homemade ranch dip/dressing mix this morning. Inspector Gadget loves those little green packets, but you have to make a gob of dip or split the package. Plus, the sodium content is a bit high. MSG must pack a sodium punch. My feet swell if I just look at a pickle. You should see what happens when I eat one. My mom tells me this water retention thing goes away eventually. Yay!
In the past if I was out of little green packets, I would add my own spices to sour cream, but now I have enough ranch mix to last a while. I bet it's cheaper than those packets too. I'm going to start making my own laundry detergent next. Really.
Fire Roasted Chili Lime recipe. You made a dry rub and kind of par grilled them on indirect heat on a grill. Since I grilled in the dark, I had to use my iPhone flashlight app to see.
Spicy Thai wings are definitely getting in the mix.
Since I'm the grill master and busy out by the grill, I usually serve a simple crudite platter I can assemble ahead of time and call it a day. There was a Tator Tot request last night, so I threw those into the oven during the last grill pass. After a busy weekend, an easy Sunday night dinner (and easy clean-up!) is a really good thing.
