Mmm… sweet potato fries

Dodged another tornado this afternoon, series of twisters tore a path away from us towards the east.  A few gusts here and a bit of rain and thunder is all.  I’ve been having fun with my new saw toys, making some tables for the basement where Mrs J has set up sewing central.

Here’s a little something to tide us over:Spotted these in the freezer section at the store the other day and snagged them.  They are pretty good, I deep fried these from frozen.  The meat is from a package of baby back ribs I left cook on low all night in chicken broth.  After it cooled the next day I removed the bones and cooked some of it again in pork fat skimmed from the chilled broth from the crockpot.  Some of the edges crisped up nicely.  The bun was fresh baked.  I may have another when I hit publish on this post.

Sweet Potato Fries


Just a quick note to mention the Ore-Ida brand frozen sweet potato fries I bought the other day.  Dropped some into the deep fryer this afternoon, they came out looking and tasting great.  I left off the ketchup for these, I was wanting to get the flavor unenhanced by anything other than salt and pepper.

The sammich is just some leftover BBQ from the big picnic on Memorial Day weekend.  It is a fresh hoagie roll, and I put some homemade BBQ sauce on it.  Tasty.  The mild banana pepper rings were just right as a garnish.
