I cook on the weekends too. I got into it when my old lady used to have to work weekends. Summer was no sweat, grill and smoker stuff. But I got into doing inside cooking in the cold season. I used to make 2 big things on a Saturday. Like a lasagna and a chicken soup. Take 1/3 of one for supper tonight and 1/3 of the other for tomorrow. Then 1/3 of both in the fridge for 2 weeknight suppers and the remaining in the freezer for an easy meal down the road. It worked out great!
This morning I made "dads famous breakfast mix". Sorry, no pics. Basically just home fries, ground breakfast sausage, peppers & onion, scrambled eggs all mixed together and cheddar cheese on top. A couple shots of tobasco sauce and a little catsup....that's a good stick to your ribs kind of breakfast!!
I want to bust out my smoker when I get back home. I have a couple racks of baby backs in the freezer that have been calling my name. I use a dry brine I get from a local butcher shop that is absolutely amazing
. Coat your meat and don't be cheap with it. Seal it up in a freezer bag and leave it 3 days flipping it over daily. It creates its own juices and let me tell you, this stuff is the best! You really don't need any bbq sauce but I like to anyway. Something thin and vinegary works well with it.
I'll get some pics of those bad boys when I get into them, for sure!
