Offering alternative meals to children - yay or nay

Nay!!! ~~ I was raised. Eat what your mother puts on the table or go hungry. I raised 3 of my own the same way. Worked very well.

Back Back ribs suggestions for novice

The Rendezvous in Memphis has been charcoal grilling loin backs ribs longer than Bittman has been alive. His methodology is close to The Rendezvous, but no cigar. ~~~~ Like you, grilling over wood coals and/or charcoal is my go to for loin back ribs after a dry rub. Out the back door, to the pit, and on the table in a hour... and they are awesome.

Diane in Bexley...This very doable on a gas burner grill. Use your usual method for a little wood smoke.

purple skin garlic...

I've always associated it with imported(from Mexico)garlic.
It has appeared in stores for years about this time of year .
It's OK, but not quite up to garlic from "Caulifornia" IMO

What's for Dinner #368 - The "I Have No Title for This Thread" Edition [Old--through 6/9/15]

Saw some beautiful baby Bok Choy today and bought a big bag.
Yesterday while rummaging around in one of the freezers I saw a big 'bucket' of chicken stock. I got to thinking soup. Baby Bok Choy soup I would call it. So by the seat of my pants I thawed the stock, chopped up some of the Bok Chow, and started adding a little of 'dis and a little of' dat that included fresh ginger, garlic, a few snow peas, a few small broccoli florets, about 4 green onions, 5 or 6 chopped mushrooms, some salt, black and white pepper along with some dried cayenne pepper flakes. Tasted pretty good. Then I added about two tablespoons of Red Boat, A few drops of Sesame oil, and another slice of ginger. Now then!!!
Then I remembered I had about 2 dozen shrimp left from last night's Po-Boys, so they got chopped and thrown in right at the last minute. Delicious!! I was quite proud of myself until I Goggled Bok Choy Soup....and saw about a dozen recipes. LOL. So much for my original creation!!
In the mean time, the little brown-eyed girl had cooked some Chicken Sauce Piquant, a pot of rice and fresh squash from the garden. After the soup I had some of that too! ~~~ Now for a little Chocolate Ice Cream.

Perfect Rice

How to choose beef?

I suspect you're right, but I would think a beef chuck with good marbling is available, by some name, where ever beef is sold. Not USDA graded obviously, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Amiright?

How to choose beef?

I use USDA choice grade chuck roast for beef stew.
Look for one with good marbling..intramuscular fat.
Cube it up. Brown well. Do not "boil". A slow simmer is all that is needed.

What's for Dinner #367 - June's Summer Song Begins [through June 3, 2015]

I just had to have a big pot of Red Beans & Rice for Sunday dinner after Church.

So the beans were loaded with Andouille and Tasso from Wayne Jacobs... with a link of smoked sausage on the side.
French Bread, a big green salad, and Louisiana Hot Sauce
Nothing more was wanted or needed.

I'm sure breakfast tomorrow or the next day, or both will include warmed up beans and poached eggs.
