Lots to Do

     Today was the boy's first day of fourth grade, so we'll have his favorite meal, spaghetti & meatballs, (recipe links to follow) for dinner tonight. Beyond today, it's my week to cook on Thursdays at the Elks, and a menu for 50 or so servings of pulled pork, homemade slaw, BBQ chicken sandwiches, beanies & weenies, chicken salad and couple of green salad offerings had to be purchased and prepped. For now, just chicken is marinating in pimenta moida, a wet Portuguese crushed red pepper and we'll rub down the pork with a good dose Dad's Rub tomorrow.

     i will be putting up the posts for the pulled pork and slaw soon, both really basic but really yummy.

Dad's Rub

Dad's Rub is just my own little spice blend that i use for grilling and sauces and all sorts of other places.

It is simply
2 parts Chili Powder- the "Hot" Mexican on the market shelves usually isn't too spicy.
1 part each
- Black Pepper
-Cayenne Pepper
-Dry Mustard Powder

Please note there is no salt in this rub. I prefer to salt to taste
