Sierra's Grill

I went on a blind date October 31st at Sierra's Grill.  This is the California Burrito.  It is HUGE.  It feels like it weighs 5 pounds.  We got take out from Sierra's Thursday.  I love being reminded of our first date :)

Maiwand Kabob

This is always the most satisfying take out.  Chicken kabob with rice and salad.  I got some vegetable samosas too.  I like the baked baloni appetizer too.

Fourth of July

Ribs, macaroni salad, cornbread, watermelon, mom's baked beans, and a strawberry cider!
For the ribs: I buy the triple pack of St Louis Style pork ribs from Costco.  It feeds a crowd.
Rub Ingredients:

* 1 1/4 cups sugar
* 1/2 cup salt
* 1/4 cup ground black pepper
* 1/4 cup paprika
* 2 to 4 slabs baby back ribs

This made more than enough for 3 racks and I just mixed it together in a tupperware and kept it for later.

Combine all the ingredients for the dry rub in a mixing bowl. Rub the ribs with the dry rub. Lay on a doubled sheet of aluminum foil.

They were really good like beach fries.  There was so much feta on my pita I think it was a bit too salty for me.  I can't wait for the truck to come again!  Check out their menu on their website and see if you can catch the truck too!

Girl's Brunch Day

Bought Pineapple Malibu and every kind of juice at the liquor store.  I think we had mango, fruit punch, pineapple, possibly some orange juice.  Very good.  Easy to drink

Spinach and Cheese Ravioli

I bought the huge pack of spinach and cheese ravioli at Costco.  I finally made a meat sauce for it this past week.  It was okay, but I think my boyfriend's spaghetti is better!

Firecracker Meatballs

I loved this Hello Fresh recipe.  I ate both servings!  I am going to recreate this one for sure!
