Wheelbarrow BBQ

This is also from the Good and Easy Cookbook I blogged about on Wednesday/Thursday. The caption says to 'improvise a portable BBQ from a wheelbarrow.' Wow. I hope it is clean, for one thing. Also, why is one steak bright pink while the top three are browner? On a referring page is suggests that to builds this you need a metal wheelbarrow, wire mesh for fire basket and grill, along with wire for hooks. Is also has a drawing of a box of foil, for some reason.
I'm actually going to pass on putting in the BBQ marinade recipe as it is not safe to eat after standing out overnight. Salmonella city. But here's the suggested BBQ dessert:
Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream
1/4 cup butter
6 tbsp. brown sugar
2 cups Wheaties (What is it with the Wheaties in this book?)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 qt. vanilla ice cream
Cook butter and brown sugar until thick and smooth, stirring constantly. Blend in Wheaties and nuts. Spread in thin layer on baking sheet. When cool, crumble. Stir into softened ice cream; chill until firm in tray of refrigerator.
That's a lot of butter, and work. Why not crumble that stuff on top of the ice cream when serving?
***I've been given my first Blog Award! Thanks so much to Janice at Farmersgirl for awarding me one of the top ten food blogs in her rating. Very cool! Her blog is fun, too - go check it out!
**Check out the Comment Challenge 2010 at - kidlit bloggers are inspiring each other to promote their reviewing and reading blogs by commenting on 5 a day. This is really fun. All participating blogs are listed and when posting my 5 comments today I already picked up 3 book titles I want to read and a great writing tip.
Speaking of which...I read a new YA by Jennifer Hubbard yesterday - The Secret Year. I have to review it for Teenreads and I will likely give my editor a coronary there when I turn in the review EARLY before I leave for ALA in Boston next weekend!

Can't you use the marinade, but refrigerate it??

I love to cook too and have several of my mother's cookbooks that are now well over 70 years old. The thing I wish I had was my grandmother's recipes for various things that were in her head and not on paper. Kay Lassiter
