Spiced Meat Rub

When I posted this Spice Rubbed Chicken a couple months ago, I am not sure that I emphasized how much we love this chicken. And the rub. It’s a perfect combination of sweet and spice.

I mix up this rub in large quantities and keep it in my pantry. I might even give it as gifts this holiday season (shhh, it’s our little secret!) I have even expanded the proteins that I use this rub on. It goes amazingly well with pork and I’d like to try it on tofu as well.

I just wish we had a grill so I could taste the awesomeness of this rub and meat that’s been cooked on a grill…

    I can’t believe the timing on this – friends of ours just went into the hospital to have their baby about two hours ago! About a week ago I cooked and froze a Stuffed Pepper Casserole and a loaf of Zucchini Bread in anticipation of their bundle of joy, but I am loving this idea way better! I may try to do this instead. Thanks for the idea!

    All three, technically, are wireless headphones, even though
    using distinctive means for achieving the corresponding purpose.
    WAV and MP3 always be the mains ones you might want In addition to this,
    you also truly consider the connectability of this product.
