixed a habanaro cocktail for them once and put in my bird feeder with the sunflower seeds and they gobbled them right up. Must have Mexican squirrels:-)
