    MRD,

    It's literally ground, shredded or minced beef.

    Sounds like you're not necessarily wanting to do a Mexican type dish, but it does work well in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. That's what it's primarily used in.

    I like the recipe idea that Nennie has posted. It's a meat that would take well to stewing in a crockpot with lots of ingredients.

    I just discovered Goya coconut water in the international food aisle. It has little chunks of young coconut in it which really amuses me for some reason.

    Does anyone ever cook sweet potatoes on the grill? I often take regular potatoes and cut them up and wrap them in a foil packet on the grill and I'm just wondering if anyone does something similar with sweet potatoes. I really like them, but it's too warm to get the oven going just to bake them or make sweet potato fries. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks!

    I put a lot of things either on the stovetop or in the microwave first before I grill them.
    I'd do the same with the sweet potatoes.

    I've never grilled sweet potatoes, but was intrigued, so googled "grilled sweet potatoes". I found three basic methods:

    cut into spears, brushed with oil and seasoned, and grilled directly on the grate

    cut into spears, brushed with oil and seasoned, and grilled in a foil packet

    precook until tender (boiled or microwaved), cut into spears, brushed with oil and seasoned, and grilled directly on the grate very briefly


    I'd be tempted to try the first option as it is less work. Let us know if you try them, Yardgnome.

    Oooh, I kept looking and this one looks really yummy but I think I'd use brown sugar instead of white.

    Yeah, I keep thinking of just trying to do them like a regular potato in a foil packet. I'll probably do the spears though, because I think the inside pieces without skin would get mushy. If I try them this week, I'll let everyone know.

    My daughter found Baconaisse. Bacon mayonnaise. My husband is thrilled. His next tomato sandwich is going to be made with baconaisse. I can't even imagine. Not sure I want to even try it. Anyone else even heard of it?

    I've heard of it, but I'm a little skittish. It sounds like it would taste a bit artificial. The image of Baco's and mayo keeps coming up..

    What is with letting your imagination take off with you?? At Least Try It!!! After that, you can condemn it! You could be pleasantly surprised. A try only requires a smidgen of a taste!
