Family Meal Planning
Backyard Barbeque with recipes
Suggested Menu:

Green Salad with grilled mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and peppers
Baked Potatoes
Grilled Tenderloin
Baked Apples
Sunshine Tea

Tip: Have plenty of disposable plates, napkins, cups and cutlery with barbeque theme. Decorate with hanging lanterns. Make place cards out of flip-flops with guest’s name on each.
Place flowering pot plants and citronella plants to repel bugs around eating or camping area. Use aquarium gravel to make mosaic scenes down center of tables. May draw design and allow children to glue the gravels for the runners. May use shells for décor.
Food for Thought:
As soon as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals …John 21:9 LB
Be sure to check fuel source: gas tank or charcoal. Be careful igniting charcoal. Heat grill to a temperature of approximately 300 to 350 degrees. Before starting the cooking, have a bottle of water handy in the event too much fire extends. Have proper utensils or tinfoil. Cast iron is a good utensil for cooking on a bbgque grill. To prevent sticking, wash the pots in soapy water and rinse ahead of time. Heat oven to 500 degrees and turn off heat. Pour a coating of oil or shortening in the bottom and allow to sit in the oven overnight. Rewash the next day. Skillets with tinfoil covers or a Dutch oven with a lid are useful for the bread. Clean grill rack with a wire brush and spray with non-stick spray.
Be sure to take serving dishes and utensils. May store in large plastic containers that can be easily stacked.
Baked Potato: Wash potatoes, rub with cooking oil and wrap in individual foil. Place over hot coals or on grill rack for approximately 1 hour.
Salad: Quarter tomatoes. Cut thick onion slices for grill. Clean large mushrooms and slice. Clean red and green peppers and cut into halves. Place all vegetables on grill or foil and cook for 10 minutes or until desired doneness. Meanwhile, prepare lettuce or greens. When vegetables are cooked, chop and mix with greens. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve. Serve with favorite dressing.
Baked Apple: Core apple. Fill each with 1-teaspoon brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon raisins and sprinkle with cinnamon. Dot apple with butter or margarine and wrap in foil. Grill for 30 minutes.
Tenderloin: Rub individual tenderloin or pork chops with favorite salt and pepper seasonings. Place directly on grill rack and cook for 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness. Serve with bbque sauce recipe.
Biscuits: Place one layer of biscuits in skillet or Dutch oven that has melted butter. Cover and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until done. If not brown, turn over and allow to brown on the other side for 5 minutes.
BBQue Sauce: Mix one cup of bbque sauce with one tablespoon honey, ¼ cup brown sugar. 1/4 cup catsup, 1 t. mustard, 1 teaspoon of garlic and 1 t soy sauce and ¼ cup corn oil. Stir well. Heat. Serve with meat.
From the Nutritionist:
Keep outdoor food service area clean. Keep water and disposable towels nearby. Also have a garbage can. If grilling away from house and kitchen, prepare greens and lettuce ahead of time and place in a plastic storage container. Make sauce ahead of time and pour into a jar. May warm on back of grill later. Precut vegetables and apples and rub potatoes with oil ahead of time and wrap in foil packets for grilling later. Season meat and place in plastic container. Take plenty of condiments like salt and pepper, cheese for potatoes. Store all food items in a cooler container to prevent spoilage. Keep all foods at safe temperatures until cooked and cook done to prevent any sickness that will affect your outing. Placing the family size tea bag in a gallon of water and setting in the sunshine until desired strength makes sunshine tea. Southerners desire tea with sugar and ice. However, diabetics should eliminate the sugar from the apples and tea. Do not cook with sugar substitutes. Add after cooking, if desired. One slice of Bread and one small potato are two carbohydrates. Apple and potato with salad have vitamins A & C and minerals. Meat has protein. Happy Backyard Barbeque cooking!
